Due to the severe water shortage, many are now using sachet water for bathing and cooking, which further strains their already limited resources.

The main water supplies for those who live on Tamale Township’s periphery—boilers and dams—are running dry.

Local businesses that sell porridge (Koko) and chop bars are among those who have been impacted by the water shortage.

Muslims require extra water for extensive cooking, drinking, ablution, and other household uses during the holy month of Ramadan.

Water is a necessary element for the proper functioning of the human body, therefore drink plenty of it this fortunate month.

The Ghana Water Company (GWCL) is said to have persisted in charging customers for water that was not supplied despite the current water crisis.

As a temporary fix, Dr. Clifford Braimah, the Managing Director of the Ghana Water Company, has alluded to intentions to drill additional boreholes in the Tamale Metropolis.

Residents of the impacted communities who are angry over the prolonged situation have been given notice to start ongoing rallies.

On February 13, 2024, the MPs representing Tamale South, Tamale Central, and Tamale North constituencies lamented the Tamale water issue and demanded that the government respond quickly.

Raising the alarm and pleading with duty bearers to address the ongoing issue were Haruna Iddrisu for Tamale South, Murtala Mohammed for Tamale Central, and Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini on the floor of Parliament.
