Blantyre residents experience dry taps days after waterboards raised tariffs


Residents in Blantyre are experiencing dry water taps days after boards signed service level agreements as one of justifications for water tariffs increase.

In the service level agreements which they signed with Consumers Association of Malawi, water boards including Blantyre Water Board (BWB) pledged uninterrupted water supply since consumers will be digging deeper into their pockets to buy water.

According to a snap survey that Zodiak did in areas such as Ndirande Newlines and Machinjiri, for example, people are staying between two to four days without water.

The sporadic water supply is also being experienced in Nkolokosa.

BWB spokesperson Evelyn Khonje was not immediately available for a comment but last week, the board blamed the situation on electricity interruptions.
