Rainstorm destruction

A seven-year-old kindergarten pupil of Manguotsonya District Assembly Basic School died, five persons sustained injuries and many others were rendered homeless.

This was as a result of a downpour and rainstorm that hit five communities in the Ningo Traditional Area last Monday.

The rainstorm, which started in the evening lasted two hours and destroyed school buildings, more than 50 houses and uprooted trees in Kpongunor, Ayetepa, Lekpongunor, Tsopoli and Manguotsonya.

Mr Enoch Teye Mensah, Minister for

Water Resources, Works and Housing, toured the affected communities to sympathise with the affected people and to ascertain the level of destruction.

He advised the people to build at authorised places, using good quality materials and to plant trees to serve as wind break.

Mr Mensah said that Government would take immediate measures through the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), to solve the situation.

He presented GHC200 to the family of the deceased for the funeral.

Mr Moses Dahama, NADMO Coordinator for Dawa Zone, said the rainstorm affected school buildings, teachers’ bungalows, houses, kiosks, and trees.

He assured the residents that NADMO would assist the people after assessment of the situation.
