demolished

More than 40 houses and structures at Green Belt site, close to the Weija Dam, have been demolished by the Ga South Municipal Authority (GSMA).

The demolition followed several warnings by the Municipal Authority against such illegal structures to protect the Dam.

Mr Felix Ofosu Teye, the GSMA Engineer, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said the Dam served close to 4,000 people in the Greater Accra Region and that allowing structures and settlements around the water source was dangerous.

He said the Assembly had cautioned the property owners since 2015 and 2018 and that they could not be allowed to continue to pollute the water.

“Moving around the structures we also noticed that some of them have connected their sewage system close to the water, which is very dangerous,” Mr Teye said.

Some had been summoned, especially those with their sewage connected to the water body, he said.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
