Two hours of heavy rains on Wednesday, afternoon, again left parts of Accra inaccessible.
The Member of Parliament for Klottey Korley constituency, Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, in the company of the Municipal Chief Executive and officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation, (NADMO), were in the community to witness the precarious situation the people face.
Many were evacuated by NADMO officials from their homes where they were trapped.
According to Dr. Rawlings, : “The bottom line is that we cannot keep doing this. People’s lives are at risk, people’s property is completely being destroyed, their livelihood being destroyed. People are struggling and it is not right. It is time for real action to fix the problem permanently.”
She urged the government and the city authorities to take pre-season dredging more serious as the spate of dredging when the rains start is almost suicidal.
The MP said the fact that, the dredging is going on now, albeit intermittently is an indictment on all the relevant authorities and unfair to all living in the flood prone areas.
