Suame Interchange Land Encroachers Have No Claim For Compensation For Throwing Caution To The Wind – Kyei Mensah Bonsu

Member of Parliament for Suame, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has issued a reminder to those who have deliberately encroached on portions of the space reserved for the entire stretch of the construction of the Suame interchange project when their property is demolished that they have themselves to blame.

According to Hon Mensah-Bonsu the developers threw caution to the wind knowing very well that they were putting up structures illegally so they cannot on moral grounds blame anyone when their property is pulled down to pave the way for the construction of a project so dear to the government to take off.

Hon Mensah-Bonsu who was speaking in an exclusive interview on Wontumi Radio on Tuesday recalled that at the planning stage of the project which was very critical strenuous efforts were made to caution all such illegal developers some of who have put up permanent structures like shops to stay away but regrettably they were defiant.

Some of the illegal structures include a chain of shops belonging to a private developer. People nearby say it was constructed with an astonishing speed on a piece of land which is clearly a state property as it forms an extension of the Suame Police station space.


Answering questions from Nana Fokuo Dwemoh, the Suame MP wished that the joy of constructing the four tier-interchange edifice would not be clouded with litigations and agitations especially, from those who have started raising issues about wind pollution.

“There is nothing one can do about some of the incontrollable inconvenience that may accompany the excavation works and emission of pollutants created by the movements of haulage trucks and earth moving equipment as a result of the gigantic project.”

He however assured those likely to be the worst victims of the likely inconvenience to bear with the government and the contractor because once the project starts the expected outcome is its completion “which will be on schedule.”
