'I have nowhere to go' - Single mother breaks down after TDC ejection

The Tema Development Corporation (TDC) has rendered over 200 people who were occupying its Kaiser Flats, homeless.

The forceful ejection Thursday followed a court order directing the Corporation to pull down structures that are more than 50-years-old on its territory.

But the action will see many people including a single mother and her two-year-old son being at the mercy of the vagaries of the weather because they have nowhere to go.

"I don't know where my son and I will sleep this evening," the woman who identified herself as Nadia Blankson told Myjoyonline.com's David Andoh.

Officials of TDC had said the tenants were given enough time to move out of the flat, but Ms Blankson has contradicted it.

She told the reporter the three-month notice given them had not expired before their forceful ejection.
