On the heels of the Public Utilities Minister’s ordering of an audit into WASA’s water storage facilities, head of the Citizens Union of Trinidad and Tobago Phillip Alexander is calling for an audit of WASA altogether.
Minister Marvin Gonzales issued the call for an audit, after a ten million gallon storage tank at Picton Road, Laventille and another with half that capacity at Mt Hope have not been functioning for 15 years.
In a release today, Alexander said, “Finding out that the storage tanks that could have supplied most of west Trinidad have been in-operational for over 15 years is grounds enough to not only audit the water storage but all of WASA.”
“I have said for decades that our water shortages are deliberate to corruptly create money making opportunities for friends and financiers of governments.”
Alexander claimed that past and present government ministers were known to have benefitted from the artificial water shortages and system failures.
He said called for massive action and an audit of all of WASA.
