Rainfall exposes drainage flaws at Kaneshie, environs


Three-hour downpour on Sunday rendered parts of Kaneshie and its environs flooded while residents pedestrians and motorists were marooned and waited patiently for the floods to subside.

Many homes, petrol service stations, storage facilities and the main Kaneshie market road, Obetsebi Lamptey circle and the Odaw drainage were dangerous areas to tread as flood waters rose to waist level .

When the Ghana News Agency's photo journalists got there, pedestrians and motorist were struggling to navigate the little dry spots and least affected landscapes to reach their various destinations.

Around the Kaneshie market area, market women, shoppers and commuters had to run for cover whilst many from church services had to struggle to join the nearest “trotro” buses to whisk them away to safety.
