MzVee, one of Ghana’s beloved artists, has weighed in on the ongoing discussion about flooding in the nation.
In her perspective, citizens should shoulder some of the responsibility due to their irresponsible waste disposal habits.
During an interview on Property FM in Cape Coast, MzVee acknowledged the government’s role, especially in the absence of adequate drainage systems.
Nonetheless, she stressed that citizens should not be absolved of blame because their lack of regard for safety and their haphazard way of living significantly contribute to the flooding problem.
“While our drainage system is in a deplorable state, and the government needs to address that issue, we can’t place the entire blame on the government. Although the government bears a significant portion of the responsibility, I believe citizens must also share in the blame,” she stated.
MzVee also emphasized the crucial role citizens can play in addressing the problem by responsibly disposing of waste, particularly plastic bottles. She called for a sense of responsibility among citizens to combat the issue of floods in the country.
Her comments come in the midst of strong sentiments regarding the government’s performance.
Recently, a pressure group called Democracy Hub organized a 3-day street protest named #OccupyJulorbi house, which gained attention on social media and saw several Ghanaian celebrities joining the call for better governance and proper management of the country’s economy.
