"We've Lost Lives" Sad News Hit People Of Assin South; Chief Calls for Government Intervention

Nana Appiah Nuamah II, the Chief of Assin Kyinaso in the Assin South District has appealed to the government to immediately fix a broken bridge that connect Assin Kyinaso Kakum national park and about 9 communities in the area. He said the bridge has been a threat to the lives of the people in the surrounding communities and their farm produce including cocoa beans are left to rot due to incapability to convey them to the market. This is as a result of the total collapse of the bridge, eve the vehicles have stopped going to the communities living at the other side of the river Kyina. Even tricycle cannot ply the dilapidated bridge, they have resorted to passing in the river rather.  

In an interview with the media,, Nana Appiah Nuamah II said "we have made an effort to construct by ourselves but because we lack the technical idea, it has always been washed away by the river anytime we commence the construction on our own. We just want it to be motorable for a tricycle to use, we have lost lives and goods as a result of the state of this bridge. 

Through communal labour, the community has been able to purchase 500 bags of cement to be used for the construction but unfortunately, the eroding away of it by the river is our problem. This is an indication that is not a problem that can be solved by the community due to the lack of the technical idea and inadequate funds to complete them on time. We are pleading with the government to help in the construction of the bridge.
