Mr Daniel Asamoah, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Daak Asakop Investment and Waste Management, has attributed the continuous flooding in the country to indiscriminate disposal of waste and building in water ways.
Torrential rains in recent times, caused massive flooding in the capital city of the Greater Accra Region, Kasoa and other parts of the country.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) has cautioned that the rains will be persistent in the coming weeks.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, the sanitation expert, said the perennial flooding at Kasoa and its environs was mainly due to indiscriminate disposal of waste and haphazard developers and that if not halted, the effect will cause massive damage to lives and properties.
He also mentioned climate change as one of the factors of flooding as well as chocked drains, adding, “it is worrying to see people in these time and age dump refuse in the drains each time it rains. This attitude must stop!”
“The change of weather is having a huge effect on the environment as a result of climate change and that “if indiscriminate waste disposal and building in water ways continue unabated, then we have a long way to go”, he added.
