Appiate Reconstruction: 20 houses near completion – MCE assures public of steady progress of work

Must Read

Following government’s resolve to reconstruct Appiate Community after the fatal explosion early this year, Municipal Chief Executive of Prestea Huni-Valley, Dr. Isaac Dasmani has assured the public that the reconstruction agenda is progressing steadily.

According to the MCE, 20 buildings are near completion which will be immediately shared among residents to occupy as temporary shelters after they are roofed.

Dr. Dasmani made this announcement on Friday at the burial ceremony of some residents who lost their lives as a result of the unfortunate accident.

Speaking to Accra-based Joy News, he noted that “we’ve put all of them to rest and a number of people came around to support. The reconstruction committee has been constituted and they have started all the geological works. All those who matter in the construction industry, their teams have been around.”

“As I speak, a team from UMaT is on the field testing the soil and other important things that they need to do. We want to give the people a temporal shelter by roofing those uncompleted buildings. As we speak, 20 buildings are almost completed, very soon we’d put the roofs on top and then we’d share them for the people to stay in temporarily whilst the reconstruction people also do their work,” he added.

Dr. Isaac Dasmani further raised concerns over the payment of medical bills, stating that authorities will have to find a sustainable means of ensuring some of the victims continue to get medical attention.

“What is now worrying us is the hospitals they’re attending. Some of them are still going for reviews and when they come with some bills that we pay and all of that – that’s the challenge we are going through now,” he noted.
