More white elephants
I penned a missive some time back constructively criticising the Wakenaam airstrip which was constructed to the tune of some $54.4M. To date the said airstrip is still not functional and it hurts me as a taxpayer to know that my money was spent wastefully.
I have cried over and over for a more state of the art hospital on the island, better roads, improved schools, better health centres and a better electric plant for the island. All my tears have fallen on deaf ears.
I am going to cry again editor but this time for a play field for the residents of Maria’s Pleasure, Free and Easy, Wakenaam. These villages have in excess of 160 young people who have nothing much to do during their leisure time and posses skills that are ready to be unleashed. Failing to heed this plead may result in our country losing more young people to drugs and alcohol.
I am begging you, Mr. President, please help our youths.
