Betty Krosbi Mensah has handed over 30 outboard motors to the fishing and transport enterprise in the Kwahu Afram Plains North District.
The honourable Member of Parliament for the Kwahu Afram Plains North Constituency presented the 40 horsepower Suzuki and Yamaha outboard motors under the auspices of Mr. Prosper Galinor, the NDC chairman of the Constituency.
The outboard motors were government-subsidized ones, aimed at curbing the over-reliance on faulty second-hand outboard motors contributing to the many accidents on the lakes and rivers.
The presentation, which had been planned by the Member of Parliament and her team for while now, offered her the opportunity to also interact with the families of the victims of the recent accident on the Dzemeni-Havorkope stretch of the Volta Lake.
Hon. Betty Krosbi Mensah believes the presentation of the outboard motors will also boost the economic activities of fishing communities and individuals and stated that, others would be added soon.
The presentation was done on Monday, April 18, 2022 at the resident of the Member of Parliament.
