Before you proceed with this article kindly follow me by clicking on the follow option.


Information reaching Nkilgi FM a Bole based radio station in the Savannah region of Ghana on 6th February, 2021 states that, the Damongo residents are currently going through an acute water crisis.

As a result of this acute crisis, there is a significant increase in the cost of drums and gallons of water by suppliers. Evident as a gallon of water is now Gh¢1 and the big yellow gallons of water sells at Gh¢10 in the Damongo municipality of the Savannah region.

All these years, the agric dam in the Savannah regional capital Damongo has been the main source of water for the inhabitants and currently in this part of the country, rainfall has stopped thereby, depriving the dam of water which in turn causes the dried up of the dam as pressure mounts on it.

Life has become difficult for the people of Damongo and now the situation has reached a period where students have to sacrifice their studies time in search for water rendering their academic work ineffective.

Mr Imoro Samed a resident in Damongo also a unit committee chairman spoke to Nkilgi FM and in his speech he confirmed that, actually their major source of water has been the agric dam but as at now that he is talking, it is dried up completely forcing inhabitants to divert to canteen dam which is also about to dry up.

He concluded by appealing to all Ghanaians, that whoever that can help them out of this crisis should come to their aid in this critical times of water crisis in Damongo since they have been let down by politicians in the country having promised them of providing adequate source of water since time immemorial but continues to fail them after getting what they want from them.
