Esworth Martin, the General Manager of Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), is departing from his role ahead of schedule.
The Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Gaston Browne, has requested Martin to take pre-retirement leave immediately, contrary to the initially planned year-end retirement.
The decision aligns with the Cabinet’s commitment to uphold high standards for APUA managers, mirroring those expected of elected officials.
Despite prior announcements, frustration has arisen among consumers facing prolonged water shortages.
PM Browne, dissatisfied with APUA’s performance despite significant investments, remains steadfast in the decision for Martin to leave promptly.
