Hundreds of cars parked on various streets, nooks and crannies of Accra have submerged under water as it rained cats and dogs in Accra at the late hours of Saturday, 21st May, 2022.
To what seems as an annual festival in Ghana, most parts of Ghana especially Accra floods when it rains particularly due to poor drainage systems or human activities.
Although this festival of floods are celebrated each year coupled with government making promises to solve it, it still remains a music on repeat as it’ s been played every year. Saturday’ s version of the perennial rains saw cars sinking, properties been swept away by rains, lives endangered and houses flooded all over.
Images shared by victims of this flood showed instances where water drove people out of their living rooms with some having to rent their rooms to flooded water.
Amidst the unfortunate happening, some social media users shared their opinions below. ” This is nt funny. . are those cars sinking having peeps in it. . i pray for safety in flooded areas hmmmm.
Only if the brains of some people could be reset especially those who throw and dump rubbish in gutters and those who build on water ways. We are not surprise cos it happens every year & our leaders are so reluctant to do smth about it. . . Nyame hu yɛn mmɔbɔ
In the heat of the floods hitting Accra, Ghanaians have started a campaign which seems for the relocation of Ghana’s capital from Accra to Cape Coast. “ACCRA is chocked relocate the capital city back to Cape Coast. Change the capital to a new region. Egypt is doing it, we too can. Accrais over crowded with high human population and unnecessary buildings. Reduce the population there by shifting the capital to a different city or segment the country” social media users commented.
