The complaint
Norma Medina, the leader of the colony, commented that they have a water pump that has already more than a week not working, since that works with electric power and staff of the CFE and Jumapam, do not agree to solve the problem.
«Those in the light, they blame the water and vice versa, but while they are fighting, they are the ones who are affecting us, because we do not have water for the most indispensable thing that is to drink, we have to buy water and the economy is not really to be spending on something that is obligatory to have, because the payment receipts come to the order of the day, but there is no water,» he said. Neighbors positioned themselves at the entrance of the split and did not let the cars leave, also a row of urban trucks originated because they did not allow them to climb a passage.
