Once more, tidal surges have forced several Keta villagers out of their homes in the Volta Region.
Many people are now homeless as a result of the Tuesday, September 19, 2023 tragedy.
The Aborigines Hotel along the Sea, Jerekope, Kedzikope, Abutiakope, and Tameklobome are some of the properties that are affected.
Godknows Bleboo, the Keta Municipal NADMO Director, claimed to have visited the affected districts in an interview with Adom News.
Mr. Bleboo bemoaned the sea’s ongoing devastation and added that the spillover from the Akosombo Dam had made matters worse by flooding a number of residences.
Following the event, the head of NADMO has urged those who dwell near to the water to move somewhere safer or to stay with family in the city.
Every year, tidal waves do terrible damage to the people of Keta and the nearby communities.
Schools were shuttered in March 2021, leaving citizens unemployed and destitute.
Following a comparable occurrence in November 2021, tidal waves destroyed at least 3,000 people’s homes in the Keta municipality, leaving them homeless.
Communities like Abutiakope, Kedzikope, and Keta Central were the most severely impacted since the homeless people there had nothing left to save.
The tidal surges completely demolished the homes of the affected inhabitants, who were mostly women and children.
Following the event in November, Francis Asenso-Boakye, Minister of Works and Housing, said that the Finance Ministry will provide funding for the building of the second section of the Keta sea defense wall.
He further stated that the Ministry has completed its assessment of the pertinent suggestions in order for construction to start.
After almost two years, this promise has not yet materialized.
