We Don't Want Your 2 Cups Of Rice Again - Kasoa Residents Tell Hawa Koomson Over Broken Bridge

Residents of CP Asempa down in Kasoa in the Central region have sent a warning to their MP Hon Mavis Hawa Koomson concerning promises she made to them during the 2020 elections. The bridge on a river body in the area is broken and this causes the area to be submerged in water whenever it rains. According to them the MP promised them during the 2020 elections to fix the bridge however it has not been done.

Residents said before the elections, she brought sand, cement and gravels to the site. She came along with some engineers for about some two days and never returned after she won the elections. They said no one should bring a ballot box to the center during elections. They said most members in the area are NPP members but they are now fed up with them.

According to one woman, they only bring them 2 cups of rice during campaign but that does not satisfy them. According to the unit committee chairman, Stephen Forson, the community members contributed to buy some building materials and the MP supported them but the construction has never begun. The rains have caused the area to be flooded with water and residents are unable to go about their normal duties.
