Letters to the Editor

Still suffering for tap water

THE EDITOR: It is very distressing and annoying to have to pen this letter, the reason being that after 55 years of independence the people of Arima, a place of water, have no water in our homes.

De Gannes Street is especially earmarked for this insult. We have letters from as far back as when Morris Marshall was minister of public utilities. Pennelope Beckles, then MP for Arima, picketed the WASA office with residents of De Gannes Street but 20 years or so later there’s still no water.

This perennial lack of professionalism is ridiculous. Time to privatise WASA and instal meters in all homes.
