Breman Jamrah gets new KG block months after deadly collapse

The new block was constructed at the cost of GH¢200,000[/caption] A new kindergarten block has been constructed for the Breman Jamrah Methodist Basic School in the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa District of the Central Region. This replaces the old one that collapsed and killed four KG children early this year. The whole Jamrah township was thrown into a state of mourning on January 31, 2017 when six kindergarten pupils were killed after their classroom collapsed. READ: Kindergarten building collapses, killing six kids According to sources, several organizations pledged to put up a new building for the school but that could not see the light of the day. But Goldkey Properties came in to put up a two-unit KG block with offices for the school though the Asikuma-Odobeng-Brakwa District Assembly had already started with the construction. At a ceremony held to commission the new block, the Chief of Breman Jamrah, Nana Fosu, and the Paramount Chief of Breman Asikuma Traditional Area, Odeefo Amoakwa Boadu, expressed gratitude to Goldkey Properties for the support. Central Region Minister Kwamena Duncan admonished all stakeholders of development including districts assemblies to play their role effectively in order to ensure that such disasters do not recur. Mr Duncan led the gathering to observe a minute silence for the departed souls. The Executive Director of Goldkey Properties, Cynthia Acquaye, disclosed plans to adopt the school to provide the necessary support it may need. District Chief Executive Isaac Odoom and Member of Parliament Anthony Effah were worried about the poor communication network in Breman Jamrah. Jonathan Ekuamoah, who partnered the GH¢200,000 project including a refurbishment of a six-unit classroom block called on other corporate organisations to reach out to the needs of communities.
