The inhumane attitude and the knee-jerk response which the Accra Mayor has taken after the recent disaster make a clear case of how lackadaisical we are as a country.

A few days ago, the gateway to Africa was visited by some rainfalls and this has led to disaster which has left many homes, families, individuals, companies and entities with sorrow, loss and devastation.

Not only did the rains cause flooding in many parts of the city. It also caused a fire outbreak at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, killing hundreds of people who were seeking shelter in shops and filling stations.

In the heat of all of these, everyone is talking about the way forward in preventing this from happening in the future. Many have blamed these occurrences on the building of structure in waterways as well as the poor management of refuse by state and individuals.

The rate of indiscipline in Accra and many parts of Ghana is rather on the high side. Indeed, it is these acts of disregard for laid down procedure, ineptitude on the part of some public officials, frustration of developers and undue delay in documentation for the approval of building permit which has led to the placement of many buildings on unapproved places leading to the flooding of the city each time there is slight rain falls.

On the morning of 5th June, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and the Ga West Assembly in an attempt to find solutions to the flooding in the city has began demolishing some structures in Mile 7 and Ga West and in Bukom.

Whiles we agree in principle with the removal of all structures that are on water ways, we are also mindful of the fact that many of the owners of these structures have permits that have been granted by the AMA and its officials.

Is the taskforce of the AMA right in demolishing this structures they claim are on water ways?
