officials in addressing the perennial floods that constantly cause

havoc in the country.

said these tragedies have become an annual ritual and people in

authority are doing little or nothing to salvage the situation.

and people die and I'm surprised that up till now this is still

happening" she said.

Becca who couldn't hold back her tears, sent her condolences to the

bereaved families and hinted that she and a few other celebrity

friends are putting things in place to supports the families of those

who lost their lives in the fire.

"It's time for you to do the right thing, it's time to put things in

place.You don't have to wait for people to die every year before you

come out to show you care, that is not showingyou care," Becca added.

Asked if she was also hit by the rain,she said, she attended an event

and had to stay in town till 2 am because she received a call warning

her not to bother coming home.

Becca said, "It didn't hit my house but the road to my house and the

fact that it didn't hit my house doesn't mean it didn't hit me."

More than 100 people were killed Wednesday night in a fire and flood

incident at a filling station close to the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in

Accra, as they sought shelter from heavy rains.
