The Core: Season Two, Episode Seven

Selling water in Accra

The Core Season 2 with GHOne TV presenter, Emeline Nsingi Nkosi continues this week with aspecial edition as Emeline finds out about the distribution process of water.

Emeline spends the day with Banjamin Owusu who explains how water arrives on our table and shows Emeline through the whole process, from unloading the packs of water for various distributors, to selling them in shops and course, hawking on the streets.

Emeline learns that it takes strength to offload the various packs of water all while noting how many packs is given to each distributor and remembering which person is collecting for which stores. Not for the faint hearted, the whole process can take hours of manual strength and mental agility.

Owusu takes us to the shop where Emeline’s maths is tested as an influx of buyers and hawkers arrive for their daily stock to sell which proves difficult to keep on top of when various people are carrying packs of water away in all directions.

The process wouldn’t be complete without Hawking the water on the streets of Accra to bring the water cycle full circle.

The Core is shown every Sunday at 5pm and repeated on Tuesdays at 11am on GHOneTV on DSTV Channel 361. The Core is sponsored by Awake purified drinking Water and Hi5 Choco malt. Awake purified drinking water is the only charity initiative bottled water in Ghana.
