In February 2013, the Japanese government helped install clean-water taps across Kambia, Sierra Leone. But two months later, the new taps were all turned off, forcing residents to return to wells, that by then, were no longer sanitized. In my role as a JHR trainer, I headed to Kambia in May 2013 with Africa Young Voices reporter Diana Coker to find out why. This is her radio report – voiced in the Sierra Leonean Krio (Creole) language.
(A few weeks after this item ran on AYV Radio, the council turned the taps back on).
