Guatuahen of Shama builds ultra-modern lavatory for Dwomoh

 The Guatuahen of Shama in the Shama District of the Western Region, Nana Kwamina Dekyi I, has built an ultra-modern water closet toilet for a farming community called Dwomoh in the Shama Dis­trict.

At the commissioning ceremony, Nana Dekyi who is also known as Mr. Isaac Kwa­mina Afful, said open defe­cation was one of the sourc­es of diseases like diarrhea, dysentery, and others, and so all communities should strive hard to build public places of convenience for the people.

He said overhead poly tanks have been provided so the facility could still be used in times of water shortage.

The District Chief Exec­utive (DCE) of Shama, Mr. Ebenezer Dadzie said the district had about 58 com­munities, and the govern­ment alone could not offer development to all these communities at one time, so philanthropists like Nana Dekyi were doing well by complementing the gov­ernment’s developmental agenda by putting up basic amenities.

He urged the Guatuahen to continue to identify the less developed communities and provide basic amenities to such communities to catch up with the developed areas.

The Assemblyman for Dwomoh Electoral Area, Mr. James Atieko said he ap­proached the Guatuahen in 2020 for the facility but the COVID-19 pandemic inter­rupted and the construction.

“Today the people of Dwomoh are happy to have this modern facility, which means no more open defeca­tion in the Dwomoh commu­nity,” he said.

Mr. Atieko disclosed that Nana Dekyi had earlier assisted the community in constructing bridges across some streams to create ac­cess roads to the community, adding that the community was grateful for the projects and encouraged the chief to do more.
