Residents of Adabraka Sahara are calling on government and the Member of Parliament for Korley Klottey Constituency Dr Zenator Rawlings to come to their aid since movement has become difficult.
Their call comes after yesterday’s rains which flooded most of the cities in Accra.
Several properties and sometimes lives are lost as a result of the flooding in the area particularly when the Odaw river which flows passes through the community and receives wastewater from other parts of the capital overflows its banks.
Following a downpour on Wednesday afternoon, many residents lost properties and had their places of abode submerged in flood waters.
Some had to be rescued from their homes and shops in boats by some military personnel due to the high current of the rushing floodwaters that had trapped them.
The Adabraka Sahara community has become muddy whiles the only bridge they use has broken down.
Madam Joyce Mensah a resident attributed the flood to attitude of Ghanaians in disposing manages.
Other resident called on government to drain the gutters since the drains are choked with sand and rubbish.
