One of the victims said, “it started in the form of a storm and the rains followed, suddenly the storm came in a very wild manner and we saw roofs of houses started flying and other houses falling. As I speak with you, people’s homes are full of water, the roofs have also been ompletely ripped off and they cannot find places to lay their heads, their belongings have all destroyed.”
They called on government and other benevolent organizations to assist them reroof their houses and build the collapsed ones.
“We are appealing to the authority to come to our aid so that we will be able to get our houses re-roofed.”
