PM: Authorities looking into WSC contracts

While insisting that he will not interfere, Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis said yesterday that authorities are looking into questionable contracts issued by the Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC).

“Well, I know it’s being looked at,” Davis said. 

“I don’t know where it is because I don’t want to interfere. The information is in the public domain. We expect those who have responsibility to their work to do their work. Where it is, I don’t know.”

He said there is “sufficient information” in the public domain to warrant an investigation.

Davis said those “who know what they have to do ought to just do what they have to do”.

“I’m not going to interfere,” he said.

“If they’re not doing it, then they must have some reasons why and I guess at some point in time, they’ll be called to account for that.”

While he was executive chairman of WSC, Adrian Gibson, the Long Island MP, came under fire in the lead-up to last month’s general election, after it was revealed that WSC awarded a three-year $4,700 per month cleaning and maintenance contract to a company whose director had the same name as a woman Gibson identified as his fiancée.

While Gibson issued a statement on the matter, he failed to say whether Alexandria Mackey, who signed the WSC contract on behalf of Elite Maintenance, was the same Alexandria Mackey he identified as his fiancée in a 2020 police report.

While in opposition, Davis called on the attorney general and commissioner of police to immediately launch an investigation into the matter.
