DR HIGIRO SEMAJEGE (Lwemiyaga County, Masaka): Thank you, Mr Chairman. I amthanking you for giving me this chance to speak and also I am very grateful that our House hasknown its responsibilities and we are really doing a good job. Because without this, I would nothave had chance to make a comment on the Communication from the Chair. A lot was said andthat Communication is excellent in this way but there are a few points which needed to bestressed and which were not as stressed as I would have liked. Number one, is a question of life; and the life I am talking about is water. Water is life; withoutwater, animals suffer and die. Man and other crops do not survive, Mr Chairman, we know thatin Uganda there are very many belts which are very dry but which are very important sectors ofour economy. These sectors have periodic long draughts. This has been known for very manyyears, but it appears were still dependent on whether on chance. You hear of famine -(Interruption)MR OKODI:Point of information. Mr Chairman, while Uganda is endowed with plenty ofwater resources, I want to say there is luck of planning on the part of Government. I am sayingthis because there is a famous Kacumu Water Works, which is feeding Lira town with water, adistance of about 40 KM. Between Lira Town and Water Works itself there are settlements andtherefore, people lure thirst for this water. This water is just passing without catering for thosepeople who are around. This is a very unfortunate situation.MR ORYANG: Point of information. Thank you, Mr Chairman. I would like to give furtherinformation to the Informer and the hon. Member holding the Floor. The Kacumu Water Projectalthough outside Lira is meant for the Municipality but along the way the 42 KM run there aretees, if you know what tee means. There are tees that are blocked up waiting to be connected toareas that are ready. The problem now is that the water is being paid for; it is not free of charge.The service is to be paid for. So, until and when the schools enroute - the centres enroute areready -(Interruptions)I was saying when the schools and the trading centres on the way betweenKacumu and Lira town are ready to pay for water there is no reason why they should not beconnected. It is not true that no body is thinking about the Institutions enroute. This has beenthought of a long time ago at the time of planning. Thank you very much.DR HIGIRO: Thank you for your information. I am very pleased that one of the Informers saidthat there is water but we lack planning. (Interruption)MR MARWAS: Point of order.
