La Paille Residents Fear Caroni Disaster

RESIDENTS of La Paille Village in Caroni are calling for the Ministry of Works and Transport to urgently address their serious concerns about the threat posed by the watercourse to people who live nearby.

They staged a protest with placards on the left bank of the nation’s main rivers on Tuesday to highlight fears that their property is in peril anytime it rains.

Resident Kasho Ganpat said that although officials have made site visits to assess the danger the river poses but nothing has been done.
