Ghana’s favorite artist, MzVee has shared her opinion in the ongoing debate about flooding in the country.
In her view, citizens should share some of the responsibility due to irresponsible waste disposal practices.
During an interview on Property FM in Cape Coast, MzVee acknowledged the government’s role, particularly in the absence of proper drainage systems.
However, she emphasized that citizens cannot be exempt from blame, as their disregard for safety and haphazard way of living significantly contribute to the flooding issue.
“Our drainage system is really horrible, and the government has to look at that. We can’t blame everything on the government, although the government is to be blamed a lot, but I feel the citizens must also take the blame.
“If you see the amount of plastic bottles, I don’t think the government came to put them there, so I think we’re all to blame for these things,” she remarked.
MzVee also highlighted the vital role citizens 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 amid strong sentiments over the performance of the government.
Recently, a pressure group named Democracy Hub embarked on a 3-day street protest dubbed #OccupyJulorbi house which gained traction on social media and saw a number of Ghanaian celebrities join the call for better government and a proper handling of the country’s economy.
