By Slena Correspondence

An investigation into the encroachment complaint by Guma Valley Water Company was conducted last by the Ministry of Water Resources, the Ministry of Lands and Country Planning, and Ministry of Environment and other relevant agencies.

Over the years, there have been gradual encroachments at the water catchment area at no. 2 village.  

“It is evidently clear that constructions are ongoing, and human activities are indiscriminately taking place in the area, and they have been massive encroachment on the water catchment areas,” said the Minister of Water Resources, Engineer PK Lansana.

Adding that as ministries responsible for water, environment and lands,  they want to ensure that catchment areas are well protected and greenbelt established in the area.
