Thyolo Parliamentarians call for Pacific Limited’s borehole rehabilitation support

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The Parliamentarians for Thyolo Central, Ben Phiri and his counterpart Mavuto Sandram Scott of Thyolo South constituency have appealed for support from Pacific Limited to help in repairing broken boreholes in their respective areas.

The lawmakers told The Maravi Post in separate interviews that the majority of boreholes in their areas broke down some time back a development that has been forcing people in their areas to walk long distances to fetch water.

“You know we are required to use only about ten percent of our Constituency Development Fund (CDF ) to carry out some borehole repairers in our areas. This is quite a smaller location as we are also required to construct some new boreholes with the same amount”, said Scott.

Echoed the same, Phiri said the situation has forced the majority of people in his area to draw water from unprotected sources thereby exposing themselves to various waterborne diseases.

Their remarks come against the background of continued efforts by the Pacific group of companies to rehabilitate broken boreholes across the country for free as part of its corporate social responsibility.

Meanwhile, Managing Director for Pacific Limited Faisal Aboo has vowed to look into the lawn makers’ concerns as it fulfills its commitment across Malawi.

Currently Pacific Limited is maintaining broken boreholes in Nsanje Lalanje and Zomba Likangala constituencies after spending the entire part of 2013 2023 in the central region doing the same.

The Pacific Limited borehole rehabilitation project was launched in 2015 and so far it has rehabilitated over 7000 boreholes for free as part of its corporate social responsibility.
