Today, I write with a heavy heart. Almost the whole of Accra (the capital of Ghana) is flooded and it is terribly sad.
A lot of people have been rendered homeless, parents are screaming and searching for their lost kids. Read a friends update on FB today and he said the president should call for a state of emergency. Do you agree? Even if he does, will (calling a state of emergency) solve the problem knowing the rains will not stop falling? I think we need a very pro-active government structure all over Africa. A structure that does not have to wait for people to die before decisive actions are taken to deal the menace of floods in our cities. We have ministries and government organisations which are supposed to take care of issues like this. Can we not plan ahead of the next rainy season in order to make sure that the events of this year do not re-occur?
A number of people have been reported dead including this sweet friend of mine on FB...
These are a few pictures I got. Please see and estimate for yourself the amount of damage and loss this flood left behind. Thank you for reading.
