Appiatse Disaster: Akufo-Addo to Commission 120 Housing Units for Survivors

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to commission over 120 housing units for occupancy at Appiatse, a farming community in the Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality of the Western Region. This initiative comes two years after the community was devastated by tragedy.

In January 2022, a vehicle transporting approximately 10 tonnes of mining explosives to the Chirano Mines collided with a motorcycle, resulting in a catastrophic explosion that razed the entire community to the ground. In response to this tragedy, the government swiftly initiated the reconstruction process.

The reconstruction efforts have culminated in the completion of 124 housing units and auxiliary facilities for the survivors. These newly built structures, ranging from one-bedroom to seven-bedroom units, boast enhanced amenities such as a market, six-unit classroom and kindergarten blocks, internal road networks, access to water and electricity, a drainage system, and a water storage facility.
