Samreboi Youth’s in the Western Region have threatened to mobilise themselves and hit the streets over bad roads in the area.
The youth of the area have poured out their emotions and displeasures on various platforms over abandoned projects and societal neglect from the government and his corhorts.
News on the grapevine states the poor state of roads in the district is seriously affecting lives of residents as pregnant women and patients have to trek for about 40 km to access health care. Drivers are refusing to ply the roads; something the residents say is adversely affecting economic activities. The Amenfi west district is one of the best cocoa growing districts in the country but many of the communities are grappling with poor roads with some totally cut off. Commercial vehicles have drivers have abandoned and ceased plying the deplorable roads, making motorbikes their only source of transport. Periodically, when they get lucky, a tractor passing through the town lifts them to a point from where they continue their journey on foot.
The leading cocoa producing community first staged a demonstration in 2019 to awaken the government on the neglect and cut-off from the national developmental projects which they felt haven’t been watched in disdain hence the build up of emotions.
