Rwanda: Water rationing warning as drought bites
Electrogaz, Rwanda's public utility, is considering water rationing due to shortages caused by a prolonged drought in parts of the country, officials said. Yves Muyange, the acting chief executive, said the country was now facing a deficit of up to 22,000 cubic metres of water every day and had no alternative until supplies had been boosted. "Starting this month, we are going to conduct rationing tests across major towns in the country to find out how to implement the programme," he said. Muyange said efforts were under way to increase water production across the densely populated country of nine million people. Environmental specialists blame the drought on climate change, with erratic rainfall and frequent dry spells combining to increase water shortages.
