Cholera outbreak and other deadly communicable diseases are imminent in Tetegu, Oblogo, Weija and surrounding communities as the rains set in.
A TV XYZ painstaking investigations show that besides choked drains and filth engulfing the town, households are channeling faecal matter into the Densu river which is a source of livelihood for indigenes.
The threat is higher as most of the affected areas are flood prone.
When XYZ reporter Piesie Okrah visited some of the communities in the area, the pollution was heavy as garbage could be seen floating freely in the river.
Tei, a fisherman who has been working on the river for years bemoaned the level of pollution in the river which he says was once a source of drinking water for the indigenes.
“Today, working on this river is not a good experience because of the level of pollution that has taking place here,” he told Piesie Okrah.
He said he and other colleagues who have been fishing in the Densu river always harvest plastics and other wastes on daily basis.
“Apart from harvesting a chunk of waste which is found in the river, the lives of the fishes in the river are threatened by the domestic activities around,” Tei indicated.
