As the Continental Region is the largest part of the country, the Parliament considered it appropriate to move to the city of Bata to carry out its activities within the Second Ordinary Period of Parliamentary Sessions, with the aim of supporting its dwellers through interactive meetings between the people’s representatives and the electorate. For that reason, the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, met Senators on 19th September to cover issues affecting those people.
Issues such as the lack of water supply in the city of Bata, a situation which affects the population to a large extent, and which has reached the Palace of International Congresses and Conferences in Ngolo, the provisional headquarters of the Senate in the city of Bata, where despite the precarious situation recorded for over five days, the senators have been working with a will as representatives of the people.
Despite the efforts of the Head of State and Government, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, to implement projects involving the investment of millions in order to have water throughout the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, in Bata there are still deficiencies in the supply. For that reason, the Senate has been looking at the problem, and Efua Asangono has expressed concern regarding the use of wells, which could bring epidemics such as cholera or dysentery.
The Senate recommended to senators to double their efforts and support other bodies in order to find viable solutions to these problems.
