Some time ago I handed over a letter addressed to the Kaduwela Urban Council chairman, requesting that garbage collection happens more than once a week. I also requested that garbage be collected on specified days, otherwise the bags of rubbish remain outside our homes for days and the contents spill out and attract vermin and encourage bacteria growth.
When I handed over the letter to the Kaduwela Urban Council chairman’s so-called secretary, the woman had the impertinence to tear up my letter in front of me, forgetting that she was a servant of the state, whose wages were funded by rate-payers like myself. Such staff only bring disgrace to government institutions, such as the Kaduwela Urban Council.
Meanwhile, nothing has changed. Garbage continues to rot in the streets of Kaduwela and Malabe, and when the garbage collectors will come is anyone’s guess.
We residents who live along the by-roads of Sudarshana Mawatha, Malabe, hope the chairman of the Kaduwela Urban Council will get down to the job of properly serving the people of his area.
