Photos: Bawumia tours Sierra Leonean disaster site

Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has visited the Sierra Leonean town where at least 400 people died after Monday’s mudslide and flooding.
In the company of Sierra Leonean Vice President, Victor Bockarie Foh, Ghana’s second gentleman was taken through what led to the tragedy.

More than 400 people died, with over 600 others missing after a mudslide swept away homes in the largest slum in Freetown, Regent.

Local journalists reported seeing a massive red opening when a section of Mount Sugar Loaf located in the village caved in.

In a show of solidarity, the government of Ghana dispatched officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) to lead relief mission in the West African country.

Items donated by Ghana government include food, medicines, clothes and logistics.

Dr Bawumia handed the items to the Vice President of Sierra Leone.

The two Vice Presidents were accompanied by officials of their governments.
