World Water Day, here are two pictures reminding us of that blue gold none of us could do without.
The pipes are a reminder of some of the travails many, many Ghanaians go through to have a good supply of water into their homes, but how the privatised management that is Aqua Vitens Rand Limited--a South African/Dutch management company--manages manages to not fix the water problem since they took over Ghana Water Company LImited in 2005.
I'm concerned on this day about the role of private management companies that purport to resolve our water problems--how effective are they in the long run? Is it not better to invest money into state-run systems to develop capacity?
