Residents and Commuters now find it difficult to move either to their farms or public places as recent rains have further destroyed the improvised Kalbeo footbridge, of the Kalbeo community, a suburb of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region.
The rains have not only destroyed the bridge but have further created water diversions that makes it extremely difficult for easy passage of commuters.
Residents and commuters say, they are living in fear as the footbridge has become a death-trap.
Some residents who struggled to cross the bridge to Bolga township accused politicians of neglecting them and leaving them to their fate despite several appeals to fix the footbridge.
Ayine Joseph said, “Just yesterday, one gentleman nearly lost his life here. After the rain, he belittles the water and thought that he could cross so on his tempt there, the water pushes him towards the deeper side of it. Lucky on his part people were there to save him. He was a grown man but imagine a child. It is sad that politics has grown this way.”
Demond Azure also expressed his disappointment at the Member of Parliament for Bolga-Central, Isaac Adongo for his inability to find a lasting solution to the people who voted for him.
“The way Isaac has made promises of working on this bridge; it is shocking that we cannot find his taillights. His own people yet he cannot find lasting solutions to their plight what more others”.
