BWB decries vandalism, illegal connections

The Blantyre Water Board (BWB) says it is making strides to make sure that everyone has potable water even though rampant vandalism and illegal connections are affecting the board’s operations.

According to Public Relations Officer for the board Priscilla Mateyu, vandalism and illegal connections are the biggest problems the board is facing which are making it to fail to provide residents of the city with potable water.

She added that BWB is not realising enough money to provide water to all Blantyre residents and surrounding areas due to the malpractices.

“The Blantyre water board is facing a problem of illegal connections and vandalism which is a setback to our provision of potable water to all Malawians,” said Mateyu.

The board has always claimed that it loses over K40 million Kwacha every month due to the malpractices. To curb the crime, BWB offers rewards towards people whose reports lead to arrest of suspects.

But Mateyu said that despite the setback, the board is planning to launch a project that will ensure that Blantyre residents and others from surrounding areas receive potable water without a problem.

The $3.5 million project will be funded by the Indian bank and it will focus on Likhubula River.
