Don’t blame climate change


Share post:


That was how Member of Parliament for St Joseph Dale Marshall described the excuse provided by the Barbados Water Authority’s (BWA) acting general manager, Dr John Mwansa, yesterday, who blamed climate change for the bone dry taps in thousands of households on the eastern side of the island.

“There can be no reasonable excuse or explanation after three to four weeks of total absence of running water for the BWA to come with those kinds of explanations,” he said.

In addition to this, the frustrated MP said the BWA should have been under obligation to figure out what challenges it would face in the future and act in advance to address them, much like his administration did when it built the desalination plant in Brighton, St Michael.
