Striking Mombo Council workers liaise with locals to force council to do its job

Striking Workers of the Mombo council, a locality situated in the Moungo Division of the Littoral region have joint hands with the local population to pressurize the council to pay their arrears and to provide basic amenities to the community.
Ever since the former mayor of Mombo was captured and put behind bars for charges of embezzlement, life has not been the same again in the Mombo community.
“I have been working without payment. I am in the house now with the child and there is no way for me to feed. My husband is not even around and now that the mayor has gone, there are too many problems” says a disgruntled female council worker. She carries on her placard the inscription “SG must go”.


“If things are not good for the council workers, the whole community will suffer because they are to us like leaders” says an angry critic.
Some inhabitants hinted that electricity and portable water has been the problems in the Mombo council area for some time now as the community sometimes go for weeks without these basic social amenities. “We prefer not to have electricity but not water” says a local inhabitant. “My neighbor who just put to birth and nearly died because there was no water” he adds.
Some inhabitants have it that money that is meant to develop the community is being misused by council officials.
“I don’t know who collects the money but I know that it’s the council that misuses income collected from us” says another angry local.
