Minister of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection, Jonas Chanda has implored institutions and individuals to pay for their water bills in order to receive quality water services.

Dr Chanda expressed concern that some individuals and institutions have taken advantage of government’s directive to water utility companies not to disconnect water during the pandemic, by not paying their bills.

Dr Chanda said government directed all water utility companies not to disconnect water from client during the COVID-19 pandemic period to ensure that people have access to adequate water.

He disclosed that following the directives, some institutions and individuals have completely stopped paying their water bills, thereby, putting a lot of pressure on water utility companies.

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
