An area known as Fula Town in Grand Cape Mount County is famously known for illegal mining activities. The town has a population of more than 500 inhabitants, but that number usually doubles or triples when there is the discovery of a deposit of gold or diamond according to locals.
Currently, residents in the area are faced with a huge challenge of getting safe and clean drinking water. The only creek near the town is being polluted daily.
Residents said they are constraint to travel 10 to 15-minutes’ walk to fetch water for drinking and other personal use. They want a higher authority to stop the illegal miners because of the harm.
