Photos have emerged on social media showing drainage pouring through Strait Street in Valletta, Malta’s Capital City and one of the country’s key touristic sites.
Sewage has been spilling through the city’s historic streets on a daily basis.
It has been claimed, but as of yet unconfirmed, that the building spewing drainage onto the streets is government-owned.
This latest image follows a series of severe issues with litter and uncollected rubbish in key touristic hotspots, localities that are supposedly meant to cater for the over 2 million tourists who visit Malta every year.
So far, the Environment Minister has called an urgent meeting with the St Paul’s Bay local council to address the massive litter problem in the area, while the cleansing department has embarked on cleaning projects in the area. However, problems of this sort are still present, especially with other areas are being seemingly ignored.
Valletta’s Local Council have been contacted and should now be looking into the problem.
