VIDEO: Hunger force Citizens to break road in Sierra Leone to steal stones
A video that surfaced online has shown vandals in Sierra Leone breaking road to steal the stones to sell them.
The poster said in his tweet that hunger has forced many people to the criminal act. He said In Sierra Leone, vandals are now breaking roads to steal stones and sell them. People are blaming hunger, starvation, and unemployment for this criminal act.
Sierra Leone is currently facing an acute food shortage and more than 3 million Sierra Leoneans lack reliable access to adequate food. According to a report by the United Nations World Food Programme(WFP).
It is estimated that over 40% of Sierra Leone’s population is faced with food insecurity. Over 50% of Sierra Leone’s population lives on less than $1.25 per day, so many people struggle to buy sufficient and nutritious food. According to the 2019 Global Hunger Index, about one out of every four people in the country are undernourished. Nearly 40% of children suffer from stunted or impaired growth as a result of chronic malnutrition.
This case was further made worst by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic is putting more people at risk of hunger and starvation. According to the United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP), without sufficient aid, countries with high levels of food insecurity may face “mega-famines.”
The impending famine in Sierra Leone is made worst by the Irregular rainfall which has significantly affected rice production in West Africa country in recent years. Rice is a staple food in Sierra Leone, but local agricultural production is no longer sufficient to meet the needs of the population. In 2018, the Majority of the rice-growing farmers produced only half of what is needed for consumption.
The growing rate of hunger in Sierra Leone can permanently impact health and cognitive development. And also increase the crime rate as already noticed from the video.
