Members of the West Mamprusi Municipal Assembly in the North East Region have descended on the area police commander, following growing spate of highway robbery attacks in the region.

The armed gangs according to these assemblymen, are targeting market women and other road users in their localities. 

The health of children in the Mamprusi West District has improved remarkably over the past 30 years. Measles is a thing of the past, mothers are very much aware of health problems and what to do in order to prevent convulsion when the children have a fever.

They know how to prepare the weaning diet, Mrs. Dora Schnecbelis, a Swiss, said this after a one week evaluation of the welfare of women and children in five communities in the district.
