Electricity, but no water
WHILE MOST BARBADIANS were praying for some tax relief from the 2016 Budget, Dorothy Cumberbatch was praying for some water to come through her taps.
In fact, it’s a prayer she has been repeating for over two weeks, as the 84-year-old resident of Vaughn’s Lane No.1, St Joseph has not had any water since August 2.
“There is no one to be angry with. I would just like some water,” she told a team from the WEEKEND NATION during an interview yesterday at her home.
She said during the past 16 days, she had been forced to rely on family members and neighbours to collect water for her from either the community tanks or water tankers from the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).
