Ghana police service storms major tourist sites, beaches and pubs in Ghana. This is due to government instruction to control overcrowding. This exercise is across the whole of Ghana because of the Easter Holidays. The law enforcement agency did not leave the waterfalls in Ghana aside.
Chenku waterfall being the only fall in the Greater Accra Region was not left out. It is usually overcrowded on holidays. The police knowing this, came to ensure that things were in order.
Had it not been for police interventions, the area could become a conducive environment to spread the deadly virus. The temperature at the fall is most times lesser than 30°. The environment is also enclosed due to the rocky nature of the place. This temperature could aid the rapid spread of the virus in case it is present.
It was a culture shock to see police on duty around 6:30 am at the waterfall. This was great news to care, takers, because they couldn’t have handled the pressure alone. The presence of the cops given eternal joy to stewards of the place. They appreciate the efforts of the government and the Dodowa Police Force for the initiative.
While the arrival of the police was termed as good news, it is not a facilitative environment for abusers of ‘Indica’. Caretakers have complained severally to law enforcement bodies about the misuse of marijuana at the tourist site. This act sometimes drives away foreign tourists hence creating a poor image for Ghana. Also, it is an indirect initiation of children into the action whenever they visit the waterfall. The act automatically stopped on police arrival which left the environment in its natural state.
Managers of the Chenku Waterfall wish the police will patrol once in a while after the holiday to check the use of illegal drugs. It has been a major challenge at the tourist site.
