Local engineer joins Chinese company to lay out major water supply project in Mwanza, Tanzania

The Mwanza region lies in the northwest of Tanzania and borders the southern shores of Lake Victoria, which is the largest freshwater lake in Africa and the second largest in the world. But residents near the lake have faced water scarcity issues due to inadequate facilities.

Kelvin Josephat Kituruka, a native of Mwanza, joined infrastructure company China Civil Engineering Construction Corp as a quality engineer after completing his studies in Dar es Salaam. In May 2017, the water supply project for satellite cities in Mwanza was launched, prompting Kituruka to return to his hometown to help address the water problem.
