There is another way to write this story
and it reads like this:

Bwoy, i know the effects will be felt across Kingston and St. Andrew, but why the people who live near or in the dump nuh get mentioned til the last line?
I not faulting the reporter, me nah seh every report must start and end wid ‘on behalf of poor people’
it just mek me sad seh people really a live under dem conditions yah still
three times di accepted level enuh. and people live right round di dump
and the asthma case dem a increase
but wah bout di pickney dem weh nuh come a hospital because dem parents cyaan even afford bus fare or di medication
i bet if we tek a trip out deh di numbers a go change up rapidly
wah we a go do fi yu? fi weself
