The Paramount Chief of Kpone Traditional Area, Nii Tetteh Otu II, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the level of contamination in water bodies in the Greater Accra Region as a result of industrialization and human activities.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency cited by Vesta Daily News in Kpone, Nii Otu lamented that most rivers, lagoons, and other bodies of water in the Region had been left contaminated with no steps in place to clean them up.

“See how we are killing all the water bodies in Accra from Kpone through Chemu in Tema, Sakumo, Kpeshie, and the rest,” he said.

The Chief asked what officials were doing with water waste, stating that arrangements must be set in place for factories whose operations polluted water bodies in order to assist in their reclamation.

Such areas, according to Nii Otu, should be transformed into leisure areas and tourist destinations, just as they are in other countries such as China.

In another creation, Mr. Solomon Tetteh Appiah, the Municipal Chief Executive of Kpone-Katamanso, has urged residents to plant trees in their homes to replace those that were cut down during construction.

Information reaching Vesta Daily News Mr. Appiah said at Kpone that “those who cut trees to build must have that same spirit to replant them in their areas”.

He went on to say that concreting any available room in neighborhoods and houses was a big cause of floods because the land did not contain the water when it rained.
