Despite the disruption of the Peoples’ Assembly at Obuasi Thursday, June 8, 2023, residents waited till the show commenced later in the afternoon for them to air their grievances.

With unemployment being the major problem confronting the residents, some youth who spoke on the afternoon complained about the deplorable state of the community amid the lack of jobs for the residents.

A young man who spoke to Afia Tagor said he is bemused the same Anglogold Ashanti is in South Africa but residents there are not suffering just as Obuasi indigenes are.

According to him, the rate of development at Obuasi is nothing comparable to that of Johannesburg where the same Anglogold mines gold.

He wants leadership to address the unemployment problem and develop Obuasi to avoid the wrath of the youth.
