?You see children bathing in water bodies, and this is another big challenge,? Ms Prempeh, who was also a former Assembly member for the Lakoo Electoral Area in Accra, said.

She said with good leadership at the local level, sanitation can significantly be improved, adding that, she recently organized to evacuate a six-year old refuse heap at Duayaw Nkwanta.
