According to him, “First of all, I am really disappointed with what I saw today. The residents see environmental hours as time to rest at home.

“I discover that from the 7am to 10am, the commercial shops and their homes, most of them were locked. Just 5minutes after 10am, you see all shops reopened for the day’s activities leaving their environment dirty.”
