Speaking on behalf of the aggrieved morticians, Richard said they were exposed to several diseases, as they were always in contact with the dead bodies and chemicals.
He said the government always dragged its feet each time they raised concerns in their line of work.
“The chemicals we use give us five different kinds of cancers, the government is aware of this situation. We are also at risk of blindness but nobody is addressing our challenges,’’ he stressed.
