BANGUI (LNC) – Ironically, we could go so far as to say that the Centrafrican capital is ecological. In the rainy season, Bangui turned to “BANGUI the SWIMMING-POOL”, and when as now, dry season is running, it is “BANGUI the DUST”. The only constant whatever one of the two seasons be, is “BANGUI the YUCKY!
In such a vast city, with anarchic cumulative of thousand populations, agglutinated in districts without land registry, and ceaselessly reinvented, the establishment of this considerable clean up of the city called “THE TOUMBA-ZENDE OPERATION“, at worst, is pure demagoguery, at best, just a sword strike into water. Because, completely cleaning a big city like Bangui, one of the nastiest and most unhealthy in Africa, by just using hoes and shovels. This must be done with industrial means that unfortunately CAR does not have.
WITHOUT MEANS THEY ARE TINKERING
It is not the fault of the Mayor of the city, oh sorry! of the President by special delegation of the city of Bangui (a fancy title meaning nothing), because the Maire of BANGUI, like for others cities in the country is not elected, as in use everywhere on the planet, but appointed by presidential decree. “THE TOUMBA-ZENDE OPERATION” could not be nothing else than a failure. One week ago on Saturday, the city redo the game! A workshop of cleaning in the 5th district (Bazanga & Sénégalais-M’Baidi), introduced by the Rwandan contingent from the MINUSCA, over there to share their experience from their country of “UMUGANDA”, or “LET’S BUILD TOGETHER”.
Inhabitants of these districts have been invited to join Rwandan to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in: by Weeding, cleaning out of a channel, sweeping markets, cleaning of a hospital etc. Mayor Emile Gros-Raymond Nakombo was part of it.
