NWSC Named African Water Utility Of The Year, Second Time In A Row
13th May 2014
NWSC has been crowned the African Utility of year once again at the ongoing Africa Utility Week in Cape Town. The corporation beat Nairobi City Water & Sewerage Company, Nyeri Water & Sewerage Company from Kenya and Rand Water from South Africa to scoop the prestigious award for the second year running. The yearly Industry Awards Gala Dinner took place on the 13th May 2015 during the 15th annual African Utility Week. These prestigious Industry Awards hosted 700 of Africa's most distinguished power and water industry professionals, many of them long standing attendees of African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa to celebrate the triumphs and successes of Africa's power and water sector during 2014/15.
Winning the award 2 years in a row is validation of NWSC's tremendous work in ensuring quality service delivery and customer delight evidenced by the corporation's growth from 23 to 97 towns in the last 18 months which has seen network expansions increase from 80km annually to 1300Km. This recognition comes after NWSC was also recognised in London as the best regional enterprise and the MD as best manager, in Berlin for perfection, quality and ideal performance and in Geneva for excellence, customer care, leadership and commitment to the environment. Back home, the corporation also won best customer care at the social media awards. All these were achieved this year.
NWSC recognises the strategic value of corporate awards which is the reason as to why the corporation has managed to continuously attract talent and retain it, building a sales advantage and a great corporate direction enshrined in the 5 year strategic direction. This strategic direction aims to achieve 100% service coverage by 2018.
The Managing Director, Dr Silver Mugisha expressed his sincere gratitude towards the National Water family for its undisputed contribution to this achievement, "Dear all, I honestly and whole heartedly want to commend your efforts to serve our customers diligently. The African Water Utility Award is a derivative of these efforts. I am proud of you!"
