Dear GhanaWeb reader,
It’s been a hectic week sifting through hundreds of news stories to be published daily to avoid fake news and misinformation.

It is indeed a learning curve and we have increased our quality control checks to avoid any more slip ups in both our original and curated content.
There were more revelations after the gruesome murder of the Mfantseman MP whose suspected killers were arrested in a matter of days.

Sparking another debate on polygamy and legal implications of marriages, the second wife revealed how she only knew about the status of his first marriage three years after they were together.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s economy is recovering, says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after his 18th address to the nation on the tortuous coronavirus pandemic.
