Residents in some parts of Kumasi were left stranded after Monday's heavy rainfall which also left some two persons dead.

Major areas including Yenyawoso, Atimponya, AgyeBoat in Manhyia Constituency were flooded, with a number of houses submerged following the downpour.

Hundreds of homes and properties were also destroyed by the downpours.

More than 150 people have been affected and roads and bridges have been badly damaged especially at Yenawoso in Manhyia South Constituency.

In Ajeboat in the Yenyawoso the entire town was submerged under 2m of water.

''We always experience flooding when the rains set in''

''The bridges are small to contain the force from the water and so we appeal to the government for huge pillars to open the bridges to accommodate the overflowing river in the area''

''We have contacted some council members on the issue but they always tell us our location is not captured on the map but during general elections they always find their way here to campaign for votes''

Assembly Member of the area Hon Emmanuel Nti Kyei speaking to silverNEWS reporter described the experience as sad in these trying times and promised to inform the KMA Disaster Management team before the unwanted happens.

''I have already worked on the issue long ago....There have been series of meetings with the Regional feeder roads engineer and they have responded positively by taking demarcations on the necessary extensions from Yenyawoso to Atimponya''

''I have also engaged the Member of Parliament and the residents of the area to find a lasting remedy to the problem''
