Water chief now bags Shs20m

Grapevine operatives at NW&SC headquarters on Jinja Road in Kampala report that the board eventually reached a compromise with the Water officer and settled at a salary of Shs20m per month.
Besides the Shs20m, the man is also entitled to four vehicles, free housing, and free medication. This is considered highly classified information at NW&SC and the water body has been pulling their antennas up, trying to establish who leaked the information to the Grapevine. But the invincible Grapevine operatives lurking in the walls of the NW&SC premises have been hard to detect, at least by press time.
The disturbing part of the news is that other senior officials earn about Shs 4.5m and are distraught about the man's improved pay. The man started at Shs5m, moved to Shs15m and now Shs20m.
