A fire in one of the capital cities oldest districts resulted in at least 67 deaths. The overcrowded and often illegal shopping and residential streets in this district made it difficult for fire fighters to reach the fire. The government says that while it has made new zoning laws and regulations, residents in these older parts of the city have resisted change and frequently bribe officials to overlook the illegalities. Pray for corruption to be uprooted and for greater commitment to improving and developing the safety and welfare of city dwellers (The Bible, Ezekiel 18:9).
