The Kintampo Waterfalls is scheduled to be opened to the general public four months after it was shut down.
The facility which has in the past been in a very deplorable state due to neglect and lack of maintenance will be made more friendlier and safer this time around as it prepares to resume operations in October 2017.
According to the Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister, Catherine Afeku, plans are far advanced to revamp the centre as well other tourists sites which are in a poor state.
“We have had updates that the Kintampo waterfalls that we shut down as a result of safety issues will be operational between September and October. Work is seriously in progress. It’s the same thing we are doing at most of the tourist sites.”
The Kintampo Waterfalls was closed down in March 2017 following a freak accident which led to the death of twenty revelers.
The revelers mostly students from the Wenchi Senior High (WESS) and the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) who were there on an excursion were in the pool swimming when the tree fell on them killing some and injuring several others.
