Weija youth block landfill site over increased cholera cases

Youth in Weija in the Ga South Municipal Assembly on Friday blocked the road leading to a landfill site in the area in protest at what they say are unfulfilled promises by the government.

The irate youth cautioned that until government fulfills its promise to construct the Weija road and provide health care facilities; they will continue to prevent the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and Zoomlion Ghana Limited, from using the Weija landfill site.

Spokesperson for the youth, M.C. Kwame said on Adom Fm’s Dwaso Nsem on Friday that, their decision is to demonstrate their anger at the government for not fulfilling the promises it made to them.

He said the liquid waste from the landfill site runs into their homes thereby causing serious health challenges to them, especially now that there cholera is spreading fast in the region.
