GU’GA RAINS LEFT LAKE-LIKE PONDS ON GAROWE STREETS

GAROWE, May 21, 2019

Perhaps other urban centres of Puntland are suffering from the same conditions in the absence of town drainage and sewage system.

GAROWE, the Capital City of the State of Puntland, which boasts of being the best city in town planning in entire Somalia, is now a keeper of ponds or semi-lakes along the streets, making difficult for the pedestrians to move or walk around, following heavy GU rainfall in the past several weeks.

Now that the Governments of Puntland and City of GAROWE are witnesses to what is happening in the streets, and annoying splashes of muddy street water on people trying to dodge the inconsiderate speeding habits of some drivers, it is high time to do some work to handle the situation. Garowe streets are unwalkable during rainy seasons.

Unacceptable proposition is that some of the best hotels in town are flooded too when it rains because of poor construction of lobby pavements. Civil engineers should take note of this professional fault
