EPA sues AMA for dumping liquid waste in Korle Gono Beach

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has been ordered to stop dumping human waste in the Korle Gono Beach in Accra.

The order follows a suit brought against the AMA and its Chief Executive, Mr. Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, by the Environmental Protection Agency (APA).

Justice K A Ofori-Atta who presided over the case said, "It is ordered that the [AMA and its Chief Executive] should refrain from dumping raw liquid sewerage on the Korle Gono Beach [popularly called Lavender Hill]."
