Venezuelans in the coastal state of Vargas said on Wednesday, March 13, that they had been without water for a month and spend their days queueing at a water plant to fill up containers.
The lack of water has become one of the most severe results of the nationwide blackout. President Nicolas Maduro has claimed the chaos is a result of U.S.-backed sabotage, but his critics call it the product of his government’s corruption and incompetence.
In Caracas, Venezuelans from working-class neighborhoods to upscale apartment towers are complaining the uncertainty of water and electricity means increasingly infrequent showers, unwashed dishes and stinking toilets. (Reuters)
