Residents at Fiji Kunda Dumus in the Kanifing Municipality have complained to Foroyaa regarding the continuous flooding that threatens their homes and surroundings causing them untold challenges regarding their movements and living conditions among others.
These residents who were speaking at different locations and homes when visited, said the flood affects them, both during and after the rainy season.
Musouba Tamba said that during the rainy season the waters flooded their bedrooms, bath rooms, etc causing extensive damages to buildings and personal belongings. This obstructed them from performing their domestic chores; adding that it also increased the rate of malaria cases in the area because of mosquito infestations. She further explained that during the rainy season things are worsened by the erosion which transforms the streets into gullies that make them unmemorable during the dry season. She finally appealed to the authorities and NGOs to help in the building of their streets to ease their problems.
Mariama Sanyang also speaking at her home expressed similar sentiments.
Speaking on behalf of a group of youths, Ousman Mendy and Abdoulie Sanneh expressed concerns regarding the health and well-being of people living in the area. They all lamented the poor environmental sanitation and called for help to end the environmental degradation.
