Kedjebi Dubonku: Over 30 residents rendered homeless after rainstorm

This downpour, which began late in the afternoon on Friday (21 June), was accompanied by strong winds and thunderstorms

Over 30 residents in Kedjebi Dubonku in the Oti Region have been rendered homeless following a rainstorm that lasted for three hours.

The downpour which began late Friday (21 June) afternoon caused extensive damage to private residential buildings in the area

Residents who have lost their homes and belongings are now seeking shelter with neighbours who managed to salvage their properties.

They have appealed to authority for urgent assistance.

Meanwhile, district chief executive  of Kadjebi, Wilson Agbanyo has provided some iron sheets and relief items to the victims.

Speaking to Asaase News, Isaac Abavon, the assemblyman for the area, stated that the situation has had a significant impact on the residents and thus requires immediate attention and response.

According to him, the people are farmers and have suffered to put up those buildings but have been brought down by the rainstorm.

“The affected residents are many but the relief items given to them could not help repair their building. A victim is given five pieces of iron sheets and that has even been lowered.”

He has, therefore, appealed to the government and the district assembly, benevolent association to come to the aid of the victims.
