Re: An invitation to experience garbage burning....

Subsequent to my two emails to NEMA and other officialdom, again, last Saturday (see below), I got the following response from one of my recipients who is a doctor. I think, that and my emails speak for themselves....

Yet, nothing is being done. Why?

This is such a serious matter with disastrous consequences for our health, affecting so many of us so much of the time, that on this kind of smoke and noise pollution, on our roads, around our our homes and in our neighbourhoods, there should be serious action taken to assist Raziya and her neighbours as well as so many of us in similar situations. Smoking lorries and vehicles are another big preventable cause of pollution (we had one in front of us yesterday for much of the way), as is noise.

NEEMA does nothing for the common mwananchi. You can complain till kingdom come for all they care!!!

Yes, you're right. But, by writing about it, helps in two ways - One, I manage to get it out of my system for the time being and two, I create a record in NEMA's offices and the public's that such things are happening and that NEMA has yet to respond.

That is also why I have a blog...
