The Chiefs and people of Upper Manya Krobo in the Eastern Region have heaved a sigh of relief because their deplorable roads that have been a worry to them for so many years are being worked on. The reshaping work has started and steadily ongoing.
It would be recalled that members of some seven farming communities in the district organized a communal labour to weed the arms of about forteen point five (14.5) kilometer Asesewa – Akorkorma Sisi road to help make it quite motorable and visible to its users. That stretch was part of the 24 kilometer road under construction but was abandoned by the contractor.
During the communal labour, the people lamented that they go through a lot of difficulties getting their farm produce to the market centres and sending their sick to the Asesewa Government Hospital for medical care. A situation that leads to the continues high post harvest lost, charging of exorbitant transport fares and decline in healthcare deliveries.
