State Housing MD sacked

The Managing Director of the State Housing Company, Dr Mark Nii Akwei Ankrah has been sacked following allegations of misappropriation of funds and embezzlement.

 

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has revealed that the winter jacket he wore in Germany belonged to his wife.

According to General Mosquito as he is affectionately called, “the jacket belongs to my wife and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing it.”

Speaking in an interview with Kumasi based Hello FM, he explained that “the trip was supposed to be for just 3 days and I knew it was cold so instead of going to buy a new jacket I decided to use that of my wife.”

The NDC General Secretary came under public ridicule when he was spotted in a brown female winter jacket with fur around the neck region. He and other party officials joined President Mahama on a trip to Germany where the president held talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Animations and cartoon images were created of General Mosquito in the jacket but he laughed at the comments and said “Why should I go and buy a winter jacket for a trip that would last for only 3 days? I was in Germany to work and not for a fashion show so if Ghanaians want to talk they can go ahead.”

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah dies

Friday, 23 January 2015 10:32

Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has died, royal officials have announced, weeks after he was admitted to hospital.

Credible information reaching tv3network.com indicates that two of the Ghanaians who demonstrated against President Mahama in Germany have been arrested by the Berlin police.

The two were arrested for being illegal residents and not having the right documentation to stay in the Germany.

In a funny twist of events, the two are asking President John Mahama to come to their aid or else they face prison sentence or deportation. Lawyer for the two confirmed the development to tv3network.com but did not give much detail.

Protestors holding placards with all sorts of inscriptions marched in front of the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin, demonstrating against President Mahama who arrived in Berlin, Germany to hold talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The demonstrators said the president was running the country into the ground and needed to sit up. The current power crisis was one of the concerns they raised. They also accused the president of doing less to fight the cocaine menace. Some hurled insults at the president calling him very derogatory names. It was based on this that government described the protestors as supporters of the opposition New Patriotic Party.

The president also met with over 300 Ghanaian business executives, students, traditional leaders, children of Ghanaians living in Germany, some of who are now Germans of Ghanaian Origin and a number of friends of Ghana.
