Another of our sad old buildings. This one in Point Road. Someone mentioned it was one of the hijacked buildings.
This is where the tenants stop paying rental to the owners, and the building just deteriorates until it is uninhabitable, but people still live there. This makes it a dangerous place to be.

On the other hand they have now introduced the law that requires everyone residing in the country to be correctly registered and accounted for. If they get this right, it could significantly reduce crime, and get rid of many of the foreigners who often seem to be at the center drug rings and hijacked buildings.
