Flood

Accra floods again after heavy downpour earlier today.

The national capital Accra was at the mercy of the weather earlier today after principal streets were submerged in water. There was heavy rainfall in the morning and as has been the case over the years, the capital became unmotorable. You could see the movement of human and vehicular traffic became heavily impeded.

Floodwaters have taken over major streets in Accra and some homes. Portions of the Central Business District, Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, Sahara, Odawna, Shiashie, Mateheko, and Kaneshie First Light, among other areas, were all not spared by the floodwaters. The videos posted on social media by people are frightening. What is wrong with us as a country? Why should we still be bedevilled by this problem all these years?

We should not expect different results if we keep doing the same things all the time. It is time we tackle this perennial flood issue, especially in the capital. We must tackle this issue without our political lenses on. This is a national canker.
