Opposition urges swift relief for Kwakwani residents affected by flooding


The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has expressed its concern regarding the flood situation in Kwakwani, Region Ten.

According to the party, the residents have been faced with untold suffering as a result of the accumulation of water in their homes and villages.

This has been compounded, the party said, by the deterioration of roads, bridges and other critical transportation infrastructure across the Region.

The party is therefore calling on the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government to “take all measures that will bring speedy relief in an effort to alleviate the situation.”

The Civil Defence Commission (CDC) on Friday conducted an initial assessment of the flooded areas in the Kwakwani community.

So far, approximately 300 households have been affected. These are located at Waterfront, Lamp Island, Aroraima and Ginger Island.

The CDC said it will deploy resources as soon as the official community report is completed.
