Management of Kakum National Park deny reports it poses danger

Management of the Kakaum Natioanl Park and Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission has downplayed reports by JoyNews of visible wear and tear on portions of the Kakum walkway in Cape Coast.   

JoyNews’ Manasseh Azuri Awuni who visited the park said the wooden boards of the walkway had broken, nets torn, and metals railings broken.

Some ropes holding the suspended bridge appeared to be loose at the time of his visit to the park.

Apart from the neat and well-maintained washrooms, all facilities at the park are deteriorating.

But Manager of the Ghana Heritage Conservation Trust, managers of the Kakum National Park, Francis Cobbinah, who spoke to JoyNews insists that the Kakum Canopy Walkway as it is now poses no danger to patrons.

He said the walkway is inspected every morning to ensure that gaps that develop in it are pushed together before it is open to the public.

According to him, the walkway still attracts a lot of foreign visitors each day and remains a very important tourist attraction in the country.
