At least people in three communities of Ejisu Municipal Assembly (Ashanti Region) have complained about what they term as a planned strategy the Ghanaian Sanitation company Zommlion Ghana Ltd is using to kill them.
According to peopleour correspondent Joe Marfo spoke with led by Former Assembly Member forBesease and Jamasi electoral area,Mr Samuel Danquah they have blamed the bad situation on the current manager of ZoomlionforEjisu Municipal, Mr Eliasu.
They also expressed fear that, too much dirt in their communities my spearhead the spread of the pandemic coronavirus.
Speaking in an interview with the Former Assembly member, Hon. S. S Dankwah he noted that, “We have heard there is some sickness which is contracted through unhygienic living. We were told we have to wash our hands among others. But the manager of Zoomlion Ghana Company in the Ejisu Municipal is scheming for our death”.
“He wants us to contract the pandemic virus. This is because when the bins are full and you call his drivers to come and empty them, they will not come. They will tell you we don’t have tires, we don’t have diesel and all sort of excuses. It can take a month before this man leases a vehicle to you. For me, I suggest he should be fired. The previous manager was better then what we have now”. Hon SS Dankwah chided.
According to him, the new manager in the Municipal is not fit for his job because he can’t make simple requisition to get ordinary tires for trucks.
Some communities affected include, EjisuBesease, Jamasi among others.
“Always we have to talk about this. Sometimes it takes more than tow month before they come to empty the bins. We are pleading for those responsible for it to do so. You can’t stand it when its bad scent begin to smell”. A member of the community told Joe Marfo as he toured the area this week.
Another desperate woman revealed: “sometimes when you go to dump your refuse, they tell you the bin is full so you have to bring it back home and keep the germs with you. This can bring infections to us”.
“It breads mosquitoes so it makes it difficult for us to take in fresh air at night when there is light out”. Another woman cried.
For now, it is unclear that this situation can bring the spread of the infamous coronavirus.
So far, 11 persons have been confirmed to have contracted COVID 19 in the country.
Confirmed cases worldwide pass 2200,000 with deaths near 9,000.
