Demonstrators demand resignation of Ghana’s central bank head
ACCRA, GHANA - OCTOBER 03, 2023: Hundreds demonstrated Tuesday in the capital of Accra, demanding the immediate resignation of the Bank of Ghana Governor Dr. Ernest Addison and his deputies. Led by minority members of parliament, the protest was fueled by outrage because of the reported loss of $513,000 in 2022. Protesters chanted slogans such as "Bank of Ghana now bankrupt," underscoring frustration with financial mismanagement perceived within the central bank. Adding to the anger was the revelation of a proposed $250 million expenditure on a new central bank headquarters, a move deemed insensitive given the country's prevailing economic hardships. As demonstrators marched to the bank's head office to deliver a petition, they were informed that bank officials were in a meeting with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson vowed: "We will come back again." Ghana is grappling with record-high inflation, a cost-of-living crisis, and escalating public debt. The government has implemented measures such as tax hikes to bolster revenue to address the challenges. Youngsters conducted a three-day demonstration last month, in which they criticized government officials, including President Nana Akufo-Addo, for perceived mismanagement of the economy since assuming office in 2016. Their anger stemmed from unfulfilled promises that had initially generated high expectations. (Footage by Kwame Adzaho Amenortor /Anadolu Agency via Getty Images)

Pan across the dead bodies at mortuary STORYLINE: A stampede at a packed soccer match between top Ghana teams killed more than 130 people on Wednesday night. The crowd stampeded when police fired tear gas after fans hurled missiles at the end of a match between local team Hearts of Oak and arch-rivals Asante Kotoko from the central town of Kumasi. The hometown team was leading 2-1 against Asante Kotoko with five minutes left when Asante supporters began throwing bottles and chairs onto the field, witnesses said. Police responded by firing tear gas, creating panic in the stands as spectators rushed to escape the gas. Many of the dead and injured were taken to Accra's military hospital. Ten of the victims who died had been brought to private clinics, while an additional 120 people were declared dead in the city's three main hospitals, medical officials said. Brigadier, Daniel Twum, of the military hospital where most of the dead and injured were taken said "some died of suffocation but the majority seem to have been killed by being crushed". President John Kufuor summoned his cabinet for an emergency meeting later on Thursday and his aides said that a period of national mourning would be declared.
