“Imagine going and closing from work like this… Buses and bikes refuse to ply this area so residents do not have a choice but to get in the water and walk home

“Having spoken to some of these people, they looked so tired and resigned to fate. Most of them are saving up so they can move out of this area to a more conducive, livable space. They no more have hope in the government, one of them said “my life is in my own hands.”
