We have had it with Blantyre Water Board. It is not only me, you see women carrying water on their heads every day in Blantyre. Is this the 21st century? You would think we are back 200 years, but evidently in those 200 years development has not taken its right course. And that is due to bad leadership. We should not take it. The Consumers Association of Malawi is not doing anything for us, where are you Mr Kapito?? Have you fallen asleep since the days of Bingu, when you were standing up for the rights of the people? Come on, take your responsibility, and act.
What we need is to go higher up. The Blantyre Water Board itself is not doing zip for us, so we need to go to the Big Boss himself. We elected Mr Mutharika, so he can serve us. Now we need him, we need decisive action and if Mr Kapito does not insist, we will ourselves.
YOUR EXCELLENCY, PROFESSOR ARTHUR PETER MUTHARIKA,
WE ARE IN A DIFFICULT POSITION BECAUSE YOUR EMPLOYEES ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB RIGHT. WHAT WE WANT FROM YOU IS TO FIRE THE WHOLE MANAGEMENT OF BLANTYRE WATER BOARD AND REPLACE THEM WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE CAPACITY TO GET THE SYSTEM WORKING. BRINGING IN GREEDY FOREIGNERS IN A PPP HAS NOT WORKED, AND WE KNOW THAT THE MANAGEMENT IS PLACING CORRUPTION ABOVE THE DELIVERY OF THE WATER WE NEED. WATER IS LIFE, AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO LIFE AS GUARANTEED IN THE CONSTITUTION OF MALAWI. AS OUR BROTHER HAS FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY, CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE. WE HAVE HIRED YOU THROUGH ELECTIONS TO SERVE US, NOW WE HUMBLY CALL ON YOU TO REPLACE THE MANAGEMENT OF BWB IMMEDIATELY, AND TO BRING THE CORRUPT PEOPLE THERE TO JUSTICE.
THE POPULATION OF BLANTYRE
