Southern Region Water Board has written Mulanje District Hospital to pay off K45 million water bill or water in all health facilities in the district would be disconnected.

Spokesperson for the Southern Region Water Board Rita Makwangwala has confirmed that the letter has been sent to the Mulanje District Hospital over the bill.

“We will disconnect the water in all health facilities in the district unless the bill is paid,” said Makwangwala.

But the spokesperson for Mulanje District Hospital Edson Chabwinda said the hospital is in discussion with the board.

“We have so far paid K5 million from Health Services Fund. We are in discussion with them so that we continue to pay by instalments,” said Chambwinda.

Escom and Lilongwe Water Board have so far moved in to install prepaid metres in government institutions which have difficulties in paying electricity and water bills.

The Board should proceed with its threat to disconnect water. There is a lot of waste of financial resources in the health sector because prioritization of activities was thrown to the dogs way back. Just check their monthly expenditure on allowances, you cannot believe when they say the health sector is poorly resourced. Rather we should be saying the health sector is poorly led!!!!!
