Organized by Chartered Institute of Customer Management (CICM), the annual awards are set to recognize the country’s corporate and public institutions for their efforts in service delivery.

LWB has been nominated for Public Sector category alongside Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (Macra), Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera), Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) and Malawi Postal Corporations.

The nomination for Lilongwe Water Board comes barely six months after winning the Water Service Provider of the Year (2019) award during the sixth edition of African Utility Week Industry Awards that took place in Cape Town, South Africa.

CICM’s head of marketing, Albert Bhero said about 200 delegates are expected to patronize the 5th edition of the awards which he said was conceptualized to recognize service excellence.

“The awards will help to promote call centre industry development which is key for job creation in Africa,” he said.

Lilongwe Water Board is one of the nominees due to innovative strides it has made in the past two years in improving delivery of water services in Lilongwe City.

Between 2017 and 2019, LWB has launched various initiatives to modernize service delivery such as state-of-the-art 24/7 Customer Call-Centre; hydraulic model; prepaid metering system; new billing system with customer interface, among others.
