Dear Editor,

 

I was in the newly commissioned Kunta Kinteh ferry and have observed that some life Jackets have gone missing. Look at the attached pictures. The authorities have started looting some of the assets meant to save lives of the passengers boarding the ferry.

They have started selling them to the local Fishermen. This is gross malpractice, it should stop immediately. The director general at the ports should look into this. Right now, the Kanalai ferry has almost no life vests.

Take a look at the opposite side where the life jackets are, it’s almost empty. The ferry is just less than a month.
