MTTD: 393 Pedestrians Killed In Road Crashes In Ashanti Region




The Ashanti regional MTTD has recorded a total of 2,375 cases of pedestrian knockdowns for this year 2020.

From the month of January to October, 393 pedestrians according to statistics were killed by knockdowns while 369 suffered various injuries.

On offenders, 345 were sent to court, 250 convicted and fined, 4 jailed, 8 acquitted and discharged, 81 awaiting trial.

A total fine of GH 95,334.00 was imposed on offenders, 56 cases under investigation while 46 wrongdoers were given warning letters.

These were disclosed by Police officer Andrews Attobrah- Accident Data Statistics Clerk MTTD Ashanti at a 2-day Road Safety Journalism Workshop which was organized by Vital Strategies with the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies, through the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS).

Per the foregoing worrying statistics, Andrews Attobrah indicated that focus on road safety education alone will not in any way correct the status-quo but the inclusion of a beefed-up enforcement of regulations on road safety.

“Without enforcement, education won’t be of much impact and we won’t achieve anything”.


It was a program organized for reporters and editors in Kumasi, aimed at equipping participants to explore new ways to cover one of the world’s most neglected but deadly public health hazards; road crashes.

Present at the event were the Ashanti regional officials from the National Road Safety Authority and the MTTD.

Partakers were schooled on some road safety terminologies, risk factors on road safety, relevance of the usage of data in road safety reporting, road safety data sources, challenges of data sources among others. A platform was created for group work and presentation.

Speaking to on the sidelines, Mr. Randy Wilson- Initiative Coordinator, BIGRS Kumasi said most media organizations usually report only when accidents happen “but officials are looking at empowering journalists in Kumasi with adequate knowledge to educate the public so that we will achieve a reduced rate in road crashes.

PLEASE HELP! The Shocking Thing I Saw In My Father’s Wardrobe (Should I Be Worried?)




Hello guys, the background behind this story is lengthy so to spare you the trouble I’ll jump straight to the point.

My father although he has his flaws is a very religious, and I dare say principled man in some aspects.

He never misses church service. Went to bible school.

At one point he was even a house fellowship leader. He prays and fast often.

So on this day I was standing in the doorway to my dads room.

He wanted to send me on an errand ”I think”, so he opened his wardrobe to get the money.

Immediately he opened his Wardrobe I saw a BAT…yes BAT hanging upside down right there in his wardrobe.

In shock, I jumped and shouted

”daddy see bat see bat !!!”.

Guess what he did. He simply smiled and gently closed his wardrobe.

I have never been this confused. I saw a bat hanging upside down in his Wardrop and all he did was smile and gently closed the door.

I don’t know what to make of it. I have already concluded, there is no way on earth this is from God.

Up until this time I have never seen a bat up close in real-time.

The closest I’ve been was to watch them on television. Contemplate how scared and confused I am now.

I picked up an excuse and ran out of the house to go stay with my relative. It’s been a week since I left, and I’m still too scared to go back.

What do you folks make of this? How can a man who prays and fast and attends bible school have a BAT in his wardrobe? WTF !!

What Do You Think I Should Do?

‘World’s Dirtiest Man’: Amou Haji Is An 87-Year-Old Man Who Hasn’t Bathed In 67 Years




It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney. 


Republic News Agency

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.
