Famous Ghanaian musician MzVee has defended the Government and blamed the populace for the “curse” of ongoing floods the nation experiences.
The “Come and See My Moda” artist claims that, rather than the government’s inaction, irresponsible waste disposal by citizens, particularly that of plastic waste and bottles, has been the main cause of recurring flooding.
Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda, better known by her stage name MzVee, voiced her worries about floods and how it could endanger people’s lives in a recent interview on Property FM in Cape Coast.
She admitted that while the lack of a good drainage system put some of the blame on the government, the residents couldn’t be exonerated of the issues as their disdain for safety and careless way of life were a key contributor to flooding.
“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 said.
She continued by highlighting the role that residents have in reducing the issue by improperly disposing of waste, particularly plastic bottles, and she urged citizens to take responsibility for the country’s flood crisis.
