- It was reported that the neighborhoods in Frontera Comalapa did not have a water supply for a week.
Politicians failing to fulfill their promises is definitely nothing new. At most, what the people can do is to simply not vote for them on the next elections. But these angry residents of a southern Mexican state took matters into their own hands – they confronted the mayor and tied him to a tree.
Mayor Óscar Ramírez was presenting his series of public projects for the residents of the city of Frontera Comalapa in the state of Chiapas. Improvements to the water system was among his campaign promises.
During a meeting with representatives from the town’s communities, Ramírez was questioned about the poor state of the water system after he unveiled a new water tank. Residents alleged that the tank was broken down and had holes that were just patched up using cement.
One of the community leaders climbed down into the tank and scrapped the surface to show how it was covered with cement to keep the water from leaking out.
A resident said: “He promised us that it would be a decent work for the people of Comalapa, but it was all a sham because the water system does not work well.”
“It is a long-standing problem that must be dealt with properly and that must be a priority in this [term], because he came to see us at our houses with that promise and now he does not want to comply.”
It was reported that the neighborhoods in Frontera Comalapa, which is a rural city that sits across the border from Guatemala, did not have water supply for a week.
The representatives then forced the mayor to stand beside a tree, where he was tied with his hands behind his back. He was photographed in this condition and he was wearing a face mask.
But Ramírez denied that he was tied to the tree despite the photos uploaded online. He spoke in a video trying to downplay the incident.
“They did not tie me down. The meeting was with eleven representatives of neighborhoods of the municipal seat of Comalapa to agree on details of a high-impact work, the introduction of drinking water,” the mayor said.
