Inhabitants of Nyange, a community in the Sawla- Tuna- Kalba District of the Savannah Region have appealed to government to provide them with potable water to help curb the scarcity of water in the area.
Speaking in an interview with Yagbon News, Hon. Datoor Kwabena Jacob, the Assembly Member for the Konkrompe Electoral Area said, water scarcity in the area had always been a problem for inhabitants of the community.
He explained that the situation gets worse during the dry season.
Hon Jacob said the only source of water serving the community was a borehole which has broken down forcing residents to draw water from a dam.
He expressed worry about the hygienic nature of the water body saying inhabitants could be exposed to waterborne diseases as the inhabitants share the same dam with their animals and therefore called for immediate intervention.
Nyange is a farming community in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District with over 900 inhabitants and they cultivate cassava, yam, maize, millet, groundnut and guinea corn
