For us domesticated Americans, so many things are taken for granted; Housing, transportation, clean water, etc. For the poor locals of Zambia, Africa, none of this is true. There, poor grandmothers live in caves excavated by their children while in search of blood diamonds. Food is so scarce that some have reportedly lived on tree bark alone for months until dying horrible painful deaths. What the locals in Africa could always rely on, however, was fresh clean water.
The tallest mountain in Zambia, mount Killehewah, flows with the clean and pure waters generated by snow high above the rest of the country. When Trump opened his bow-tie production factory it required a stable source of power, and the flowing water of mount Killehewah fulfilled all those needs. But after four short years of production the clear waters of the mountain turned a rusty red color.
“The [water] changes colors according to the production cycle of the company”, an anonymous local reporter explained to us, “in the winter the water turns blue”. Chemical laced water is still consumed by locals in massive quantities, as there is simply no alternative available.
When contacted for comment, one Trump official claimed there were no adverse effects to the water, and that the color change was as harmless as food coloring. “Tomatoes are red”, the official is quoted as saying, ”Are you afraid to eat tomatoes? If anything the water in Zambia is better after it flows through our factory, because the machinery actually deposits a small amount of iron into the water, which is known to be an important vitamin for healthy people”.
Scientists at UC Berkely, however, petitioned these comments when they were brought a sample of the water for testing. “This water has so much iron that it would cause death to an average person within a year, but due to the algae it contains, the effects are actually prolonged for up to three years”, commented the head of the Lab in Fresno California. “The algae actually grows inside of the person who drinks the water, and consumes 30% of the iron. In this way, the water has become its own living organism”. Scientists continue to test the water for responses to stimuli such as light, but clearly there something wrong with this situation.
