Dear Dr Ibrahim,
In response to a letter signed by M Tripoli, showing a picture of a beach in Tripoli full of rubbish, I was very sad to see this sort of thing on any part of our beaches but it’s even worse to see it in the heart of our capital, Tripoli. I can’t see any reason for this. What about all the problems this will lead to; health, environmental, economic etc? The only explanation in my opinion is the lack of responsibility of those who are supposed to be responsible and in charge of running the country. I don’t think it’s right to carry on blaming every thing on Gadaffi and it’s time for every Libyan and especially those in the peoples’ committees to take and share the responsibility, and I believe showing a picture like this (by M Tripoli) is a first step towards taking such responsibility.
Some of you will say this is not the only problem in the country? And there are a lot of other very sad stories. I agree, and I also agree every thing matters and if we ignore what we think as minor problems, we will not bother with the major issues, reminding me with the English saying “Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves”
In the General Peoples’ Congress’s budget Meeting last week we were told that there is enough money, funding not a problem and the main problem is planning, or the lack of it!
Isn’t it time now for all the Libyans and especially decision makers to take more responsibility, fear Allah and be more civilised??
