Heavy Down Pour Affects Ashanti Communities
Stories from Ernest Best Anane
Roofs of local schools were also ripped off, while some individuals were rendered homeless by the storm.
The disaster has compelled teachers and pupils to take their classes under trees.
A 3-unit classroom, office, store and a place of convenience of the Kodie D/A Junior High School, part of Aduman D/A Primary A&B and Junior High School buildings and other houses in the district were also affected.
Mr. Opong Kyekyeku Kaakyire, District Chief Executive, noted that the incident was a setback to his administration, because the district was one of the deprived, and he had been trying hard to meet the developmental needs of the people, in terms of infrastructure.
He appealed to the general public, National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), benevolent institutions, and corporate bodies and organisations to come to their aid, as the Assembly is making efforts to assist the affected communities by providing roofing sheets, cement and other materials to help the victims resettle.
