Information gathered by Evans Kwaku Oboafi Junior (Hardrock), indicates that the People of Brakwa, Kokoso and it environment in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District C/R are likely to suffer water shortage due to government’s inability to pay GH¢ 428,298.07 Dept to the Water generating and supply organization in the area.
According to the source, this huge amount the government of Ghana owe this organization (Brakwa Kokoso Water Board) during the free water supply era from April 2020 to March 2021 has led to the organization inability to pay Electricity bill, buy spare pumping machine, do extension and many other maintenance.
Our background checks shows clearly that, during July 2021, supply of water to these areas siezed for about five days because the electricity energy which is use to pump water from their engine room was disconnected by E.C.G.
Talking to Lawyer Kwame Ampofo, the board chairman of Brakwa Kokoso Water Board he made it clear that out of the total amount of gh 551,411 the government owe them, only gh 123,112.93 payment has been made by the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District assembly so far.
The board chairman continue to explain to Evans Kwaku Oboafi Junior that many effort has been made to the Community Water and Sanitation office at Cape Coast but has yeld no fruit.
From a reliable source, we can say this organization still owe the Electricity Company of Ghana over gh 100k, which there is clear indications that their electricity power will soon be disconnected, even if the other problems mentioned above do not take effect.
