  • COVID-19: Western Region Records 4 New Cases

    Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has confirmed that his region has recorded four new cases of the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to him, although the new cases were imported, this calls for concern among residents in the Constituency. Addressing Journalists, he said "“We have a case at Agona Nkwanta [in Ahanta West Municipal Assembly], one in Effia Kwesimentstim Municipal, one in Mpohor District and one at Ellembelle District. And like I keep saying, the virus is with us, so we must find innovative ways to manage it. One of the luckiest things I’ve realized is that most of our cases are imported, and so it is our responsibility to make sure it does not spread into the communities.” He added the four new cases has increased the counts to 13.

The medical team are ready to help us in that direction. What is left now is for all of us to be careful about what we do. So, we will continue to stress that we all adhere strictly to the safety protocols” he outlined.

  • Two Traditional Priests In Police Custody For Allegedly Killing A Biochemist consultant

    Two traditional priests are in the custody of the police for allegedly killing a biochemist consultant and siphoning what is suspected to be his blood into a gallon. The deceased Edward Quartey-Papafio, 64, had left his house on January 15, 2020, at about 3:30 am after receiving a phone call. According to the Director-General of the CID, COP Isaac Yeboah, after police investigations, it was discovered that the deceased was last spotted in Adeisu, near Nsawam in the Eastern region. The police intensified investigation, and on April 21, 2020, they arrested suspects Christian Gameli Lawerh alias Power, 36, and Famous Adorkunu alias Scorpion, 37. Both fetish priests hail from the Volta region but reside at Maame Dede near Adeisu. After a search was conducted at their residences, police retrieved two pump action guns, a single barrel gun, together with eleven packets of cartridges from Lawerh’s room. On April 29, both suspects admitted having interacted with the missing person for some time, but he was later shot and killed on January 15, 2020, at their shrine. The suspects reiterated that the deceased was buried at a particular spot within the shrine and led police to the scene. The area was secured for an exhumation order to be granted by the court. On April 30, the police including pathologists and other forensic experts went to Maame Dede and executed the exhumation. The pathologists retrieved the decomposed body from a grave. A second decomposed body whose name the suspect Gameli gave as Kwesi Zomelo also from Kasoa was retrieved from a separate grave. The team later exhumed human parts, hair attachments, bead (belonging to a woman, police suspect), and bones from a third grave within the same perimeter. A decomposed human flesh with bones wrapped in a cloth buried among the bodies was also retrieved from another grave. The team in addition retrieved human skulls together with bones, suspected to be human, hidden under two ‘idols’ in the house. Investigations have so far established that on December 2019, the two conspired to murder Edward Quartey-Papafio, according to police. They are alleged to have lured the deceased to their shrine and succeeded in collecting cash amounting to 10,000 Ghana cedis from him with a promise to fortify the deceased spiritually to enable his company to flourish. On January 15, they invited Quartey-Papafio to the shrine for what they claimed to be the final purification rites but in the process they shot, killed and buried his body. Police say after committing the crime, Lawerh took possession of the deceased’s Itel and Nokia mobile phones and handed them to his third wife, together with a bunch of keys. Police say the second suspect Adorkunu, has confessed that he shot and killed Mr. Quartey-Papafio. He also confessed to killing Zomelo and one of his masons after the deceased demanded money owed him. According to COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, the remains exhumed from the shrine have been deposited at the Police Hospital Mortuary awaiting DNA testing and identification. The suspects have been remanded and are awaiting trial. Source: Myjoyonline.com

  • Jamaica and Ashanti(Akan), One Blood?

