GWCL fails to repair broken pipe at Gbemomo

A seven-year-old child trying to cross the deep hole left unattended by the GWCL.For two years, officials of the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) have failed to mend a broken pipe despite calls on them to do so by residents of  Gbemomo, near Washing Bay at New Fadama, in Accra.

The 12-feet deep crevice referred to as a death trap by the residents is 200-metres away from the Chief Imam’s residence, a route used by school children every day.

Five months ago, plumbers believed to be staff of the GWCL started work on the broken pipe as water flowed freely into an open drain and abandoned it.

Alhaji Baba, a resident told The Ghanaian Times last Friday that calls on the GWCL to replace the broken pipe fell on deaf ears, saying some GWCL officials demanded that money be paid before they fix the pipe.

Efforts by The Ghanaian Times to seek reasons why the problem was not rectified proved futile.
