Sad news coming out of Ghana this morning as the torrential downpour that started last week is not slowing down.

No fewer than 10 in the last 24 hours.
Eight of those reported fatalities are children in the four days of floods that have swamped the capital, Accra, and much of the central region.

And there is anger across Accra where residents complain that the dredging of drainage systems, is affecting smaller drains, that have to be de-silted manually by residents.
The downpour came, a year after over 150 people were killed in Accra, following an explosion at a petrol station, where people were seeking shelter during heavy rains.

  • The African leaders are too self centred, religious is not the problem the are heartless and reprobate mind, no transparency in governance, they don’t fear God nor have human feelings. Take examples like their children are not schooling in the country they’re ruling, they loot out money billions of dollars to foreign account, their wives shop abroad, they buy expensive cars for girl friends and concubine’s. Even were they hail from is not accessible by vehicles, lack of stable electricity, lack of hospitals, no infrastructure etc. All the Africa summit are void of truth and they should move to call for what I called re-colony not from British but from either America,Germany or France. I have my reasons why British was out of my selection. African leaders stop acting uncivilization, stop fraud stop looting God will judge both the living and the dead.Thanks
