Metro Ghana: Students Drink Gutter Water To Stay Alive [PHOTOS]



To stay alive, students of the Koforidua Technical School (KOTECH) at Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana have resorted to fetching water from trenches, gutters for personal and domestic use over shortage of water that has plagued the institution for the past two weeks.

Citifmonline reports that over 1000 students of the school have had no water flowing through their taps for the past two weeks, as the only borehole in the school is out of service. This comes almost a week after the Eastern Regional office of the Ghana Water Company Limited issued letters to schools within the region to pay their debts to the company.

Local news report says that students struggle daily to find water outside the school for domestic activities. Some are forced to beg residents in nearby communities for water, with others resorting to water flowing in trenches and gutters. As ugly as it is, some even scoop water from stagnant, dirty pools.
