Another Devastating Flood Hits Babessi Sub Division

Home destroyed by yesterday flood
 September 14, 2015 would be remembered by inhabitants of Garri Quarter, Baba I in Babessi Sub Division as the darkest day of the year. This is so because another devastating flood has rendered some households homeless. About 100 persons could be affected by the flood that has damaged 35 houses. When contacted, the Fon of Baba I, HRH Fon Fuekemshi II of Baba I  confirmed that over 35 houses have been affected. HRH Fon Fuekemshi also added that the SDO for Ngoketunjia visited the affected areas and a Commission is expected soon to asses the damages caused by the flood. The population is pointing accusing fingers at SATOM, the road construction company for poor drainage.
House destroyed by flood
It should be recalled that on September 9, 2012, Babessi village recorded an ugly flood that destroyed some 50 houses and rendered 26 families homeless. Tongues are still waging over the whereabout of the money government handed to Ngoketunja SDO Kuela Valery as support to victims. The Eye is aware that part of the money was to be used to resettle the affected population with the creation of a new layout, yet the process is too slow. 

poor drainage?
