Dear Vice President for Economic Cluster Dr. Igga,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to express my deep concern and disappointment regarding the decision to invest in water tankers instead of installing water pipes in Juba, the capital city.

Water is an essential resource for every individual’s well-being and plays a crucial role in the development and sustainability of any community. As a concerned citizen, I am disheartened to see that the allocation of resources has been directed towards water tankers, rather than addressing the long-standing issue of inadequate water infrastructure.

While water tankers can provide a temporary solution to immediate and urgent water supply needs, they are not a sustainable or cost-effective solution in the long run. The purchase and maintenance of water tankers require ongoing expenses, such as fuel and operational costs, which could be better utilized in developing a reliable and efficient water pipe network.

Investing in water pipes would not only provide a more reliable source of water for the residents of Juba but would also alleviate the burden on the government in terms of ongoing expenses. Additionally, the installation of water pipes would enhance the accessibility, equitable distribution, and quality of water for all residents.

I understand that decisions regarding resource allocation can be challenging, and there may be various considerations that contribute to the choice of water tankers. However, I strongly urge you to reconsider this decision and prioritize the installation of water pipes as a more sustainable and long-term solution.

Access to clean and reliable water is a fundamental right, and it is the responsibility of the government to ensure its provision to the citizens. By investing in water pipes, you would be addressing a critical need that would benefit the entire community, promote public health, and foster economic growth in Juba.

I kindly request that you review the current approach and work towards redirecting resources to implement a comprehensive water infrastructure plan. This would not only benefit the present generation but also leave a lasting legacy for future generations, ensuring a sustainable water supply system in Juba.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I trust that you will carefully consider my concerns and take appropriate action to prioritize the installation of water pipes in Juba. I am hopeful that together we can work towards creating a better and more sustainable future for our community.

Yours sincerely, Concerned Citizen.
