The National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) has observed with worry, the continuous upsurge of road traffic crashes and casualties during festivities like Easter.
Available statistics on road traffic crashes indicate that the first quarter of 2017, a total number of 296 crashes was recorded leading to 66 deaths and 456 injuries.
World TB Day, falling on March 24 each year, is designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis, today, remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries.
The theme ‘Unite to End TB: Leave no one behind’ is in its second year of running with the purpose of providing health care for all patients suffering from this ailment.
You remember those days when the boys in a class will contribute monies to buy a soccer ball so that they can play during break? A similar thing happened in Akosombo Presby Primary in the early 2000s. All the guys in the class agreed to contribute 1000 cedis (now ten pesewas) in order to get a soccer ball of their own except this rich guy who paid 5000 cedis (now 50 pesewas).
How ironic is it when a beggar is richer than the person he is begging from (giver)? Quite ironic.
When you are walking through town, just take sometime to see the number of people who are on the streets begging.
Some are honestly in need of a penny to buy a daily bread whiles some are richer than you yet they are begging you for a penny.
