On May 20, a demolition exercise was carried out by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly to pave way for the construction of a 60 million dollar fishing harbour at Jamestown(Accra), displacing over 400 squatters.
The rains which started in the late hours of Monday June 8 between 11pm until the early hours of Tuesday morning left most parts of Accra including Adabraka Sahara, Adabraka Timbaland, Adabraka Aponkye among others places flooded.
Meanwhile, Displaced squatters at Jamestown where a demolition exercise was carried out last month to pave way for the construction of a 60 million dollar fishing harbour, had to spend their night in the rains as their structures were pulled down on the may 20 leaving them stranded.
A visit to the area today showed how victims lamented on the impact of the demolition on their livelihoods.
