U/W: Deadly river across Buritenga and Lassie in Wa West

Residents within the Lassie enclave of the Wa West District have bemoaned a deadly river that poses threat to their lives.

According to the residents, the river lies across the only access route that connects Lassie, Buritenga and the adjoining communities, thus they have to swim along with their goods anytime like jellyfishes. Reports prove that the river which serves as a boundary between the Kende and Lassie Electoral Areas is about 200 metres wide across the footpath.

The residents lamented that pupils who attend school at Lassie swim at neck-levels and some submerged incognito every day to and from school. This, they said, leaves parents uncomfortable anytime their children set out for school.

Speaking to the Assembly Member for Lassie Electoral Area, Michael Arah Sei-uu, he reveal that the Wa West District Assembly has earmarked the river for construction of a dam under the government's One Village, One Dam initiative, which will have an access road. He, however, noted that he has called on the Assembly Member for Kende Electoral Area to put heads together for an amicable solution.
