h2 (Life in the capital Conakry and Guinea.)
After the death of President Lansana Conte in December 2008, democratic elections. This involved a lot of unrest and conflict between
presidential candidates. Finally in December 2010 named Alpha Conde.
He has promised the state of the population, but it takes a long time before anything happens. All cases have urgently!
Nowhere is constant electricity. Marijke when it was in December there would be one day flow from 18:00 to 24:00 the following day from 24.00 to 06.00 hours. Usually it was not.
In most areas water is irregular. It's really not good for your health as you are in a dirty, dusty city living and you can not wash.
What would be good for the country as the roads improved. Not only in Conakry, but also inland. It takes hours to get somewhere and the car trouble and bad roads cause many accidents.
h3 (Sewage and garbage.)
There are still open sewers, where everything is thrown. Where do you keep your waste (almost) nothing is retrieved? Burn and not always successful?.
If food is your biggest concern, nothing is left for household maintenance. The landlords often live on the rent and have no money for repairs. During the rainy season is even more difficult.
Of your insurance to pay a little money can not. And a doctor can not treat for free! He must also live.
Also pay school fees. And a school uniform! And do not forget the mandatory closed-toe shoes. If you always walk in flip-flops are your feet after too wide to fit into shoes. And a good job hear shoes!
Last but not least. The greatest misery caused by unemployment. The majority of the population is unemployed and wanders some money with small trades and jobs for one day. Especially with the women on the market vegetables, clothing, eggs, fruit, rice, used clothes, etc. etc. etc. etc. sell the evenings to eat.
