Chemuoteng residents appeal for clean sources of potable water
Residents of Chemuoteng, a rural community in the Ga Electoral Area of the Wa West District have appealed to the government and benevolent organizations and individuals to provide them with clean and improved sources of potable water.
They said the predominantly farming community of over a population of 400 depends on a single borehole, as one of the two boreholes at the community could not produce water.
Mr Sopinetey Kombotey, the Community Head, told Info Radio in an interview at the community that women have to queue at the borehole at night before they could access a basin of water.
He said it adversely affects their economic and farming activities as the women spent valuable time in search for water.
Madam Agatha Limpoetey, another resident, said women sometimes suffered abuse from their husbands because they are unable get water on time to cook for their husbands on the farm.
She said they sometimes have to trek to Maaduteng or Ga to fetch water, which has posed a serious challenge to their social and economic lives.