    I have always understood that Jamaicans are descendants of enslaved Africans from West Africa & Ghana, and Ashanti in particular, but I never realized just how similar our roots run hundreds of years after slavery. As Brazilians in Salvador de Bahia keep the Yoruba roots of tradition & language alive in modern day Brazil, Jamaican Maroons keep the Ashanti (Akan) traditions & language alive in modern day Jamaica. When Jamaica’s native son Marcus Garvey shouted for Global Africans to return to Africa, many chanted Haile Selassie I &found home & Rastafari roots in Ethiopia while many others celebrated Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah & found freedom in Ghana. Today’s Ghana boast a significant Jamaican community brought & empowered by Rita Marley & the memory & foundation of Bob Marley & Marcus Garvey. Jamaicans & native Ghanaian Rastas have created their own governing & financial empowerment council that boasts a credit union called the black star line catering to the financial empowerment needs of Rastafarians in Ghana. When you walk around Ghana you see Jamaica, from reggae music, to dreadlocks & the culture of Rastafari. I had heard about the Kromanti/Kramanti language in Jamaica which was supposed to sound similar to the Akan languages of Ghana, but I became a true believer when I heard it spoken & found many similar words in Ghanaian Akan languages. Jamaicans like Brazilians have never denied their African roots, but have rather embraced it & used it as a sense of power in knowing who they are & where they came from beyond Jamaica’s sugar cane plantations. With more & more talk amongst African nations about offering our Diasporan brothers & sisters free visas & dual citizenships to come back home to their ancestral roots, perhaps we will all get to learn more about our distant relatives. Many Africans & Diasporans did not know of Haiti‘s history of successful slave rebellion which led them to independence in 1804 even before slavery was abolished in 1807 until the earthquake that brought Haiti new found global press & historical interest, just as many do not know that Jamaican Maroons had their own successful slave rebellion to freedom 50 years before slavery was abolished & long before Toussaint L’Ouverture brought Saint-Domingue out of the shackles of the French & renamed the new land of freed slaves, Haiti. The Maroons of Jamaica have been able to keep their identity & autonomy not only from their former slave masters, but also within Jamaica even til today. The Maroons’ largest town Accompong even has a similar name to Ghana’s Akropong-which is home to one of Ghana’s oldest tribes, the Akuapims & both are ironically located in the hills/mountains of their individual nations. We can not wait nor allow others to tell us our history & to give it to us in small increments as they see fit when knowledge is power & information is available if we truly seek to be empowered by knowledge . “I raved about how much African aesthetic is infused into Jamaican life. You’d think I was visiting the island for the first time, even though I was born here and have barely set foot anywhere else since that sun-hot Wenesday in 1972…The thing is this; African retentions in our culture sometimes get compartmentalized and thought of in ways that seem distant. Yes, over 90% of Jamaicans are black and are direct desendants of the people who came from West Africa, so when we look at each other we see our ancestry…” I remember the first time I went to Jamaica right out of college & met up with two Rasta men who befriended me & took care of me & my friend as community elders do in Ghana. The moment they heard I was from Ghana , I automatically became family & was blessed with eating the best jerk chicken I have ever tasted in my entire life even until today. I have eaten a lot of jerk chicken in Jamaica & other places in the world, but this was hands down the best because from the smell, to the serving of it, to the taste, you could see & feel that it came from the love of family in the way that a home cooked meal outshines even the best highly trained chef. I did not understand back then why these two grown men were so fascinated with asking me every question possible about Ghana & why their desire to go there was so strong until many years later when I witnessed the Jamaican community & influence in Ghana &saw the love that Ghanaians, particularly the youth gave to Jamaican artists who visited & Jamaican citizens who returned back to Ghana to stay because these Ghanaian youth were just as enamored by them & wanted to know everything possible about them & our mutual ancestral global connection. It was truly as Nas & Damian “Junior Gong” Marley put it, distant relatives reuniting on two sides of the Atlantic & getting to know one another again. From Marley, to Tosh, to Sizzla, to Junior Reid, to Buju, to the new generation Marley, Africa & Ghana in particular has always been in the forefront of their life never to take a backseat in heritage or unity! Akwaaba as we continue to keep it strictly Roots! Credit: Amma Sarfo

  • Dome Kwabenya Constituency: "NHIA Office Will Cost GHc1.5 Million" - Hon. Adwoa Safo

    Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has cut sod for the construction of a One Million and Five Hundred Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc1,500,000.00) National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) District Office in the Constituency. According to her, the new edifice when completed will not only benefit the constituents but the staffs as they will move from the old small office store which made their operations difficult and delivery of services restricted. Addressing Journalists at the sod-cutting ceremony, the MP said "Currently, the existing National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Office is a sub-office which is a small office store at Dome. This makes operations difficult and the delivery of its services restricted. This constituency is a fast growing metropolitan one with a large population size. Therefore, there is the need to construct a District National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Office in the constituency to mitigate against the current situation at hand" She added she is confident the construction when completed, will enhance the effective delivery of the health insurance to the masses in a more spacious and properly structured office. The MP further explained the ceremony is to reinforce the broader objective of Government's effort to provide infrastructure for the delivery of effective healthcare nationwide.

