Kasoa: Authorities begin demolition of structures at Liberia Camp

The demolition of the former refugee camp is to pave way for authorities to construct a market, providing a solution for traders affected by the ongoing Kasoa-Winneba Highway project

Demolition of the Liberia Camp has begun following a three-day ultimatum issued by the Gomoa Fetteh Traditional Council for the occupants to vacate the area.

The demolition of the former refugee camp was to pave the way for authorities to construct a market, providing a solution for traders affected by the ongoing Kasoa-Winneba Highway project.

The traditional council had cited previous inaction by the government despite appeals prompting the local authorities to initiate the demolition process.


About Liberia Camp

The Liberia Camp also known as Buduburam is a refugee camp that was established by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 1990.

It housed more than 12,000 Liberian refugees who fled their country at the time during the first Liberian civil war (1989-1996) and the second Liberian civil war (1999–2003), as well as Sierra Leone refugees who fled their civil war (1991–2002).

The camp was set up specifically to handle the influx of Liberian refugees who fled to Ghana.

In January 2012, UNHCR announced the cessation of refugee status for Liberian refugees worldwide from the end of June 2012.

At the beginning of 2012, the Liberian refugees living in Ghana were left with two options: either to repatriate by the end of June 2012 before invocation of the cessation clause or to remain in Ghana through an agreement that existed among the member countries of ECOWAS.
