The National Water and Sewage corporation management in Ibanda municipality has expressed disappointment about the rampant water meter theft that is increasing daily.
Speaking to www.mknewslink.com, the area manager Catherine Mwereere said that the theft of removing the meters takes place during night hours or when the owners are not at home during working hours.
She added that also the scrap dealers buy meters and other different scraps move from house to house buying them.
Catherine noted that many victims have been arrested and taken to police but they end up being given police bones. She expressed concern that the habits of vandalizing water meters by unknown people are becoming too much leaving water services crippled.
