Ghana’s Parliament Leaks; Roof Partly Ripped Off After Rainstorm
A part of the roof of Ghana’s Parliament House building has been ripped off by a Tuesday night rainstorm in parts of Accra.
Members of parliament have left the main chamber of the House due to a roof leakage caused by the disaster; thus bringing to an end proceedings on a bill that sought to amend portions of the Local Government Act, our correspondents report.
The extent of the damage is not readily known but our correspondents say the leakage from the roof is likely to affect some electronic gadgets in the House, which some staff were seen trying to safeguard.
Some staff placed mob buckets at the various leaking spots , which were concentrated at the clerks area, to collect the water from the ripped roof.
