Ghana does not experience the hurricanes nor cyclones. If just an hour downpour could flood to this levels, imagine what will happen if it rains beyond 3 days ( say one week).
Few months ago Mozambique went through terrible times. Had to go through consistent raining for more than 3 weeks with it’s attendant heavy winds, the nature of flooding wasn’t as big as Ghana’s just an hour comparatively.
After a few separate days of minutes of rains that got Accra in particular , Kumasi and few others flooded, the media has stopped talking about it.
The clergy, Chiefs didn’t see nor hear there were floods and many people have died as a result.
As usual,the noise making, unproductive, politicians with no conscience are ‘cashing in’ on the vulnerability of poor citizens. Making political capital out of the National shame, pains, frustration of the people.
We even don’t see this ugly development as a problem. Like how we have comfortably accepted to live in filth, how we stayed like Egyptian mummies to allow okada become a part of our transport system, allowed people ( locals and Nationals) to sell anywhere they want, this flooding believe me has also become ‘ a decoration’ and won’t go away.
But mind you as it killed hundreds of poor citizens on June 3, 2015, and keeps killing; someday it shall wipe all of us out at a go.
