But after inspecting the extent of damage caused by the floods, Western Regional Minister indicated that people who live in flood-prone areas must always have a plan B when the rains start.

He said “those who stay in flood-prone areas, they should always have a plan B. When it starts raining you should move to your sister or your brother or something for a week or two so that when the rain subsides, you come back home”.

Meanwhile, the Minister has blamed the recent flood on engineering issues.

“We’ve come to realize that there are some sinks in this area and over time the lands have been sold and permits have been given by the Assembly for people to build on.

“But looking at the situation so far, it is an engineering problem and the engineers will have to come and get us some huge storm drains so that rainwater will be able to be transferred from uphill to downhill into the Whin River,” he told journalists on Wednesday.
