Consumers Association of Mauritius opposes privatization of the country’s water facilities

Jayen Chellen, general secretary of the Consumers Association of Mauritius (ACIM), opposes privatization of the country’s water facilities. “We do not want water to be privatized because through the Bill Mauritius Fund, the CWA harvests Rs 3.2 billion” he says. “The sum needed to change the used pipes revolves around Rs 4 billion. This privatization will lead to an increase in costs and profits without improving the quality of the water. It is the shareholders who will benefit. We will also lose a patrimony. All economists agree that a public good should not be privatized." ACIM has asked to meet Ivan Collendavelloo, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Public Utilities on this subject but to no avail.
