More than 13,000 residents in 15 communities in the Bono East Region have finally been provided with potable drinking water, through the installation of mechanised boreholes by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Techiman South, Mr. Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah.

The beneficiary communities include Anomatoa, Benkai, Tobaccomu, Ampemkrom, Fiaso, Bomene, Pahoso, Dogo Akura, Woraso, and Unas Akura. Others are Nsuta, Kaniago, Old Bomiri, Anitinfe, and Akisimasu.

Speaking in an interview with the media at the inauguration of some of the completed boreholes, the MP, who is also the Deputy Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, noted with regret that some Ghanaians competed for water with animals, hence, the gesture.

The community water project commenced about three months ago, and the aim was to ensure that the constituents got access to potable water.

The first phase has seen the completion of about 15 boreholes, whilst the second phase, involving 20 boreholes, was ongoing.

Mr. Adjei Mensah said he was committed to solving the water challenges in the constituency, as well as unemployment.

Some residents of the beneficiary communities showered praises on the MP for coming to their aid.
