THE ASSEMBLYMAN of Buaben, Charles Obeng, has appealed to the government through the Upper Denkyira East Municipal Assembly to consider rehabilitating the Dunkwa-Buaben road, which is claiming precious lives through accidents, as a result of its bad nature.
Four persons are said to have lost their lives last week when a K.I.A. truck with registration number AW 2753 11 which was conveying cement from Dunkwa to Buabeng skidded off the road into a valley. Other persons on board sustained various degrees of injuries.
Hon. Charles Obeng, who helped to convey the victims to the Dunkwa Government Hospital for treatment and onward transfer to the Accident and Emergency Centre of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, told The Chronicle that the road network had deteriorated for some time now but no attention is being paid to it.
He mentioned those on admission at KATH as Kofi Boateng, Samuel Oppong, Kwasi Opoku and Kwame Mfante.
The Assemblyman said even though the said road has been given on contract by COCOBOD to USSUYA (GH) LTD, the work is shoddy causing numerous accidents.
Hon. Nana Amoako, the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area who spoke to this reporter said his major problem as the law maker for the area was road networks and appealed to the government to come to their aid by rehabilitating the roads in the area. Pix: Dunkwa-Buaben road
