"Illegal Mining And Sand Whining Major Challenges For Our Operations" - GWCL MD

The Managing Director for the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL), Ing Dr Clifford Braimah has touted the gains made by the company in supplying portable drinking water for Ghanaians as he says Illegal Mining and Sand Whining were their major challenges.

According to him, the company underwent major challenges throughout the year which made achieving the company’s aim of providing portable water for all a challenging one.

The MD for the GWCL was speaking at the Information Ministry’s State of the Agency Report to update Ghanaians on the success story and their challenges which was held in Accra.

Ing Dr Braimah noted that, these are not the only challenges they faced but also frequent power outages, encroachment on their lands and also people destroying their water pipelines which made their operation a difficult one.

He used the opportunity to appeal to all and sundry to come to the aid of the company and help them solve these challenges.

Ing Dr Braimah also added that, the company really needed the 300% tariff increment they demanded from the PURC which he says, their reasons where justifiable which would have benefited the company tremendously.

Ing Dr Braimah also denied claims that, using of drones to monitor the usage of water by citizens will cause job looses but says, it will rather create more employment.
