UNICEF challenges ability of Djiboutian government

According to UNICEF, five water trucks have been rented from the Government and UNICEF will use the vehicles to deliver water to 35 selected areas that do not have reliable access to safe water. The agency is also providing repair and maintenance equipment for wells and boreholes.

The project is just for 75-days operation to provide thousands of Djiboutians with safe drinking water, but in reality, it’s to misappropriate funding without specifically providing the number of people that project would benefit.

It is an utter disgrace to Djiboutian government that UNICEF publishes such damning report about the host nation,  UNICEF not only claims that the government of the day in Djibouti has neglected to properly maintain  equipment for wells and boreholes, but also the same agency has explicitly mentioned ethically corrupt practices of the government.

Naturally, one would ask himself or herself what kind of government would lease its public water tankers to an opportunistic UN agency in times of dire need for just quick profit.

UNICEF’s press release have coincided the harsh but lucid verdict of the African Development Bank which considers Djibouti as “Fragile State” that must improve considerably its public management.
