President of the Ga traditional council, Nuumo Akwaa Mensah has predicted that Accra is likely to face more disasters following what he says is the wanton disregard for the ban on drumming and noise making ahead of the Homowo festival.
According to Nuumo Akwaa Mensah the gods have been offended by the continuous violation of the ban announced every year by Council to create a congenial environment to offer prayers to the gods for abundant rain. He made the comments Friday, exactly a year after 150 people died in a horrific flood and fire disaster that struck at the heart of the City centre at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle on June 3.
"Last year we all witnessed to series of disasters. The demonstrations that were organised by the youth dubbed dumsor vigil is absolutely the cause of the disaster we had. If everybody knows that thing was wrong and it was done in the wrong time, nobody needs to be blamed for that. Look at the number of lives that we lost, yet still it happened again, and again and we are facing the consequences and we are still not trying to go by the rules. Anything could happen; the feeling is there that we have offended the gods and something will surely happen," he predicted.
