The Lusaka Water Supply and Sanitation Company has encouraged its customers and the general public to use electronic payment (e-payment) platforms to pay for their water bills in a bid to complement government efforts of mitigating the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Company has further advised customers to minimize walking into customer service centres dotted around the City.

Nshamba Muzungu, the Company Public Relations Officer said customers are instead advised to call the customer service centers for any queries or complaints and utilize e-payment. Mr Muzungu said the company recognizes that basic water and sanitation services are important to overall health.

He assured customers that the company will take all measures possible to protect the public and its staff members from any exposure to the virus that would arise from interaction with our services.
