Ghana President, Nana Akufo-Addo has said his government is in the process of sending relief items to Sierra Leone following a tragic mudslide and flooding disaster that has claimed many lives in the West African country.

Saddened by the development Akufo-Addo took to his Twitter handle to make the announcement and expressed his condolences.

“Government is in the process of sending relief items to Sierra Leone to aid in the recovery process,” he tweeted on Thursday.

Health Officials in Sierra Leone say nearly half of the 400 people known to have died in a mudslide and flooding that occurred at the outskirt of the country’s capital Freetown have already been buried.

About 600 people are said to be still missing.

The Sierra Leonean government subsequently postponed the mass burial of the dead bodies to Thursday to allow relatives to identify their loved ones.
