They explained that Kalande is the food basket of the District where yam is produced is commercial quantity and that leaving the road at the mercy of running water will affect them.

” we transport our yams to Accra to sell and this is the yam season so if we allow the rains to wash off the road all in the name of government will do, it will affect us. So we appealed to the member of parliament and he gave us 1,500 cedis to get sea sand and cement to construct a long pillar so we don’t experience any wash way” . One of them explains.
