Ghanaian Actress Blasts Ghanaian Leaders Over Perennial Flood In Kumasi

A Ghanaian Actress, Gloria Kani is furious about the way and manner Ghanaian Leaders are handling the key issues affecting the citizens

Speaking after her home at Kumasi got flooded, the outspoken Ghanaian Actress, currently an Evangelist insisted that the Leaders of Ghana only think of themselves and not the wellbeing of the populace who voted for them.

She claimed the country is experiencing perennial flood because of poor leadership and corrupt leaders the country has been having since the days of Independence

Narrating the damage caused by the flood to her home, she explained that the rain destroyed the wall guarding the house and flooded all her rooms.

According to Gloria Kani, Ghanaians pay taxes for nothing because she claimed they see no development upon all the taxes citizens pay.

“This is what we get from the leaders upon all the taxes we pay. God should deal with the leaders of the country”.


In a related development, the newly constructed Kejetia market of Ashanti regional capital Kumasi was flooded due to yesterday heavy rainstorm and the affected traders complained bitterly of poor construction of the structure, therefore, warning the management of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly led by Mr Osei Asibey Antwi to act immediately to solve the situation otherwise they will be hitting the principal street of Kumasi to express their concerns

The whole administration block of the market also flooded with computers and other equipment in the command centre carried to higher ground to prevent damage.

This is the second time the market is experiencing such floods and this time around, it was not only the market inside but its environs including, the central business district of Adum.

Other areas in the city submerged by the flood, including Anloga Junction, Dagomba Line, KNUST and Airport Roundabout.

At Santasi Kokoben and Buokrom, it took hours for the rain to recede to allow a flow of vehicular traffic.

The Officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) who were at the market to assess the extent of the damage caused by the flood said no casualty was recorded.

The heavy rains have so far claimed three lives in the Ashanti Region over the past two months.

The latest is a two-year-old boy who was carried away by the running water at Sawaba, and later found dead.

The aggrieved traders whose properties have been destroyed by the flood appealed to the Metropolitan Chief Executive and the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to assist them.

The Ashanti Region Director of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Mr Kwabena Nsenkyire has appealed to the residents to desist from building on the waterways because it is the way the perennial flood in the city could cease.
