Mr Stromborn, me only go from what me read from dat pot solt TK. Hughes is a good man but he na seh how he mattie peopkle will not face de same fate of the problem like the fuss village movement after emancipation. Somebady gat to pay for de drainage and infrastructure. Dem village cyant generate dem own tax revenue. De tax pool from coolie and blackman and all other man gat to mix up and de central govt gat to do de drainage and infrastructure. Is de same reason de colonial govt had to step in and tek over de drainage by de 1870s.
