AMA desilts drains at CBD, urges traders to halt littering

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) on Thursday, June 6 desilted major drains at the Central Business District (CBD) to improve the flow of wastewater.

The desilting exercise, led by the acting Chairman of the Ashiedu Keteke Sub-Metropolitan Council, Hon Francis Asare, also known as “Abrantie”, aimed to address ongoing sanitation and flooding in the market following heavy rains.

Hon Asare, who also serves as the Assemblyman for the Mudor Electoral Area, revealed that a substantial accumulation of refuse had clogged the drains over time, making the clean-up difficult.

He appealed to traders to cease the practice of dumping refuse into the drains, emphasising the importance of mitigating the effects of the ongoing rainy season.
