Sanitation infrastructure is one of the major infrastructures in deliverance of public health incentives within regions, urban areas and local rural areas example of the facilities includes public toilet, sewerage system and drainage system. African governments are facing daunting tasks in their attempts to provide effective and equitable sanitation infrastructure for their ever increasing urban populations (Issaka K, 2010). Sanitation is not simply a technical problem; it’s a social problem with emotional overtones. It actually talks to political economy. How do you manage between poor residents, black political leaders and old white managers? You better get all those groups in—otherwise it won’t work (Lina T, 2015). The Ugandan water supply and sanitation sector made substantial progress in urban areas from the mid-1990s until at least 2006, with substantial increases in coverage as well as in operational and commercial performance (Mugisha S, 2006). The water and sanitation sector was recognized as a key area under the 2004 Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP), Uganda's main strategy paper to fight poverty (WASHwatch.org). The institutions responsible for water and sanitation service delivery in Uganda have undergone tremendous reform since the 1990s, with a marked improvement in their capacity and level of professionalism (CSO, 2015).
