Residents at a long barracks on Oleander Street in Belize City are up in arms. They claim they were promised new homes by Minister Wilfred Elrington; however, when the new houses which were built right in front of their dilapidated houses, they were given to other persons. One disgruntled resident spoke with Love News.
Alexander Alpuche: “He came, like politicians do, he gave us promises and we are waiting. He told us that we were going to the ones to occupy the house that he is building now so as our representative I looked forward to that. So basically that is it, he stood us up, he already gave some other folks the key.”
We tried to reach Minister Elrington for a comment, but all attempts were unsuccessful.
