Two Ministers Weep “Uncontrollably” At Kintampo Accident Site

It was a sad scene today following a visit by the Miniter for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah to Kintampo accident site.The Minister was in the area together with the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta, to acquaint themselves with issues relating to the gory accident last Friday which claimed 57 lives.But the Minister for Transport lost steam at the Jema cemetery where the 35 victims who were burnt beyond recognistion were buried and shed tears.Visibly down by what he was seeing, the Minister could only express his sorrow in tears as his entourage solemnly looked on.The scene was no different when they got to the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman as his other colleague, Kwasi Amoako Atta, also broke down after listening to accounts from some survivers.Some of the survivors recounted how the driver of bus they were on board, the Garu-Tempane-Kumasi bound KIA Grand Bird with registered number GT 5694 – 18, drove recklessly.“We were coming from Garu and somewhere along the line, we saw another vehicle climbing the hilly road. Our driver over sped to reach that vehicle and at a point in time tried overtaking it.“From there, he continued over speeding and when you caution him to exercise restraints, he tells you that he wants to pick some market women who trade in okro and were waiting for him.”Call our Editor on 0209391902 or click here and inform us via Whatsapp. You could equally email your stories or articles to and we’ll surely put them onlineLog in to leave a comment
