Chiefs calls for action on Kalakpa Game Reserve

Ho, May 12, GNA - Togbe Abutia Kodzo Gidi V, Fiaga of Abutia traditional area on Tuesday urged government to resettle communities within the Kalakpa Game Reserve to allow for its development. Togbe Gidi, whose traditional area holds much of the reserve made the appeal when he called on the Volta Regional Minister, Mr Joseph Amenowode on Tuesday. He said the Reserve is being underutilized and its development into a tourism attraction continues to be held back because of the human settlements within it.

Togbe Gidi appealed to government to help complete the school and road projects in the traditional area, and that his people are willing to offer communal labour on those projects. Togbe Adolph Torwoe, Fiatorgah of Dodome traditional area who also called on Mr Amenowode urged government to facilitate the completion of the Dzolo to Dodome and Matse- Dodome-Klave roads, which has come to a standstill.


Mr Amenowode commended the Chiefs for being development oriented and re-iterated government's commitment to completing uncompleted projects in the country.
