'They will f*ck up': Company involved in Flint water crisis bids to serve largest city in Africa

Activists are concerned that Veolia, the company linked with the Flint, Michigan water crisis, is on the shortlist to manage two-thirds of water system in Lagos, Nigeria, where many children die from water-borne diseases.
"I feel Veolia is a snake, and they slithered over to Lagos to try to increase their profit margins," Nayyirah Shariff, director at Flint Rising activist group, told BuzzFeed News. "They have a history of poisoning black communities in the US, and they should not be poisoning the largest African city on the continent."

The campaigner said she was "shocked and extremely angry" when she found out that the French-owned water management company is among the three bidders for the Adiyan II project in the Nigerian capital, Lagos, which is the seventh largest city in the world.
