Ghana fights water privatization

Private participation in water delivery faces stiff challenge.

Government’s move to handover the management of the country’s water delivery could run into difficulty.

This follows the determination of the civil society groups to resist the implementation of what has come to be known as the private-public participation in water delivery.

Speaking to Joy business report a member of the National Coalition against Water Privatization Dr David Percy said Ghana’s water delivery system will be worse off if private companies are made to manage the water system.

The fight against water privatization is worldwide and growing. On one side, the populace who wants public water available at a reasonable price, controlled locally. On the other, multinational corporations and entities like the World Bank who force water privatization on any country that wants a loan. Take a guess as to which one will put the interests of the public first.
