MINISTER of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection Jonas Chanda has asked Kafubu Water and Sanitation Company (KWSC) to cancel bills customers accumulated but did not receive water due to the fixed billing system.
Dr Chanda was speaking when he toured some water projects under KWSC in Ndola.
“In the name of fairness and equity, people should not pay for services that they never received. Water bills that are unfair have to be cancelled. I know there are other outstanding issues like water bills from people who have fixed water billing system,” Dr Chanda said.
He said he was happy that KWSC had started putting up metered water billing system in some townships in Ndola.
He urged the company to speed up the installation of water meters.
Dr Chanda, who is Bwana Mkubwa Member of Parliament, was accompanied by KWSC director of engineering Bernard Phiri and Ndola deputy mayor Kennedy Kasaba. – CLICK TO READ MORE
