Mitchell, who led a government delegation to the health facility on Monday, has given the workers the assurance that a sewage problem affecting them is being resolved.
He said while he had no problem with the health workers staging protest action after persistently complaining about the stench from the sewage system of a nearby housing project, he conceded that the problem should have been resolved earlier and that workers ought not to have gone the route of demonstrating before they are heard.
“I am deeply concerned and disappointed that the system took so long to resolve this,” Prime Minister Mitchell said, adding “I have given instructions and expect that this should be followed.”
He asked the workers to “take him on personally” if the matter is not solved.
A government statement noted that the National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) has been instructed to take over the management of sewage systems in all government housing developments including Mt. Rush and Soubise.
NAWASA manager, Christopher Husbands, said that all projects are being reviewed to ensure that the systems are upgraded.
“We have started with Mt. Gay and Soubise but reviewing all the other projects to ensure that the systems are upgraded. A joint team has done a review. They are finalizing plans to replace clogged system. The current one is clogged,” he said.
