  1. What about clean up of the Le Repentir cemetery! Its a crying shame where the leadership seems not to bother about the sorrying state of our cemetery. I recently returned home and I was appalled about what I see.

  2. disgusting. meanwhile in the pit stop of the caribbean, the mayor turn a residential area into a landfill.

  3. I was in that country back in 2014 and up to a day like today i’m still traumatized by the amount of garbage I saw everywhere (all over the capital, along the roadside driving from the airport, floating down the river, along the sea shore line, in every gutter/ drain in site).
