Open drain turned defecation, dump site at Alabar

An open Drain at Aboabo lorry Station (Alabar) has been turned into defecation and rubbish site.

Some traders speaking to Abusua FM’s Osei Kwadwo accused food vendors and drivers in the Aboabo station of being responsible for the filth that had engulfed the place.

“When you confront them, they ask you if you sleep in the gutter,” they said.

According to the traders, their stalls have been invaded by mosquitoes, cockroaches, rodents and some unknown bugs from the drain, a situation which could give rise to malaria and cholera.

“We will stop paying ticket to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) if they fail to dredge the drain and also provide us with waste bins. We don’t know why we should continue to pay tickets to KMA,” they said.

One trader Nana Akwasi Mensah blamed the situation on the non-availability of refuse bins in the Aboabo lorry station, which force people to sneak under the cover of darkness to dump their refuse in the drains.
