Flooding in many parts of Ghana's capital, Accra, has become more or less an annual ritual. Several places within the city usually gets flooded whenever there is a downpour. Aside the destruction of precious lives as well as properties, these perennial floods also results in the destruction of buildings and vehicles, rendering a lot of people homeless. Even animals such as cattle, sheeps, goats, fowls and dogs are not sparred the rough of these floods. Although Some of the causes of these floods have been largely attributed to poor planning of towns and cities, poor drainage systems, improper or indiscriminate disposal of waste, as well as silting and choking of drains, some attempts have been made by some benevolent individuals to help bring the situation under control. But sometimes, such decisions also get met with strong oppositions.
A typical example of this case is that of Ghanaian politician, proud farmer and movie actor, John Dumelo, whom some few years back wanted to help bring the flooding situation under control at Ayawaso West Wuogon, but was alleged to have been stopped by local authorities.
In a recent tweet, Paa Kwesi recounted how the actor cum politician was stopped from helping to salvage the situation. Papa Kwesi Jr. wrote: "John Dumelo wanted to solve flooding issue in AWW, but the local authorities stopped hm, all because he’s an NDC today we are facing the same challenge".
