This story, which centers on the small community of Joma, near Ablekuma in Accra, encapsulates issues of encroachment and lack of regard for the law in Ghana as settlements spring up in the buffer zone of a quarry. Lives are clearly at risk because of the rock blasts and the most vulnerable live in the most danger amid a legal battle to stop developments in the area.
