The true development is surely brought by the people themselves and imposed by the government or development partner. People feel that they are part of development process and therefore sense of ownership is cultivated. The development of anything is about brain alerts, if develop area say providing water free of charge means they can even sabotage the infrastructure, even cut pipes of water for cattle consumption especially in areas of pastoralists. There is evidence that, households where there is violence against women, women prefer to fetch water far away as a way of relaxation. So before one imposing subsidies to water first must let know why they are given water, if possible contribute to the water services except older people.
