Going forward: robust good governance in the public sector

In a recent radio interview, the Minister for Energy and Public Service, Ivan Collendavelloo, stated that a decision was being taken to put the Central Water Authority (CWA) under private management. He supported this decision on the need for the CWA to overcome a disastrous situation it had landed in.

Up till now, investments in the country’s water system have been from the public sector. The CWA is a parastatal body. Reservoirs have been and are still being constructed with taxpayers’ money. The CWA’s manpower is also paid for out of water dues collected from users but also from the public purse.
