Kampala — Dwellers in Kampala and neighbouring districts have spent the better part of today's morning trekking to fetch water from spring wells after National Water and Sewage Corporation (NWSC) taps ran dry.

The breakdown in water supply that started yesterday has affected parts of Mukono, Wakiso and Kampala.

Officials from NWSC said the water shortage was due to repairs at the main water reservoir at Muyenga in Kampala City.
