The locals there earn their daily livings through rehabilitating electronics and discarded pieces of machinery. It is the largest slum in Accra. It acts as a shelter of many poor people from northern Ghana who are trying to look for greener pastures. The government has isolated the slum even when they are working towards their millennium development goals.
