Something is not washing at the $40 million Barbados Water Authority (BWA) headquarters now under construction at The Pine, St Michael, says Opposition member Senator Kerrie Symmonds.

His party leader Owen Arthur, who also weighed in on the issue, told party faithful last night during a mass meeting at Rices, St Philip, that the BWA matter had now led to all-out “warfare” between Minister of Water Resources Dr David Estwick and Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.

Symmonds and Arthur were speaking during a meeting at which Anthony Wood was nominated just minutes earlier to be the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) candidate for St Philip South against the incumbent Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) in the next general election.

In a scathing attack on the current administration, Symmonds told the crowd that he was made aware that everyone associated with the BWA construction project had to sign confidentiality agreements. (GE)
