Boscobel residents frustrated about water challenges
A TWENTY-FOUR hour water distribution cycle. That’s what Opposition Leader Mia Mottley is calling for from the Barbados Water Autbority (BWA) to adequately handle the country’s water issues.
As the residents of Boscobel and surrounding areas gathered at the Boscobel Community Centre to tell of their horror stories tonight, the overwhelming feeling was one of anger and frustration.
Barbados Labour Party candidate for St Lucy Peter Phillips was highly incensed by what he saw as the unjust treatment of people within the affected parishes.
He said he had extended a welcome to acting general manager of the Barbados Water Authority John Mwansa to address the residents and explain what the issues were. Yet to receive a response to this invitation, Phillips added that he had come to the meeting “in a militant mood”. (AD)
