Deprived community rejects water pump worth GHc20,000 because DCE and MP belong to NPP

A Ghanaian community in the Abura Asebu Kwamankese (AAK) District in the Central region, Kwasankrom have rejected an ultra-modern water pump built to provide the community with potable drinking water.

The project costing GH¢ 20,000.00 was built to provide the community with potable drinking water as they have been without good drinking water for years.

According to reports, the rejection of the water pump is because the District Chief Executive (DCE), Madam Felicia Aba Hagan and the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Elvis Morris Donkoh, are both members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The people of Kwansakrom-numbering about 500 inhabitants-drink water from a nearby stream full of impurities which serves as their main source of drinking water. They share the stream with their livestock.

Their rejection of the potable water, especially on a partisan basis, infuriated the DCE so much that she instructed her team to lock the water pump with a padlock.

Irritated MP for the constituency, Mr. Donkor said; “Whichever party that you belong to, whether National Democratic Congress, NPP or Convention People’s Party, the main focus of these political parties is to help our communities develop so if NPP is in power, join hands for the development of the community.”
