He made this statement during a presentation at the Water Show Africa Summit at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa from 28th – 29th March 2017.
Among the topics discussed at the conference were Promoting Technology Innovation for Clean and Safe Water, Emerging Sustainable Technologies for Portable and Waste Water Treatment, Integrated Urban Water Management Towards Diversification and Sustainability and Integrated Urban Water Management-Lessons and Recommendations from Across the World.
The conference, which brought together stakeholders from different African countries working in the water sector, discussed issues affecting the provision of safe water in Africa and how to address them.
According to Samuel Bangura, Sierra Leone is presently at the crossroad taking into consideration the current transformation which clearly shows that the country is fully ready for foreign investments and urged participating countries to come to Sierra Leone and do business enlightening that the conference is the platform to identify issues affecting the provision of safe water in African countries and hoped that stakeholders would identify solutions to them within the shortest possible time since water is life and is needed by all.
Before 2013, SALWACO was notorious for corruption and non-performance but since the appointment of Samuel Bangura as Director General, he has rapidly transformed the company from a dead to a more proactive institution by providing safe water for people in rural areas largely due to the young, intelligence and dedicated staff who are determined to implement the President’s dream of providing safe pipe-borne water to rural areas.
Recently, the company sent 137 staff to Uganda to improve their knowledge in the water sector.
