Businessman and former football administrator, Herbert Amponsah Mensah is mad at past and present governments for failing to curb flooding in Ghana.

According to him, governments have given empty promises and has done nothing to fix the persistent flooding problem in the country.


“I am sad, I am mad and I am enraged because year after years we get promises. Promises that after the next raining season we’ll do X and Y….and it transient governments. Previous government has done it and it comes to this time of the year of the rains, people get flooded, children die, mothers die , the poor suffer and we were told that monies will be released next year…storm drains will be built and we won’t go through this.

“…Then the following year it happens again. Enough is enough, I am tired of it, aren’t you all tired? I am sicken by it,” he bemoaned in a video message posted on Facebook.

Mr. Mensah has charged politicians to serve the purpose for which they were elected into power.

“Politicians must just get off the iron rods. Stop taking it personally and accept the sense of responsibility for which you are voted in power. It happened in the previous government and happened in the government before that. But when life is lost…let alone a hundred lives, it could have been prevented. It is simply not acceptable and I am not happy…I am not happy at all,” he said.

“We need to stand up and ask who is responsible and whoever is responsible from the bottom to the very top must take responsibility. Whether you own a filling station… are you responsible? Or who is it within governments is responsible ultimately for this in taking control of affairs. Enough is enough,” he added. 

A heavy downpour in the capital city last Wednesday has claimed over 100 lives. Several homes in many parts of Accra were flooded whiles commuters were left stranded as most roads were almost impassable. The flood caused heavy vehicular traffic at Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Spintex, Kaneshie and several other places. Most drivers parked their vehicles on the inner and outer pavements to prevent their vehicles from being carried away by the flood.
