In my previous post, titled “WHY THIS BLOG”, I raised an issue on how government officials are neglecting some of the issues that concerns the healthy of the citizens.And in the post I described it as an act of taking “healthy” for granted.
Early this month ,people in southern region of Malawi were in danger following the sewage disposal by the lodges operating near this river.
Citizens who are operating in the areas close to this river have lately been complaining, about this situation arguing that the river is the only source of water in their community, .which means that diarrhea and all kinds of water born diseases which these families were experiencing were there because of contaminated water sourced from this river .
The government officials in relation with the director of the two lodges engaged in a dialog through a meeting which can be described as “unsuccessful”, because they did not coming up with solutions their were pointing fingers at each other neglecting the problem at hand .
The director of the two lodges Abdul Munaf argued that government officials just wanted to gain political mileage over his business by demanding papers from the Malawi Bureau of Standards.
In the end the solutions to the water issue was delayed which caused many people to suffer.
