THE Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Mr Samuel Sarpong, has stated that the assembly will resume the demolishing exercise to clear illegal structures on watercourses.
The exercise, which started early this year, was temporarily suspended to pave way for public education.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic after visiting areas affected by recent floods in the metropolis, Mr Sarpong said one sure way to prevent flooding and its attendant consequences was to stop construction in watercourses.
He indicated that if the assembly had not demolished some buildings, dredged rivers and constructed drains in parts of the city, the rains would have caused unimaginable destruction last Tuesday night.
“That is why we have to take measures to continue with the demolishing exercise,” he stressed.
Mr Sarpong called on the people to support the assembly to bring sanity into the administration of the city.
