Former President John Mahama has visited victims of the torrential rains in the Upper East region which claimed 29 lives.

The rains left about 3000 people including women and children displaced.

NADMO is providing relief items to the victims.

In a facebook post, the NDC flagbearer said: I visited communities affected by torrential rains in the Upper East Region on Thursday. Almost 30,000 people including children have, unfortunately, been rendered homeless, with 28 people confirmed dead from the devastation and destruction of houses.

“During the visit, I interacted and consoled those who lost relatives, sympathized with families displaced by the floods, and presented relief items to support the communities in Chiana-Paga, Navrongo, Builsa South and Builsa North areas of the region.

“Accompanied by national, regional and constituency executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), I also paid courtesy calls on the chiefs and elders in the various communities”.
