Government has increased the Peace Keeping allowance for personnel of the Ghana Army from $31 to $35 effective January 1 this year.

Government is also amending the Armed Forces regulation of 1986 LI 1332 to review the service years of personnel of the forces from 25 to 30 years.

Ghana has signed an agreement with the government of Mauritius to ensure that its investors will not be taxed twice by the two countries and vice-versa.

Known as the Double Taxation Avoidance agreement (DTA), the both Foreign Affairs ministers Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey and Mauritius counterpart Hon SeetanahLutchmeenaraidoo signed the agreement at a ceremony last Saturday at Port Louis, Mauritius.

At least seven people have died and the death toll is still rising at the Tamale Teaching Hospital following management’s decision to abandon a faulty oxygen producing machine, which serves as a supply point for many health centers in the three regions in the North.

Sources say the faulty oxygen machine requires a little below GHC30,000 to fix, but instead, the management has committed to a weekly procurement of insufficient oxygen at GHC15,000.
