Residents and drivers at Abuom Junction at Kwabenya in the Dome-Kwabenya constituency of the Greater Accra Region have embarked on a demonstration to force government to construct their roads.
Kwabenya and its surrounding communities including Taifa,Dome, Pillar Two, Haatso, Agbogba and Ashongman, have numerous potholes and untarred roads.
The roads are dusty and become very muddy and unusable when there is a heavy downpour.
Residents have subsequently named the pot holes ‘Adwoa Safo gutters’. The name coined from the Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo.
Hundreds of residents poured on the principal streets in the area on Tuesday, 4 September 2018. The protesters were dressed in red and black attire with marching red armbands and head gears.
Some also carried placards some of which read : “Fix the bad roads”,”We are crying, just fix our bad roads”,” Our car maintenance is very high”,”Kwabenya is suffering”.
They pleaded with the MP and other relevant authorities to come to their aid and fix the roads in the vicinity.
They blocked the roads to show their displeasure and later marched to the office of the MP at St. Johns.
