Kaemebre is a suburb of Kasoa in the Central region of Ghana. This relatively small community has a bad road network which often causes road accidents and the breakdown of vehicles.
The nature of the road makes it challenging for commercial vehicles to access the community.
According to the Assembly man of the area, Mr. Ebenezer Ansah, his initial plan is to organize the youth to fill the potholes as they await government’s intervention.
“Since the government has not replied our request, we will keep on submitting our petitions to them,” he said.
On his part, he could only express hope for government to aid in the construction of the road to shrink the accidents.
The poor nature of the road and the unwillingness of commercial vehicles to visit the Kaemebre community, compels majority of residents to walk from their homes to the Kasoa-Accra highway or the Bowjuase road.
In an interview with Madam Emelia Yeboah, a resident, she explained, “ I moved to kaemebre six (6) years ago and the roads have been the same.”
“Although we lodged a complaint to the district assembly, it appears everything falls on deaf ears. We would be glad if the government helps us since there is an ongoing road project at the Kasoa road," she added.
As a petty trader, the challenging means of transporting goods to the roadside is a problem.
According to her, rampant rainfall causes erosion which makes the road muddy thereby hindering smooth movement.
