Colombia denounces delay in San Andrés reconstruction.

Bogota, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) Many colombians are today focusing on the unfulfilled promises of the Ivan Duque's government for the reconstruction of San Andres and Providencia, an island department hit by Hurricane Iota 200 days ago.

Do you remember the reconstruction of San Andres in 100 days promised by Duque? Well, today after seven months, according to the Comptroller’s Office, there are only two new houses built out of the 1,074 promised and the hospital is still a campaign hospital, denounced the Movimiento Alternativo Indígena Social (Alternative Indigenous and Social Movement).

For his part, the Green Alliance congressman Antonio Sanguino commented that, for this reason, his proposal was approved yesterday for the Second Commission of the Senate to allow the citizens of San Andres, doubly affected by Hurricane Iota and the negligence of the national government, to be heard.

Hurricane Iota was the most intense hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, with category five, the highest on the Saffir-Simpson scale. It caused severe damage in areas of Central America and the northern coast of Colombia that had already been devastated by Hurricane Eta just two weeks earlier.

President Duque, who on Monday afternoon, November 16, arrived in Providencia, the departmental capital, to manage humanitarian aid to the victims, promised that his government would take charge of the reconstruction and delivery of housing to the victims.
