KUWAIT, State Minister for Housing and Services Jenan Bushehri announced Monday forming several technical teams to estimate damage in infrastructure of Sabah Al-Ahmad’s City due to the recent flash floods and heavy rains.
In a press statement, Minister Bushehri said the teams will inspect all the district sectors to determine the damage caused by the downpours, in addition to inspecting the work performed by companies with contracts with the ministry and present a report in one week.
The ministry has been working closely with the Ministry of Public Works to determine all causes of the damage to file a report to the fact finding committee, formed by Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Hussam Al-Roumi.
Minister Bushehri affirmed giving the fact finding committee all the support needed to find any kind of shortcoming, pointing out that any defaulting civil servant would be held accountable.
There could not be any complacency in the rights of citizens, and endangering their lives due to lack of competence by the companies that built the district infrastructure, she warns.
She has thanked all government institutions that have been working round the clock in the last few days to repair the damage.
