The Krokrobite Traditional Council in the Ga South Municipality is pleading with the Power Distribution Service, PDS, to restore power in the Kokrobite township.
The community has not had power supply for nearly two weeks, after an employee of PDS who had gone to work on a power problem, was inflicted with cutlass wounds by an irrate resident.
Residents of the Kokrobite community suspect that they are being punished by PDS over the attack on the employee.
Speaking on CiTiFM's Eyewitness News, the Chief of Kokrobite, Nii Ayinsah Sasraku III, noted that the Council had officially written to PDS to plead and assure it of the safety of its staff, anytime they come to work in the area.
“It’s almost two weeks now and the people in my neighbourhood are suffering. One person should not create a problem for the community to suffer. So, we are very serious in getting this [gentleman who committed the offence] to be dealt with according to the law,” he said.
According to the traditional council, they re putting measures in place to help the police apprehend the culprit of the attack.
“My subjects and the assemblyman are working hand in hand to commit ourselves that such a thing like that will never happen again so that we have the problem solved once and for all. That is the request from PDS and we have signed a bond of good behaviour. So, we are expecting a reply from them. So we are appealing to the authorities to get our power resolved”, he noted.
