PHOTOS: RESIDENTS SERVE DIRTY WATER TO POLITICIANS AFTER THEY FAILED TO PROVIDE POTABLE WATER
Residents of a village in Kenya decided to give Kenyan
politicians a taste of their own medicine so they served them
Marsabit county residents, during a scheduled meeting with their
leaders on Tuesday, February 12, served muddy drinking water
as refreshment to the politicians who failed to provide potable
water for them.
The dignitaries were comfortably seated on plastic chairs for the
meeting with residents of Karare ward when Karare Ward women
stepped out and served the political and administrative leaders
who were in attendance bottled muddy water.
The politicians tried to pretend they didn’t see the water and
continued chatting with one another. But their bottled muddy
water was carefully placed on the ground beside them.
The residents of Karare area were angered that their leaders had
failed to come up with a solution to their perennial water
problem. The water the villagers use for cooking, drinking and
cleaning is contaminated and completely unfit for human
consumption and they wanted to give their leaders a rare chance
to see the kind of life they live.
