he exercise was carried out by a team of military and police personnel who supervised the demolition where hundreds of buildings were razed down by the TDC last year in an attempt to vacate occupants of the land leaving thousands of residents including pregnant women to sleep and do household chores in the open.

After a year of forceful eviction and the inhumane act by the Tema city authorities, Pulse.com.gh over the weekend paid a visit to the demolished site to ascertain living conditions of the victims.

Some who spoke to Pulse.com.gh said life has been very difficult living under harsh the conditions. According to a lady who introduced herself as Naa, “It is very difficult living here after we’ve lost all properties during the demolition last year. We were beaten by the rain and our properties have also been destroyed”.

The Speaker of Parliament, Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, last year directed the Parliamentary Select Committee on Works and Housing to investigate the demolished houses and its findings of the report should be laid to the House for it to take a decision on the matter yet, no report was made available to the public.

It is still unclear what TDC intends using the land for after the demolition. Pulse.com.gh will keep you posted.