Adwoa Safo explained she has commissioned the Ga East Municipal Hospital, cut sod to commence the construction of Clinical Service and Out Patients Department (OPD) Block at the Abokobi Health Centre. She said "It is my belief that with the construction of this NHIA building, the health needs of constituents will be best served. The contractor of this project is, Messrs Elpizo Enterprise Limited. This project is expected to be completed within Six (6) calendar months" The MP urged the contractor to show immense commitment and hard work for the speedy completion of this project without compromising on quality of the work. Hon. Adwoa Safo says the edifice when completed will have a reception area, general offices, documents control room, MIS office, accounts office, manager’s office, conference room and other amenities including vehicle parking area for patrons. Contractor, Messrs Elpizo Enterprise Limited assured the MP, the project will be completed on time. In other developments, the Member of Parliament also pleaded with Philanthropists, Constituents and Individuals to contribute their quota in the construction of a Fire Service Station in the Constituency She said "This is a collective efforts. I am urging Philanthropists, Constituents and Individuals to contribute their quota so we can build our own Fire Service Station. We cant be depending of Madina and the likes always" Director-In-Charge of Logistics at the Ghana Fire Service, DCFO Nana Brenya commended the MP for the good works adding the construction of a Fire Station will help solve issues of fire outbreaks in the Constituency. He said "Fire is a destroyer although we always say it is a good servant. So the presence of the Fire Station around this area is going to ensure that fires are prevented and even if they come, they are kept at a very minimal level" The construction of the National Health Insurance Authourity (NHIA) District Office in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency will be completed after 6 months. Some shop owners who spoke to thinknewsonline.com said "We have been notified of the construction of an NHIA District Office and Fire Station here. It is good but to ask us to relocate our shop immediately will be a big blow to us. The Municipal Assembly should be a bit patient with us" The MP later presented bags of rice, a galloon of sanitizer, 1 Veronica bucket with its stand, biscuits, washing soaps among other to the mechanics who share a wall with the yet to be constructed NHIA District Office and Fire Station.

  • World Health Organisation RefRefuses To Acknowledge Coronavirus Treatment From Madagascar

