Speaking to ngoketunjiaonline the Fon of Baba I revealed the the floods were caused by the poor construction of the road in Baba I by a road construction company (name withheld). According to the traditional ruler, “I think the damage is enormous and you yourself have seen what has happened here in Baba I, it has created a lot of problems for people, you see people leaving their homes to an unknown place. We are thinking of how to rehabilitate them in other people’s houses. This is due to poor drainage system, when they were constructing the road, we tried to give advice to the company but they said they had their technicians to do it. Before they left, we already started complaining that this will happen. Now it’s happening when they are no long here. I think this is government’s place to decide on what to do with them”. Fon Fue Kemshi II of Baba I, accompanied his subjects to the area.

    What a dismay. God will take control with the lives of the affected brothers and sisters. The rain on that faithful Sunday was really terrible. I was in Baba I at ST. MARK CATHOLIC CHURCH just about 15 meters to Quebessi. I witnessed the nature of the rain. Mr.Journalist thanks for letting the entire world know of this situation in our dealing Division Ngoketunjia and our village Baba I.
