Some Wakenaam residents were spared from what could have left them in millions of dollars in losses after a fault in the operation of the koker door at Sans Souci village caused flooding to scores of homes and business places.
The koker popularly known as Elephant koker which is in the vicinity of Amin’s fuel station began taking in water rapidly. Before long, water was about 18 inches deep in homes and business places adjacent to the koker.
At that time the residents believed that the door was broken. However, residents’ prayers were answered when a sudden thud above the koker door was felt and the rushing water stopped shortly after 15:30 hrs.
One resident exclaimed that “The door fly”. Literally translated, the door had become unstuck.
Several members of the Wakenaam NDC were at the scene helplessly watching while the water was entering at a rapid rate.
However, losses caused by the initial flow of water would run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.
More than 500 residents including the ranks at the Sans Souci Police Station were affected.
