Abandoned to die: Ghana ambulance investigates case of negligence PDF Print E-mail

He explained that it posed a major challenge for the smooth running of the service. Dr. Atiah Akamah presumed that the crew had perhaps exhausted all alternatives hence the need to wait for the outcome of the investigation.

Burkina lessons not for Ghana but for "sit-tight" African presidents- Chambas PDF Print E-mail

Mohammed Ibn Chambas, Envoy to the United Nation's Secretary, General Ban Ki Moon said it is very unlikely for the civilian uprising which happened in Burkina Faso to happen in Ghana.

If anything, Mr Chambas said the lessons were for "sit-tight" presidents in Africa who have refused to give up power.

"The lessons [from Burkina Faso] are not for countries like Ghana and Senegal, which are becoming fairly matured in their democracies.

"The lesson is for the sit-tight presidents in Africa. They must begin to read the scripts in Burkina Faso," he cautioned while discussing the crisis in Burkina Faso on Joy FM's Ghana Connect programme.

Unlike in Burkina Faso where entrenched clauses and presidential terms are changed by a mere vote in Parliament, amending Ghana's constitution is a bit onerous, Ibn Chambas noted.
