He said: “We want to make it very clear that this would not be good for us, for two reasons. The number one reason is that most of us in this neighborhood, our source of water is through borehole, so if we have an infectious disease cemetery around us we are not safe.

“We want the government to rethink and have a change of mind on this. Number two reason is on the issue of the COVID-19 that we are all facing right now, nobody knows the full details of this disease. Bringing it close to us would be creating additional problems in the future.”
