A release signed by Mr Akitiwah Joseph Tetteh and Dadematse Teye Joseph, Secretary and Chairman, respectively, of the Yilo Krobo Development Committee, said the residents would embark on a peaceful demonstration on November 4, 2020 to “drum home our disappointments and frustrations if the challenges were not addressed by October 20.”

The statement alleged that the Company had diverted all water projects to the Regional capital, Koforidua, and threatened to take to the streets if efforts were not made in time to address their concerns.

It said the chiefs and people had been appealing to the government to address the water crises since 2008 but till date nothing had been done about it.

It said residents of the Community had been deprived of potable water, with many sharing water sources with animals.
