The residents of Charingu in the Wa municipality have blamed the felling down of trees in the community on the lack of jobs in the community.
The residents in an interaction acknowledged the efforts of the government in constructing a dam in the community which should have helped them in engaging themselves in dry season gardening.
Unfortunately according to the people, the dam is not big enough to serve as drinking water for their livestock and also serve as a source of water for their dry season gardens. They are therefore calling on the government through the Wa Municipal Assembly to come to their aid by expanding the dam to a bigger one which will serve these two purposes in the community.
Otherwise the women and young men in the community only engage in cutting down trees to sell as firewood to buyers from Wa who go to buy them in the community.
Meanwhile, the Assembly member of Charingu, Hon. Issahaku Fuseini attributed the failure of some of the youth in making the dry season gardens to laziness because according to him, there are other community members who still construct dry season gardens around the dam and still go ahead to dig ponds in order to water those gardens.
