The hospitals don't have the basic equipments and medications to treat routine emergencies never mind serious life threatening cases.

Government employees don't receive their salaries on a regular basis.

The financial elite is behind such practices since they are in collusion with the government.

When the employees are net getting paid they are forced to borrow monies at exorbitant rate from the financial elite
Most of the government offices, schools don't have toilet facilities and employees as well as client are compelled to use the backyard or the streets outside of the office as substitute to public toilets to relieve themselves.
