Students of the Kwame Nkumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the Kumasi Polytechnic have been complaining about water shortage on the main campus at Kumasi.

Water supply to these institutions have been disconnected as the Ghana Water Company (GWCL) gets tough on consumers who have defaulted payment of tariffs in the Ashanti Region.

Some of the students said their taps have not been flowing consistently for the past one week.

Officials of the utility provider say clients have failed to pay for about 25 per cent of water they have already consumed.

The Public Relations Officer of the GWCL in the Ashanti region, Sampson Ampah said, the debt owed them by these institutions have cost the company and thus has no option than to cut water supply to the institutions.
