Bottled water in Zimbabwe
The Zim government has banned 40 water bottling firms after testing the water. 9 other water bottling firms passed the tests and have been certified. This is separate to the Standards Association of Zimbabwe, which has certified 12 bottled water firms. This all seems like a good thing - testing water and protecting consumers - if somewhat confusing but the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare has also refused to name the 9 bottlers who are allowed to produce bottled water. Is it just me or is there something wrong with that logic?
