The assembly man for Mutiensa, Kubelinsa and Bachingsa electoral area in the Builsa north Municipality, Hon Stephen Yaro, Chief and residents of Motiensa, a fast developing community in the Builsa north Municipality have appealed to the government through the municipal assembly to move quickly to fix a damaged bridge to allow for free movement of people and goods from the area.

Safety concerns had stopped the community members from using the bridge for their daily activities.

This has brought huge discomfort to the people in Mutiensa and the adjoining communities such as Zuedem, Kpalinsa and Tankansa to Wiaga township.

Speaking to Kwaching Agwaazeh in an interview, the assembly man for the area Hon Stephen Yaro lamented that they are cut off from the municipality business centers during the rainy season and access to emergency services in the area is affecting the residents negatively including quality healthcare delivery, hence their call.

“If someone is sick or pregnant, there is no means to take us to the hospital early. Because of the bridge, the person can die or lose the baby. So, we want the government to come to our aid,” he noted.

He added that “if it rains, some people cannot cross to go to the market. Pregnant women are compelled to deliver at home and so we want government to fix the bridge for us” .

“The collapsed bridge has affected teaching and learning. When it rains both pupils and teachers absent themselves from school, as a result, some parents have withdrawn their wards from school, reducing our enrolment.
