Minister dismisses MP’s WASA claims

    Public Utilities Minister Marvin Gonzales.

    Claims that government is working with a Canadian company to privatize WASA are being dismissed by the Public Utilities Minister.

    Mr Marvin Gonzales today held a media conference to respond to what he called “lies and misinformation” by UNC MP Dr Roodal Moonilal.

    However, the Minister said government has been open about its plans for the company with a report on WASA’s operations laid before cabinet, Parliament and a Joint Select Committee.

    Mr Gonzales also refuted the MP’s claim that there’s a backlog of 50,000 leaks to be addressed by WASA.
