Salima Blue Waters Hotel fined MK5 Million for suspected discharge of fecal matter into Lake Malawi.

If you have been at Blue Waters Hotel in Salima and have used their toilets before , begin to imagine that all your fecal matter may have ended up in the fresh waters of Lake Malawi. Probably next day you spent the whole day swimming in the Lake.

Besides the fine, Malawi Environmental Protection Authority (MEPA) on Friday ordered the hotel to rectify all issues. MEPA discovered leakages and other shortcomings with the entire wastewater management system and concluded it is not fit for purpose.

Samples were collected and further tests will be done to determine water quality levels.

MEPA also inspected other hotels within the district. They are doing this as part of their routine inspection exercises.

Good but not good enough. They should have closed this place, the have no better standing to continue with business in this country. Very embarrassing.
