Some prophets including Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah, General Overseer of Godsway International Ministry and the Eagle Prophet have attributed the death of students at Kumasi Academy, to evil spirits. However, they failed to attribute to any individual or group of people. But another prophet in the person of Kojo Agyekum, who is the founder of the Emmanuel Temple International, has attributed the mysterious multiple deaths to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). It has been established that that the mysterious deaths recorded at the Kumasi Academy in the Ashanti region were caused by a respiratory illness known as Influenza H1N1 209. Addressing the media Thursday, the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu  said 19 tests conducted by the Nogouchi Memorial Institute confirmed Influenza H1N1 209 as the cause of the deaths and not meningitis as earlier suspected. Influenza H1N1 209 also known as swine flu was last recorded in Ghana in 2009.   According to the Minister also stated that seven students who died at KUMACA in April this year died from meningitis.  But reacting to the issue, Prophet Kojo Agyekum says the NDC have tied the current president so he will encounter such evil machinations in the bid to make his government unpopular. According to him, the NDC has managed to make the government under Nana Addo spiritually impotent and it will get to a period where Ghanaians will blame the president for sacrificing Ghanaian students for the free senior school. He told Rainbow Radio that they went to Aburi Mountains to pray and it was revealed to them that, the spiritual death will start at some of our elite secondary schools with at least five students, dying from each of these schools. He continued: ‘’blame the  the opposition NDC.  They have done this because they want people to accuse Nana Addo for going for spiritual support to make his SHS policy succeed.’’ He further revealed that, the National Youth Organizer of the NPP, Sammy Awuku, was to lead in the prayers and the day for the prayers, was to start on the day the president was born; however, the letter I sent to the president was not given to him.'' He stressed that if prayers are not offered, more students will continue to die in other schools because the attack is spiritual and not H1N1 Influenza as stated by the medical team that worked on the blood samples.     ‘’That is what God revealed to our prayer warriors. We will appeal to parents to rise up and pray because what has happened is not ordinary. It is spiritual. I heard some of the students saying that the situation is a spiritual attack and so they want it to be treated as such. I will also appeal to Nana Addo to take the prophecy serious.’’

Paying tribute to the persona of the president, the vice praised "I see the increasing competence of H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo each passing day and the level at which he has the country at heart cannot be easily compared. The president is never corrupt, and cannot be made to be so". As a sign of his appreciation, Alhaji Bawumia has promised to paint up the Central Mosque and do tiling where necessary for beatification. Other cash donations were also made by the party.   In his response through his spokesperson, the Chief Imam congratulated Dr. Bawumia for being grateful to God and showing appreciation when it was due.   He advised the Nana Addo led administration to serve Ghanaians with truth and accountability for the country to be outstanding among other African countries.     By: Daniel Asuku

Former Commissioner for the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) says the fight against corruption is poor. He asserted that whereas there is too much talk, the efforts in the fight against corruption are less. Speaking at the maiden Corruption Watch Pop-Up Event held by a group of anti-corruption bodies, Justice Short stated said: “Our advocacy is to demonstrate to the general public, the significant impact of corruption on national development and I am glad that this is what this event is demonstrating. This is what is going to generate the kind of support and commitment we need from everybody, including the general public in the fight against corruption,” He added: “This is the objective of Corruption Watch; to draw attention persistently, to the various acts of corruption that we continuously talk about in the media, and yet, nothing is done. “There is too much talk and very little action so we really need to make sure that those who have the responsibility of investigating and prosecuting acts of corruption sit up and save the nation from the millions of dollars of cedis that we are losing. “So I cannot overemphasize the importance of Corruption Watch and this particular event which is dramatizing the impact that a few people can make on the lives of Ghanaians by stealing funds which are needed for social and economic services.” the event sought to create public awareness on the negative impact of corruption, educate people on the role of citizens in the anti-corruption fight, awaken the consciousness of Ghanaians to take a stand against corruption and also to trigger a national debate on corruption. It also formed part of the project’s mobilization strategies to reduce the high levels of public corruption with the support of the public.   As part of activities to communicate the project’s objectives to passersby and the general public, student volunteers from Wisconsin University and the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) stood by the roadside holding placards with inscriptions communicating the negative effects of corruption and the need for Ghanaians to get involved.

Rubber tree producers in the Upper West Akyem District of the Eastern region, have appealed to government to support them financially. Some farmers who spoke to Rainbow Radio’s Prince Collins Bening said, their work is difficult therefore; they would want support from government. They said the current administration has pledged to support farmers and in doing so; we want to appeal to government to support rubber tree producers.     One of the farmers said rubber is a unique tree crop that can really alleviate poverty among rural farmers especially women, since every month the farmer will earn some income from the cultivation and so government should inject more money in the sector.   The farmers were of the view that the sector when supported, it will provide raw materials for agro-based industries, earn us a foreign exchange and put Ghana on the global map as a net exporter of rubber through which more jobs would be created for the unemployed youth.
