Somaliland:Hargeisa Water Agency Increase the Price of Precious Commodity


Somalilandsun:Hargeisa water agency has increased the cost of water by 52%.Many
households used to pay their water bills at Hargeisa water agency
headquarters were shocked to hear that 1 meter cube which usually costs
9500 Somaliland Shillings was now 14500 shillings.

Even though many Somaliland families hardly receive water from their taps
and some days go for weeks without water this new increase has dumbfounded
them. Most residents protested at the heavy-handedness of the water agency.
The Agency was tight lipped as we went to press and had not issued any
statement in defense of their unpopular move
