Disaster looms at Ablekuma, Kasoa, Ofankor because of building on hills

Residents of some communities in Accra and Kasoa Tollbooth have been alerted to a possible landslide disaster, similar to the one that claimed the lives of more than 1,000 people in Freetown, Sierra Leone in August this year. The Ghana Institution of Engineers (GhIE) gave the warning and said: “The circumstances that led to the Sierra Leonean situation are not different from what is happening today in Ghana around the Kasoa Tollbooth, Ablekuma, NIC and Ofankor all in the Greater Accra Region.”
