Shambles in Rabat
I wonder how many pedestrians passing through Gusmana Navarra Street, Rabat, have ever noticed that, while the street is named after the baroness who contributed to the building of St Paul's Church in the same locality, Alley No. 1 in the same street is named after "Gusman" Navarra. Can anybody explain what was the relationship between "Gusman" and Gusmana - husband, brother, son or partner?
On a different line, one would ask why the public passageway (zuntier) linking Gusmana Navarra Street with the parish square is covered in puddles, holes and weeds? One would have expected that a decent facelift, particularly in this Pauline Year. And can anybody explain why the parish square, after four months since the works started, is still in shambles?
The citizens of Rabat would surely expect plausible explanations from the local council or appropriate authorities.
