Two weeks after 87-year-old pensioner Horace Mitchell’s two-bedroom apartment was flooded by recent heavy rain, he is now pleading with the Housing Development Corporation to relocate him to a suitable apartment. He said he hopes it can accommodate not only him but, also his two children.

“Although I am glad they came to my aid and saw the condition my family and I was living in, after meeting with them, I was told they would put me in a one-bedroom apartment located in Belmont," Mitchell said.

He said he cannot move, and his family has nowhere to go.

Mitchell asked, "Where would I place all my stuff from my home? Where would my children go?"

He said he depends on his children for support.
