Residents of Ciceron are lamenting the failure of the island’s lone electricity company to repair a faulty street lamp in the community which they believe could have served as a deterrent for the latest act of violence there.
A 22 year old man, Yan Louisy better known as yellow was gunned down by 3 masked men on April 28th in Monkey town. He was shot inside a shop near his home. Resident’s in the area believe the shooting could have been prevented if the perpetrators did not have the cover of darkness under which they had ambushed the area.
The shop owner who has only been identified as Ingrid says residents have been pleading with St.Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) to fix the light for months.
Ingrid says she doesn’t agree with other residents who believe the light hasn’t been fixed because of political reasons.
One week after the murder, Ingrid expressed her disappointment that the light still hasn’t been fixed, during an update interview with RCI news.
Residents say it has been two weeks since LUCELEC started fixing its infrastructure in the area expect that one street light.
