BONGO: NGOs in Bongo are so worried about government claims of ownership…. –Edward Bawa


The Member of Parliament for Bongo Constituency Edward Bawa has told Apexnewsgh.com that Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) assisting to bring developments in the Bongo Constituency are worried because their works in the Bongo Constituency is mistaken to be the work of government.

According to him, out of 94 boreholes, the District Chief Executive claimed it was provided by the government in the constituency, only 10 were built by the government and the rest was provided by NGOs such as UNDP, UNICEF, WaterAid, and others.

“If you look at issues of water, a lot of Non-Governmental Organizations became worried that their work at the constituency level was misappropriated to be the works of government. For example, the DCE was going around saying that he had built about 94 boreholes but when you check based on the government infrastructure tracker that is provided, the government have only built 10 boreholes and the rest were Non-governmental Organization UNDP, UNICEF, WaterAid, etc and you know, no NGO will come into a community without passing through the Assembly. So, I can tell you the NGOs are very worried, and is important that I reassure them. They are the key partners in our development particularly with water.”

However, Mr. Bawa told Apexnewsgh.com that a certain Turkish friend helped him during his campaign with 5 boreholes to support some parts in his constituents who were in dare need of water, particularly where Muslims were dominated and there was no way he could claim he donated those boreholes even though his friend was doing it on his behalf unlike the District Chief Executive Mr. Ayinbisa who was going around telling people that government provided 94 boreholes.
