The reconstruction of buildings destroyed by the explosion at Appiatse, near Bogoso in the Western Region could commence on Monday, January 24, 2022.

Ghanaians were hit with bad news on Thursday when a truck carrying some mining explosives crashed with a motor bicycle, resulting in the explosion.

The tragic incident did not only lead to the loss of lives, it also saw almost every house in Appiatse destroyed one way or the other.

According to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Prestea-Huni Valley, Dr Isaac Dasmani, the construction of the destroyed buildings will start on Monday.

“I will need building materials because for how long can we feed the victims. We want the authorities to come to our aid to start construction as soon as possible.

“By Monday, we will clear the site and start construction as soon as possible,” the MCE told TV3 on Saturday.

Already, government has given the assurance that no stone will be left unturned in efforts to restore normalcy to Appiatse.

During a visit to the affected community on Friday, Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia stressed that government will be involved to ensure all destroyed houses are rebuilt for the victims of the tragic explosion.

In the first step, the President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has donated GHS200,000 to support the victims.
