Kunyukuo-Tangzu Residents Faces Serious Water Challenges
Resident of Kunyukuo-Tangzu community in the Lawra Municipality of the Upper West Region have decried the challenges they go through to access potable water in the community for domestic purposes such as cooking and drinking.
They said the community depends on a single borehole for potable water which compels some of the residents to rely on nearby streams for water. A resident of the community, who gave his name as Augustine, told Info Radio in an interview at the community at the weekend that the situation affects their business and farming activities as they have to spend their productive hours at the borehole queuing for water.
Another resident, Madam Edith Kog, Madam Kog, said the situation is a source of worry to them as they sometimes do not get water to fetch.
Goal six of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs stresses the need for every member state that is signatory to the goals to make good water and sanitation accessible to its citizens by 2030.
