Korle Lagoon: a "regatta" ground for dead computers and electronic waste from the Agbobloshie E-waste site

By Dr Samuel Armoo, a public health scientist with key interest in the environment

I drive past the Agbobloshie electronic waste (E-waste) site every weekday morning to my office at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research - Water Research Institute, located at the Airport Residential Area in Accra. I use the same route on my return to my residence at Korle Bu (English translation: in the valley of the Korle Lagoon). There is one constant feature: the open fires with their thick black smoke are never extinguished. I stand at night on the top floor of my apartment building at Korle Bu, and this thick smoke from the open fires from the E-waste site is constantly poisoning the air. I am burdened to give voice to what is otherwise people’s livelihood in a region with few other opportunities, because I am a neighboring Ghanaian. Yet I am also a father, who like all parents of young children feel responsible for the wellbeing of future generations. This means being responsible for safeguarding their environment.                                    read more
