Ghanaians lament water crisis [Audio]



Ghanaians have expressed their anger at the recent water crisis recorded in parts of the country.

About five regions have reportedly been struggling to access potable water.

In  Tamale in the Norther region authorities are said to be rationing water.

Some of the areas hard hit by the crisis include Nsawam-Adoagyiri Municipality in the Eastern Region where the Densu River has dried up considerably, Winneba in the Central Region and parts of the Upper East and Upper West regions.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Minister for Water Resources, Works and Housing, Sampson Ahi in an interview with Citi News said the challenge with water is largely natural, because “we are in the dry season.”

“As a result of the long periods of the harmattan, most of the river bodies have dried up and this is a natural thing… we hope that it rains as soon as possible so that we would have rain water in the river.”

Some Ghanaians expressed their plight on the Citi Breakfast Show on Tuesday.
