John Dumelo has confirmed that he was stopped by the Ayawaso West Assembly told him to stop the dredging of the West Legon gutters which comes out from his own pocket.
National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon, John Dumelo started dredging gutters in the West Legon constituency out from his own resources.
The decision to start work on dredging the gutter, he said, was informed by a promise he made to the community when he paid a visit to assess the discomfort residents face whenever it rains.
The respected actor gathered that the gutter causes flooding when it rains. Even though the people leaving there has appealed countlessly to the government to come to their aid, it has all proven futile until Dumelo came in the scene.
Dumelo said on the first day that work commenced:
“When it rains, here becomes flooded. It’s been flooding every single year. The people have complained that at least the gutter should be widened… If you look at the Christian Village bridge, it’s low and so when it rains, all the debris and everything collects and that’s how come the water levels here rise up.”
He was stopped recently by the authorities who probably were thinking he is outshining them politically.
They are alleged to have given no reason for their order.
Dumelo confirmed the news on Twitter after one of his fans asked him about it.
