In Sierra Leone, Youyi Building Stinks

One of the countrys important administrative buildings, the historic Youyi Building at Brookfields, west of the capital, which houses most of the government ministries has lately become an eye-sore  much to the embarrassment of Ministers, government officials and their numerous visitors as offensive stench pervades the entire building.

 

According to sources, the entire building has been without water supply for over one week following a disconnection effected by the Guma Valley Water Company (GVWC) for governments failure to meet its financial obligation for a long period of time running into millions of Leones.

 

When this press contacted the Distribution Engineer at GVWC, Prince Moore-Sourie on the issue, he confirmed disconnecting the entire Youyi Building for governments failure to honour its bills. According to the Distribution Engineer, The entire Youyi Building is going to be without water supply until government honours the huge bill it has accrued all this while. 

The young and cultured engineer also estimated that the water that the Youyi Building alone consumes can supply half of the Brookfields community.

 

While the people of Brookfields suffer from inadequate water supply, the Youyi Building swims in water but they dont want to pay for the essential service, Moore-Sourie stated.

 

It is not yet known whether or not the authorities in charge have addressed the situation to save very important personalities especially foreign visitors from further embarrassment, but by the look of things, it appears this discomfiture will take a while.
