Illegal connections anger BWB.

Malawi’s Blantyre Water Board (BWB) has expressed concern over the increase in cases of illegal connection of water in the commercial city.

Acting Director of Water Distribution and Commence Bright Ziliwanda revealed this in Limbe where the organisation busted Shire Highlands Hotel which had been using the boards’ water illegally

According to Ziliwanda, the board disconnected water at the hotel after the facility failed to pay bills and instead of paying the bills, hotel management agreed to connect the taps illegally.

He revealed that the money the board loses due to illegal connection is equal to 20 percent of BWB revenue.

According to Ziliwanda, the board feels betrayed because it trusted that big institutions could not be involved in such malpractices.

The board has since promised to give a stiff punishment to the hotel.
