“We complained to the manager of the hotel but he failed to act and had to go to Area E Police Station to report.
“The police arrested some of the hotel’s staff but immediately released them, and from all indications efforts are being made to sweep the case under the carpet.
“We were encouraged to lodge our guests at the hotel because we thought it would be safe because of its proximity to Area E Police Station but we are dead wrong.”
Something should please be done
