Why aren’t the northern people protesting over rising prices and shortages of essential items? The answer: Economic hardships are not new to them.
When the war was raging in the Northern Province just over a decade ago, electricity was a luxury for many families in the region.
To survive and overcome life’s difficulties, people were forced to look for alternatives and innovative techniques during the war.
When the war ended, bringing in its wake normality, a change in lifestyle and development activities in the region, the northern people would not have imagined that they would be undergoing similar difficulties and have to adopt the same tactics once again–this time due to the Government’s mismanagement of the economy.
