The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has begun desilting the Odaw River days after heavy rainfall killed scores of people in Accra.

The Assembly promised to desilt the River in 2014 after a similar occurrence under the Conti Project.

The Metropolitan Chief Executive of the AMA, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije made the promise after the government signed a $660 million contract with the Conti Group of Companies of the United States of America.

Under the project, the Odaw River, the Lavender Hill and a number of storm drains were to be desilted and built to prevent the perennial flooding problem in the city.
