June 4, 2015 – Accra Ghana Killer Flood 2015: John Dumelo Blames Ghanaians Throwing Rubbish Around
Yesterday a killer flood forced several Ghanaians to seek refuge at a filing station in Accra but sadly the flood later caused a major explosion at the gas station, killing almost all the refugees.
Disturbing photos of a baby and a mother that died in the floor and other gory pictures took the web by storm today as many blamed Ghanaian government for the poor drainage system in the country.
Gallywood actor John Dumelo who is currently in Zambia said poor sanitary habits of most Ghanaians contributed to the flood.
In his words;
“These disturbing pictures from Accra saddens my heart. My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives. Let’s tackle the sanitation issues properly. I think it has more to do with our attitude when it comes to sanitation i.e how we just throw rubbish around, how we dispose and manage the rubbish. No matter how big the drains are constructed, if there’s rubbish, it will block these drains and floods will happen. Together we can make Ghana a better place!”
President Mahama also visited the scene of the explosion today, calling the death toll catastrophic. He offered his condolences to the families of the deceased.
Here are some photos from the scene of the disaster.
West Africa needs divine intervention. Our leaders are getting richer daily while citizens are dying cheaply everyday.
It is painful. RIP to the victims!
