A citizen reporter, Ibrahim Mansur, has posted photos of what appears like ‘kunu’ (a kind of gruel) running from taps in Zamfara State.

In April, Governor Abdulaziz Yari came under fire for blaming fornication for the outbreak of meningitis. Zamfara State has the highest death toll of 215.

Writing on his Facebook timeline, Mr Mansur, said: “This is the kind of potable water the government is supplying to the masses despite the huge amount it receives from the federal government.”

Also commenting on the photos, another Facebook user Mansur Isah Buhari mockingly said: “In preparation for Ramadan, Zamfara people will only need to turn on the tap during iftar for hot Ovaltine to break their fast? I hear that there’s even an option for hot or cold. Eehhhn! Zamfara Governor is working. I’m relocating to Zamfara.”

Commenters also argue that another disease outbreak would occur if government would be pumping contaminated water to taps for drinking.