    World Health Organisation (WHO) has refused to acknowledge the corona virus treatment from Madagascar because "a vaccine is very unlikely to come from Africa", numerous international media have reported. Madagascar stunned the world last week when President Andry Rajoelina launched the miracle "covid-organics" - a herbal tonic, that has helped the country subdue covid-19 and stamp its authority over a global pandemic that has made nonsense of the muscles of France, US, Italy, Spain, UK, & Iran, put together. And in spite of normalcy returning to the island country, and schoolchildren resuming studies following a first of its kind plant-based tonic that's proven effective both in profilaxis, i.e. preventive and curative, WHO says a cure from an African address can't be trusted. The herbal medicine developed by the country's Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (MIAR) contains Artemisia - a plant cultivated on the island and used in the fight against malaria. Madagascar has a land mass of about 587,041sqkm and a population of around 27 million. It reported its index cases on March 23 with 9 confirmed patients and by April 19 had a total of 121 cases, 59 recoveries, and no deaths, as at April 24. It’s been 5 days now and no new case has been recorded in the country. Yet WHO isn't convinced. Their only contention now is that the vaccine is locally made, and African. The argument is no longer whether it produces results. But what exactly is Madagascar doing differently? * Testing and contact tracing is devoid of politics. * Schoolchildren receive compulsorily small doses of the tonic throughout the day, as they prepare to return to school, Wednesday. * The plant-based tonic is also being distributed free to the most vulnerable in the country, and sold at very low prices to others. * Wealthy and financially strong Madagascans, politicians, and legislators, purchase the tonic and make donations as their contribution towards funding more research. * BBC reports scores of locals trooping out to receive the tonic, as no lockdown is in place. * The country hasn't welcome any "outside" assistance. * Their lab scientists, medicine professors, consultants and doctors converged in labs working their socks out, while their counterparts in the rest Africa were dressed in 3-piece suits, tuxedos and pyjamas, drinking choice wines, turning on swivel chairs, watching TV and ordering that as few tests as possible be conducted, so as not to paint their regions black and shame their emperors! * Scientists in the country presented their finding to their President who happily went on national TV and took doses of the syrup, discovered, processed, made and bottled from their research labs. * All proceeds from sales of the medicine is to be pushed back into their science research institutes. Make no mistake! As long as a covid19 vaccine isn't found in the so-called saner climes, WHO may well not okay it! Take it or leave it. I'm not a scientist, but whatever is in those Madagascan bottles, even if it cures a million people a day, won't make sense to WHO, because its African, local and black! Simplicitas. As usual, they want the patent, franchise, and proprietary to be domiciled in some Western address - America, UK, Canada, Israel, Norway and even Latin America. Name them. Don't be deceived! Those guys had already written us off! Long ago. With over 2000 dropping dead daily in the US alone, Melinda Gates could only see dead bodies lining the streets of Africa. It's foolishness. But that mentality isn't new! What bothers me, though, is why African leaders seem to be giving their imprimatur to her doomsday hallucinations. Rubber stamps, if you ask me! You doubt, abi! Ok, why are African heads still yet to rally round Madagascar and give this therapy a global shot? Tell me! The West sure have an agenda, but that agenda can't work without our culpable consent! Africa, please it's time to arise! We fought and won the war against the dreaded Ebola. WHO did not give is any credits and we didn't mind! We will win again, even against covid19. Collectively and in unity. Source: #AI🇳🇬 Disclaimer: The content in this article are words not authored by Management of thinknewsonline.com

  • "Ghana Could Have Won World Cup If I Was Treated Well" - Don Bortey

    Former Accra Hearts of Oak winger, Bernard Don Bortey has revealed that Ghanaians did not help him when he was playing for the national teams. In an interview with Oteng Appau Papin on Onua FM, the Humble Lion, as he was nicknamed, said Ghana could have won the world cup with him if he was handled well. There were a lot of rumours that he was a bad influence in camp and that really affected his career as a footballer. “I am a prophet but people didn’t believe me,” he said. “God brought me here on earth to win trophies for Ghana. Whatever, I say I would do, I make sure it’s done, in one of the matches that I played. “I predicted I would score four goals and it came to pass. It is not easy to score four goals in one game,” he recounted. According to him, he started playing for the Black Stars with great players like Sam Johnson and Augustine Arhinful and was not afraid of being in camp with them because he was confident. Dada Don Bortey aside playing for Accra Hearts of Oak in Ghana, played for Santos FC in South Africa and Panthers in Equatorial Guinea at club level. He also played at all levels of the national teams. Source: 3 News

  • "Debunk Their Fake Allegations, Plots To Distabilise NDC" - Former Chairman Refutes Allegation

    The Immediate Past Chairman of the Effutu Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Paa Nii Lamptey has denied allegations that he orchestrated attacks on some aggrieved suspended members of the Party. In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Winneba, Paa Nii Lamptey described the allegations as false and a plot to destabilise the Party, which was advancing for victory in this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections. He said on Wednesday, April 22, he received a call from some members of the Party that a group of suspended members had decided to hold a press conference to express displeasure on the manner they were suspended and to protest the candidature of Dr James Kofi Annan to lead the Party in the Constituency. He said considering the COVID-19 directives on movement and public gatherings, he advised against the conference and alerted the police in order not to be seen as violating the President’s directive. The NDC, he noted, had a Constitution, which regulated affairs of its members and allowing them to hold the conference would not augur well for the Party. Paa Nii Lamptey said he made a report to the police and while at the Party office with the station officer, information reached them that the group was at a nearby church holding the press conference without observing the Government’s directives. “As a result some of the police went there to enforce the social gathering protocol because of their numbers but on seeing the police, they dispersed.” He questioned how a person who was championing the welfare of the people and the image of the Party would orchestrate attacks on members adding that the Police were his witnesses.
