A SANITATION COURT at Asokwa in the Kumasi Metropolis, established to deal with sanitation issues will begin operations, latest by next month.

Kumasi Mayor, Kojo Bonsu, during a tour of the facility on Thursday, charged those working on the project to speed-up work so that the facility would be furnished within one-month time.

He stressed on the need for the Sanitation Court to begin operation within that period to help resolve the numerous sanitation problems and cases in the metropolis.

Work on the first phase of the Sanitation Court at Asokwa in Kumasi, being constructed by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), is almost completed. The facility is left with furnishing.

Kojo Bonsu who visited the construction site was optimistic that ‘when the court becomes operational it will help bring discipline and sanity with regard to the management of sanitation in the city.’ 

The Sanitation Court, being built at Asokwa in Kumasi, was part of the ongoing KMA projects in the city that Kojo Bonsu and his team visited on Wednesday to acquaint himself with the extent of work done so far.

They included a 12 unit-classroom block at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Senior High School and the construction of male and female wards as well as a Special Ward at Atonsu-Agogo Hospital.

The projects which are at various levels of completion are being funded under the Urban Development Grant (UDG) and they are geared towards enhancing the lives of the populace.

At the KNUST Senior High School, the Headmistress of the school, Mrs Joyce Owusu-Ansah, lauded the classroom block project, insisting that it would help the school to effectively deal with its booming student population.

She, however, called for more assistance from the KMA and other well-to-do organisations, stressing that ‘the school still needs more classroom blocks to help boost its academic work.’

At the Atonsu-Agogo Hospital, a Consultant Surgeon, Dr Frank Abebrese, expressed his gratitude to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) for the construction of the Special Ward at the place.

When completed, he announced that the project would add 120 beds to the current bed capacity of 60, commending the KMA for its continuous support to the advancement of the hospital.

Kojo Bonsu who was accompanied by some heads of departments of the assembly, expressed contentment about what he witnessed during the tour, urging those working on the projects to sustain their hard work.
