Government officials found themselves in hot water on July 5 as scores of St John residents lambasted the state about their dry taps.
From around 5 p.m. at the Gall Hill community centre, Minister of Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams, acting general manager of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) Dr John Mwansa, chair of the board Leodean Worrell and Member of Parliament for St John, Charles Griffith, came face-to-face with irate residents who did not hold back their frustrations about not having water for most of the year.
From Colleton, Welch, Glebe, Coach and Bath Land, the complaints were the same and there was no doubt that many of the residents are ready to picket at the doors of the BWA for what they are calling an injustice.
Coach Hill resident Sandra Sealey said she believed since they had no water, the BWA should not send them bills. (TG)
