When it rains in Accra

By Edmund Smith-Asante

When the the slight drizzle I encountered on my way to work on Friday, June 27, 2014 intensified, little did I know that I was in for a "shockprise", much as the intensity had lasted for only few minutes.
I virtually had to wade through scary floods on the streets. Oh mother Ghana! Where are all our engineers?

  1. Edmund, do not go down the line of blaming some group of people.............We are all involved in building our Motherland............

    Plus the engineers are not solely responsible for planning, resource allocation ...etc

    Myraid factors and stakeholders come to play here. In most cases, Engineers will make the best out of what exists or is given them.
