    Excerpt from the Ghana News Agency article:

    The increasing slums in African cities, Ghana included is due to the rising number of people moving from rural centres to the urban centre, Dr Calvin Atewamba, Research Fellow, United Nations University said on Wednesday in Accra.

    He said there was the need to expand the infrastructure base like toilets, to cater for new people coming into the cities, adding, in Ghana there are areas in places like East Legon, where people live in slums, without pipe-borne water and toilet facilities.
