Keta Municipal, with Keta the Administrative capital is one twenty five (25) Municipalities and Districts in the Volta Region of Ghana. It was carved out of the former Anlo District, which also comprised Akatsi and Ketu Districts. The Municipality lies within Longitudes 0.30E and 1.05E and Latitudes 5.45N and 6.005N. It is located east of the Volta estuary, about 160km to the east of Accra, off the Accra-Aflao main road. It shares common borders with Akatsi South District to the north, Ketu South District to the east, South Tongu District to the west and the Gulf of Guinea to the south. Out of the total surface area of 1,086km2, approximately 362km2 (about 30 per cent) is covered by water bodies. The largest of these is Keta Lagoon, which is about 12 km at its widest section and 32km long. Hence, the remaining land area is only 724km2 a situation which creates severe constraints on access to land for development in the municipality. However, fishing and water transportation potentials exist.
chief executive's message
The Keta Municipal Assembly with population of 133,661 is mainly an agrarian economy.
As the political head of the assembly, my objective is to build a vibrant municipality where all business activities will grow without difficulties.
Nevertheless, the assembly has identified all the agro-based industries in the municipality such as fish processing, cassava processing, sugar-cane juice processing and coconut oil extraction. The rest are the salt mining, sand weaning as well as carpentry all under one roof.
The Member of Parliament for Keta, Mr. Richard Quashigah has pledged to do his best to support the Keta Municipal Assembly to get to a level that would enable it provide the best healthcare to people in the Municipality.
