The hotel was stealing water

According to media reports, Blantyre Water Board officials have busted one of the country’s oldest hotels, Shire Highlands Hotel in Blantyre.

The reports which have been monitored by Malawi24 indicate that the hotel had made an illegal connection which they were using for the hotel.

“They had a legal connection which they were using for smaller things, however for such things as plant watering, bath water for their clients and most of the stuff that demand huge amounts of water, they were using the illegal connection,” a source said to Malawi24.

It is said that the hotel had connected through a pipe of BWB after bypassing the metre which is used to record water usage and costs of the water used.

Meanwhile, the Water Board has challenged that it will charge Shire Highlands for the water they have been using. Malawi24 understands that the cost runs into hundreds of millions.

  1. That person looks like she is worshing hands. Kapena mwangozifuna ndalama nanu Amalawi24 muzipanga post zolongosoka asa osati izo

  2. This is very unfortunate and it is justifying the fact that everyone in our once beloved country has a corrupt and cashgate mind hence we strongly need spiritual deliverance. We keep on blaming the Government for failing to provide social services yet on the other hand and to the greater extent we steal from it.With this behaviour we cannot develop and we’ll remain the poorest nation in the world.

  6. If allegetion proved true, the BWB must have taken serious act on this because most of the times thats residents who blame for such kind of cases.
    I believe it isn’t high time for the WB organization to go for Illigal Connection Campaign ( ICC ) specially for companeys and business all

  10. Why mentioning Paul Mphwiyo , has it got any connection with Paul Mphwiyo . The best example would have been CROSSROADS HOTEL which had bypassed the ESCOM meter during BINGU’s time , it seems it was a deal supported by government officials.

  11. Hundreds of millions? What a joke! BWB has not been able to supply water in Blantyre city over the recent years. The hotel might have been using the alternative source to supply water into premises.
