Tetovo’s new mayor puts up billboards of city’s debt


Newly elected Tetovo Mayor Bilal Kasami put up billboards with the total sum that the city was in debt when he was elected. Kasami blames his predecessor DUI’s Teuta Arifi for grossly mismanaging the city, leaving him with over 24 million EUR in debt.

Arifi was famous for hiring her extensive family members and friends and paying them absurdly high salaries often months in advance.

The sum will also be displayed on a monitor on the main city square. Kasami took over from Arifi after her two terms in office.
