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. A few fell through the cracks and we did due diligence via rejoinders and apologies. 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. He happens to be legally married to two wives, a relationship the public only knew about after his first wife was selected to stand in his place as parliamentary candidate for his constituency in the December election. 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. He lifted some limitations and raised hopes on the active cases, death rate and resumption of normal activities. We sure are doing something right with the good news amid the busy season of election campaign.
After arresting the interest of Ghanaians over a fake award scheme, self-acclaimed Global Ambassador for the United Nations (UN), Kwame Fordjour, popularly known as ‘Dr. UN’ has been arrested by the police in Kumasi for not meeting a 2018 bail condition over the infamous awards.
A vitriolic Dr UN during his arrest at a radio station transformed into a happy Dr UN behind cells after a trending video showed him laughing off praises from inmates who were also asking for awards behind bars.
