ALL ANNE BROWNE wants is for her elderly and ailing mother to live out the rest of her years in dignity.
At 91 years old, Ernesta Browne has never had the luxury of running water at her house. The family live at Dash Valley, St George, in an area which is considered a water zone and they have not been allowed to instal water on the property.
On a daily basis Anne collects buckets of water from her identical twin sister Peggy, who lives next door but who, surprisingly, has water connected to her house.
However, Anne, 51, is now at her wits’ end since health inspectors have ordered her not to dig any more outdoor toilet pits on the land even though the one she now uses is full. (MB)
