Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) Executive Director John Kapito has described the proposal by Lilongwe Water Board to hike Water tariffs by 50 percent as unfair.

In his speech, Kapito said: “The board is planning to increase the water tariffs at a time when their services are not good. This is too terrible and unfair to the consumer”.
He further threaten to take to task the responsible minister if he approves the proposal.
