Decaying Parliament House building cries for help

Listen to article

Rusty electrical switches and broken concrete slabs are rendering the building housing the legislative body of Ghana a public danger.

Given the consistent incidence of fire outbreaks in the country some of which have been attributed to poor electrical wiring and fake cables, it is troubling that exposed rusty sockets are being used right in the Speaker's Chamber despite the glaring warning signs.

Broken concrete slabs on the main pedestrian walkway to the Parliament have been left unattended to for years.

In the main chamber of the House, some back-benchers are complaining about malfunctioning microphones and overcrowding.

Joy News has learnt that some MPs have to congregate around one microphone if they want to make contributions to debates on the floor of the House.
