The Assembly Member for the area Hon Kwadwo Boateng in an interview with Silver 98.3 FM made the accusation when he paid a working visit to both Communities.
Hon. Boateng lamented that the destruction of the pipes had frustrated efforts toward effective water supply and also affected workers in the community.
“Our taps were flowing and were enjoying until the contractor (Kofi Job) started his work. In the beginning, he was repairing each and every tap his machines damaged. We’ve not had water for the past two weeks because the main tap that supply us water has been damaged by his machines.” Hon. Boateng lamented.
“We are pleading with Kofi Job to come and fix the main tap for us so that we will get water to service our needs especially in these times of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.” He continued.
Some of the residents suggested that the contractor should have relocated its pipes to protect them from destruction so that the community would not suffer.
“We are very grateful to President Nana Addo for the construction of our road but we’ve not had water for two weeks so we are appealing to him to come and help us. We sometimes have to get up around 4:00 a.m to move around places and houses to fetch water from streams and dugged wells.” Residents cried.
