In a swift move, the Family Chapel international (FCI), a charismatic church in Kumasi has contracted a private company to drive away some strange mosquitoes that had invaded the Susanso River.
The mosquitoes, having been a nuisance to the churches congregation, had also bitten some residents with many still on admission at various clinics in the Susanso community.
But, in a remarkable move laced with compassion, the church had contracted Zector Control Consult Limited to fumigate the entire river body.
Readers may recall that the Ghanaian Observer about two weeks ago reported the appearance of some strange mosquitoes in the Susanso community.
However, during a visit to the site last weekend, the church had acquired the services of Mr. Joseph Stiles-Ocran, CEO of the private spraying and fumigating company to help deal with the scourge of the insects.
The team diligently had succeeded in fumigating the entire water body with the mosquitoes dying with ease.
The marauding mosquitoes which hitherto had parried of every insecticide applied for its control had surprisingly died in the water with their stools being moved away by the water.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer later, Rev. Dr. Victor Osei, General Overseer of Family Chapel International (FCI), expressed happiness at the rate of work the team had done.
He noted the exercise had suddenly kept the flies at bay, adding the mosquitoes were present even during the day.
The church leader said the church had decided to take charge of the health of their congregation and hence this action to fumigate the entire water body.
According to him, the Church decided to engage the service of the fumigation Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) had refused to heed their cry for help.
He encouraged residents of Susanso to take charge of their health by also contributing their quota to help to desilt the water-body periodically since the mosquitoes had shown they come at the early parts of December and January.
