Kumasi, the then ‘Garden City of West Africa’, is known to be the second largest city in Ghana with a population of about 1.9 million. She was gracefully worshipped as the queen and goddess of cleanliness. Is she still the goddess of beauty?
The entire city had sat on a bomb of waste for like decades. There were no appropriate mechanisms installed for getting rid of the waste generated. Thanks to the Urban Solid Waste Management Systems in the city who with their greatest efforts have helped solve this great environmental hazard with their technological innovations. The Dompoase engineered landfill site in Kumasi which was constructed by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly in the year 2004 to address waste disposal problems seems to have consigned the problem to history; at least for about 25 years.

We always anticipate the most celebrated scientists in history to have been educated at the best schools and finest universities in the world; but history does not justify these convictions. Michael faraday, a British born known famously for his invention of the first davy lamp and other important scientific accomplishments, left school before he’d completed fourth grade. Yet this renowned chemist is still remembered as one of the greatest scientist and his formulations are now still used in scientific works. Alexander Bell, a Scottish born who invented the first telecommunication device, also had a similar situation of leaving school at age 15, completing only the first forms. His school records were undistinguished, marked by absenteeism and lackluster grades. His main interest remained in science; especially biology while he treated other subjects with indifference. Notwithstanding his educational status, his presidios invention was accepted and had now led to the establishments of modern telecommunication devices.
