How Chamba East communities in Nanumba North still hang phones on trees to receive and make calls.

In the 21st century where technology and access to information is widespread, the people of some communities in the Chamba East electoral in the Nanumba North Municipality of the northern region, have to hang their mobile phones on trees to enable them access telecommunication network services. The communities include; Nbondo, Nasando, Bondando, Lifaldo and some other villages in the area. According to the people residing in the communities, there is poor network reception in the area, thereby compelling them to hang their mobile phones on trees to enable them make or receive calls. "You see we have been hanging our phones here on these trees to receive signals. If you don't that you make or receive calls. Our relatives who are in other parts of the country struggle to speak to us on phone because of the poor network and we also go through problem. So our mobile phones are always hanging here and we sit by them. This is our plight" Isaac Ntadi, a resident of Bondando lamented.

The residents in the area are therefore appealing to government, MTN Ghana, Vodafone Ghana, Airtel Tigo and Glo Ghana to come their rescue. Besides the poor network challenges, the road network in the area is in terrible shape. They want the Nanumba North Municipal assembly to pay special attention to the poor road network in the area.
