Rex Asanga, MCE for Bolgatanga has opined that there may be deliberate attempts by some butchers to sabotage the Assembly’s attempts to fully operationalize the ultra-modern abattoir at Yorogo; a suburb of Bolgatanga.

Speaking to Bismark Ayorogo on the holiday edition of A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Mr Asanga said a group of butchers has consistently thrown stumbling blocks to frustrate the initial relocation attempts. To still further their personal gains, the butchers continue to exaggerate minute issues making mountains out of molehills.

“It is increasingly becoming clear that the butchers appear to want to do anything that would make the abattoir [at Yorogo] not work well, so that they can have an excuse or that we would change our minds and allow them to go back to the old slaughterhouse.”

“When they were at the old slaughterhouse, they were paying for their own water. Ever since they moved to this new facility, they have not paid a dime for water. Each time there is a problem and our water system is not working, the Assembly is the one that has to organise immediately for water, with a tanker, to go and serve them. So if water is not flowing and they are able to call the press and they are not able to call the Assembly, then there is a problem. They have the [phone] numbers. There is a committee. The chairman of the butchers association is a member of that committee,” he said.

The MCE went on to say that the day before the butchers reached out to the media to narrate their side of the story, the Assembly had provided them with water. Mr Asanga explained that “this particular day, the tanker had delayed. We [the Assembly] do not have a tanker service. And they called pressmen to come and show how there was no water flowing”.

It would be recalled that the butchers in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region over the weekend, were lamenting over the recent water crisis that has hit their ultramodern Abattoir in Yorogo over the past few days.

According to the butchers, moving to the Abattoir has been rather a punishment than the heaven that was promised to them.
