Japanese development agency- JICA, has entered into a partnership with Amuru District Local Government to repair 185 broken boreholes.
The cost of repairing a borehole ranges between 200,000 and 10 Million Shillings, depending on the extent of the damage.
Amuru has 548 boreholes of which 30 percent are nonfunctional.
Michael Lakony, the Amuru District LCV Chairperson confirmed the development to Mega FM saying rehabilitation of broken boreholes will start from Atiak Sub County, before other Sub Counties are considered.
According to Lakony, the rehabilitation works will go a long way to improving access to clean water.
Access to clean water currently stands at 70 percent.
