Pacific Limited hails Malawi Govt recognition

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The Pacific Limited says it is humbled by the government’s gesture to recognize its free borehole rehabilitation initiative as bearing a huge impact on many Malawians.

Speaking when he presented the 2024-2025 national budget on Friday, Finance Minister, Simplex Chithyola said the Pacific Limited initiative has assisted in increasing access to clean and potable water among many Malawians, especially in rural areas.

“Under the water and sanitation sector, we would like to salute the private sector, in particular, Pacific Limited which has upgraded and installed boreholes in almost all constituencies in the country”, said Chithyola.

Reacting to Chithyola’s remarks, Pacific Limited Managing Director, Faisal Aboo said he is overwhelmed with the government’s recognition of their efforts.

“To us, we don’t take it lightly that the government has noticed our efforts. We aim to see rural Malawians having access to potable water.

This we believe apart from preventing them from suffering water born diseases, it will go a long way in enhancing their productivity as they will no longer be required to travel long distances to access water”, said Faisal.

However, speaking in a separate interview parliamentarian for Dedza South, Ismail Onani has suggested that the government should consider finding ways of partnering with Pacific Limited in the provision of potable water.

The team leader for the Pacific Limited borehole rehabilitation initiative, Abdul Majeed has sighted the availability of borehole spare parts in the country which the company is required to import, and other logistics challenges mainly transportation for them to travel in rural areas to renovate the broken boreholes as some of the challenges requiring government partnership.

The Pacific Limited embarked on a free borehole rehabilitation initiative in 2015 as part of its corporate social responsibility and has to date renovated over 7,000 broken boreholes for free.
