Barbados: Barbados Water Authority (BWA) and the Sanitation Service Authority are to be renegotiated

Contracts with unfair terms for the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) and the Sanitation Service Authority are to be renegotiated.

In her first address to the Barbados Labour Party’s Annual General Conference since its historic win on May 24, Prime Minister Mia Mottley outlined her intention to deal with contracts which were not arranged with the national interest in mind under the former Democratic Labour Party administration.

“We have come to the point where these contracts cannot be accepted. I spoke to you earlier and told you we are paying one million dollars a month effectively for a (BWA headquarters) building and a lease and for those who say I know the people, I know them, but I know everybody across Barbados too and nobody must ever get confused with friendship and duty, and nobody must ever get confused with contribution and ownership. This woman here will not be held hostage to anybody or by anybody,” she said.
