KUWAIT CITY, April 2: A number of Kuwaiti citizens unanimously agreed that crimes, traffic congestions, lawbreaking and violations, inadequate medical care, shortage of security operatives and presence of bachelors in many residential areas are prevalent in varying degrees throughout the country, but it is unfortunate that all of these negative phenomena are widespread in Farwaniya Governorate, reports Al-Shahed daily.
According to Abdulaziz Al- Takhakh, the national identity is almost obliterated within that governorate, particularly places such as Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Khaitan and Farwaniya areas.
Those areas are strong indications of the demographic structure problem in the country, because majority of residents therein are expatriates. People are only hearing about solutions to problems like traffic congestion, bachelor presence and crimes but they have not seen any difference yet.
In his comment, Abdulaziz Shelash lamented that the governorate is suffering from serious traffic congestion especially during the school hours and during the start and end of working hours. He indicated that many accidents had occurred due to bad roads and sudden diversions, stressing, “We should wipe out marginal workers from our areas through impromptu security campaigns organized by Ministry of Interior from time to time. The fact that the population of expatriates outnumbers citizens within the governorate is a problem in itself.”
Another citizen Salama Al-Enezi corroborated his fellow compatriot, saying the source of problems in Farwaniya Governorate is the massive presence of marginal Asian workers, indicating that some of them are working but in an illegitimate manner.
He said, “There is a need for a new hospital with full medical, nursing, technical and administrative crew that can take care of large number of patients. This is especially important considering the efforts being exerted by Farwaniya Hospital to take care of residents of the governorate.” Al-Enezi also stressed the need to prevent heavy duty trucks from plying the roads all the time.
