A number of 50 persons have been made to desilt choked gutters at Kasoa for flouting the lockdown rules.
The 50, which include both men and women were loitering about in town instead of staying in their homes as expected in this lockdown period.
They were arrested by the joint Military and Police task force in various locations in Kasoa.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.com.
The MCE for Awutu Senya East, Michael Mensah, said such people would be engaged in communal labour for flouting the rules.
He said the men will desilt the choked drains while the women sweep the Kasoa flyover.
The 50 were arrested by the joint Military and Police task force in different locations in Kasoa.
This punishment, he said is expected to prevent people from loitering around in town.
“We don’t take delight in having people desilt gutters because we have the budget for that but I must also say that when we started this it has brought huge restrictions on people loitering,” the MCE stressed.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh published earlier a young man who was caught around area and made to sweep the Kasoa market.
He was caught taking photos of the military men who were on duty in the area.
