  1. The water crisis issues l is unbearable, coupled with instability in elective to supply,we hope taps will start flowing as early as possible, because I can't count how much I've spent so far on a bike to fetch water, at the heart of the rainy season,when STUDENTS are not many in BAMBILI,yet taps are still unable to flow,where as others have water all round the clock on their houses.We equally need a public tap in BAMBILI, especially at the entrance or centre of BAMBILI.Thank you very much for that beautiful news package,more Grace to you sir.
