Chambeshi Water Signs Debt Collection Deal with Cashwell

Chambeshi Water and Sewerage Company has signed a contract with Cashwell Debt Collectors to help them recover over K25 million from its defaulting customers.

Company managing director Luckson Simumba said the water utility is owed over K25 million by different institutions, including government.

He said the company had failed to collect the debts to help run operations which had resulted in them failing to meet the mandate in service delivery.

Simumba said the company was owed by both commercial and domestic customers in Muchinga and Northern Provinces.

“We have been failing in our mandate due to the huge amounts of money both our domestic and commercial companies owe us amounting to over K 25 million. With this money, we can do a lot. Once this money is collected, it will help us expand our operations in both serviced and un-serviced areas within our jurisdiction,” Simumba said.

And Cashwell Debt Collector administration manager Liberty Manyau assured the utility that the organization will ensure that debts are collected and remitted to Chambeshi Water and Sewerage Company.

Manyau said the debt collection exercise would start from Kasama and move to Mpika, Nakonde and Mbala within six months before extending to other areas under the Company’s jurisdiction.

    Chambeshi billing system and supply of water is very poor.You find some homes what as a crude is the service fee ,without water bills because they don’t supply water ,sometimes the give you a fixed charge while you have a metre in Mpika they have removed the old metre reading boxes and added to the near metre readings without explaining the curried forward bills ,
    While at connecting the ask you to pay for material which they don’t buy,in end they ask you to buy material and promise to refund material which they don’t.

    That is why we say this country has been robbed of high caliber managers like Mwansa Rabinson of Zesco then. That man with his team came up with a 50/50 attractive idea and system that helped Zesco to recover debt without subjecting poor Zambians to such harsh conditions as Chambeshi is proposing. Even if you are dull, you can copy from your friend in class and pass not aba bambuli. What do you think your hired friend and would be sharer in spoils will do to poor Zambians in his quest to get his cut? Fimo mulebomfya imitwe. Zesco also introduced prepaid system from which they were recovering a percentage of debt while receiving money for operations and I believe no domestic household no matter how poor in Zambia is owing Zesco. The only problem now is that despite all the good intentions of the past managers, today Zesco appears not to know whether they are going or coming due to cadre management and foolish politicians using the company as if it is their kantemba.
