Wall of Rawlings’ Ridge residence broken after downpour

A former Head of State, Jerry John Rawlings, was also not spared by the Friday Morning downpour in the national capital Accra, as the walls of his Ridge Residence was toppled by the storm.

The collapsed walls, sighted by Citi News, resembled the remnants of an Accra Metropolitan Assembly demolition exercise.

There are currently at least four police officers at the residence, but the former President’s security detail declined to speak to Citi News.

Many parts of Accra were submerged in flood waters, curtailing vehicular movement after the hours of rain.

Drivers were forced to make detours while others parked their vehicles due to the pool of flood waters on major highways.

Areas such as Teshie-Nungua, Lapaz, Shiashie, Darkuman and Kaneshie were some of the heaviest affected.

The flood waters also brought to the fore the capital’s sanitation troubles with all kinds of debris and filth being washed onto the streets.
