They Have Water To Spray People With But Fire Service Have No Water To Fight Fire – Johnny Hughes

Earlier today, some shops at Makola were razed with fire. The fire is believed to have started around 7am and it took a while for the Fire service to arrive. Even at a time when they arrived their tenders had no water and the fire hydrants at Makola also had no water. It took some intervention for back up tenders to fire and flush water through the buildings that were being razed.

This has created so much debate as to a country like Ghana in the 21st century has Fire Tenders with less or no water. Many have said this is a classic example of why the leaders of the country need to fix the country. Johnny Hughes, a presenter with Media General’s TV3 has posted a satirical tweet. he questioned why the Ghana Police Service has abundant water to pump at protestors while the Ghana Fire Service lacks water to prevent or curb fire outbreaks.

Many have reacted to this post. According to most of the comments it was a sad thing to experience and questioned government’s commitment at transforming the nation. Check out some of the reactions;
