PEOPLE RUN FOR THEIR LIVES AS ANOTHER TANKER EXPLODES AT KAASE

A video going viral on social media captures the moment scores of people run for their lives as another tanker catches fire at Kaase, a suburb in Kumasi.

In the video below, a tanker that is supposedly loaded with fuel is seen burning fiercely as onlookers watches on.

According to MyJoyOnline report, the affected area is alleged to be a hideout for individuals engaged in illegal fuel siphoning activities.

Eyewitnesses say some individuals were using gallons to siphon fuel from the tanker at a hideout when it went into flames.

The fire spread to an abandoned factory in the area. About 50 make-shift structures occupied by squatters were burnt completely.

The tragic incident at Apiate in the Bogoso Municipal has now deterred people from going close to disaster and taking videos and photos.

“PEOPLE CLOSE TO THE PRESIDENT ARE NOT TALKING TO ME ANYMORE BECAUSE OF MY TWEETS” – Yvonne Nelson Discloses

Actress Yvonne Nelson has said people close to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo do not talk to her anymore because of her anti-government tweets.

Ms Nelson does not shy away from tweeting about national issues and how the government and politicians are running down the state.

According to her, assertions by some Ghanaians that she has been quiet and less critical of the Akufo-Addo administration unlike she was under the Mahama-led administration, is not true.

She said her critics just want to see her on the streets demonstrating like she did during the NDC era with her famous “Dumsor Must Stop” walk.

Nelson noted that the fact that she is not on the streets demonstrating under this administration does not mean she is quiet or less critical of the Akufo-Addo government.

Speaking on Accra FM on Thursday, 20 January 2022, the multiple award-winning actress said: “I’m always talking about politics”, noting: “They just want to see Yvonne Nelson out there with the crowd demonstrating; that’s all they want to see”.

“So, I did it during the NDC era, I’ve to do it during the NPP; that’s what they want to see but everything started on social media”, she explained.

On why she embarked on the ‘Dumsor Must Stop’ demonstration, Ms Nelson told show host: “When I tweeted: ‘Dumsor Must Stop!’, which was affecting all of us, it was trending on Twitter and that’s how come I took it on the street”.

“So, if I talk about something on Twitter and it doesn’t trend and it doesn’t generate a lot of interaction, there’s no momentum, how do I get people to rally behind me to do whatever. So, I’ve always been talking about politicians.”

Ms Nelson, who is also a movie producer, went on further to say: “I talk about the president all the time”, insisting: “When something is going wrong, I tweet about it; they can check my tweets…”.

As a result, she revealed: “People close to the president are not even talking to me anymore because of my tweets.”

She noted that it was normal for people close to the President not to want to talk to her anymore because she is being critical of the government.

“Sometimes, when I tweet, I’ve a long message from whoever; explaining things. And, I say: ‘Listen, the average Ghanaian cannot see this, so, please go out there and let the average Ghanaian understand this’. People are thinking about the monies in their pockets and not the stuff you’re typing to me,’” she noted, stressing: “I’ve never been quiet. It’s there, it’s on Twitter, so, why is anyone saying I’m quiet.”

WE’LL DEFINITELY PASS THE E-LEVY- Dep. Finance Minister, John Kumah Assures Ghanaians

The Deputy Minister of Finance, John Kumah insists that the E-levy that has been vehemently opposed by a section of Ghanaians including lawmaker will definitely be passed.

John Kumah said the passing of the bill and the reversal of the benchmark values will restore confidence in the economy from investors.

Speaking on Asaase Radio in Accra, the Minister said he is very certain of the passing of the levy despite the challenges it has faced.

We believe that we may stay the year slow like we’re seeing. If eventually the E-Levy and the benchmark values come on board which they will come…that one I can assure you that eventually, it will happen; which has caused anxiety or concern among the investor community. They think that you have an Appropriation Bill passed but the revenue that is anchored on is in limbo…so we appreciate those concerns but we’re confident that the steps being taken will ensure that eventually we are able to pass the E-Levy and are able to do the [benchmark reversals].”

“The [benchmark] reversal is not so much about revenue than the economic impact where now some businesses are indicating to close from Ghana because they are being competitive from their production in our country and that is a key policy issue that as a country we have to respond to”.

Kumah said passing the E-Levy is crucial to among other things reducing youth unemployment in the country.

“We believe we will pass E-Levy, we believe once E-Levy is passed we will stay within budget targets, …it is ok to have positive ratings from all the agencies, it only shows confidence,” he said.

“But with or without confidence [from investors], we as Ghanaians and managers of this economy, we are very confident of what we are doing and we believe we will put this nation on track just as we have done all these while.”

The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta has said government will hold broader consultations on the levy and expects it to pass when Parliament resumes later this month.

“TT DESERVES RESPECT; DON’T BE HARSH ON HIM” – Yvonne Nelson To Ghanaians

Celebrated Ghanaian actress and filmmaker, Yvonne Nelson has jumped to the defense of veteran actor, Psalm Adjeteyfio’s following the backlash over his leaked voice note begging for money.

You may recall that Psalm Adjeteyfio alias T.T requested leftovers from MzGee’s kitchen in a leaked voice note. Many individuals were enraged at T.T. for requesting leftovers following his large compensation from the vice president.

Yvonne Nelson stated during a Thursday, January 20, interview on Accra FM “I’m very sorry and will pray for him. I’m very sorry.” In other words, “it has already occurred, and how we respond is critical.”

When working with people who have health concerns, extreme caution must be exercised. If you have $100,000 in your account, that does not indicate you are broke; yet, if you become ill and spend it all on your health, that does not mean you are broke. This simply indicates that you require assistance.

Why not invest his entire fortune on health? It may happen to anyone; we have no idea what the future holds. This is a guy who requires care, and if you are unable to provide it, “respect him as an older man.”

Because anyone can become ill at any time, Yvonne stated that people should be friendly to one another.

“I don’t know what the future holds for me; I don’t know what will happen in the future, and I have no right to judge anyone.” Then, she said, “Let’s not be mean to each other. Let’s have a heart and think about how we deal with some of these things, because it could happen to you, your family member, your mother, or anyone else you care about. It could happen to anyone.”

In the midst of the country’s football community’s general unease, Ghana’s football governing body’s president admitted it is difficult to explain why Ghana missed the tournament.

It’s a simple question, but a difficult answer,” he said on Asempa FM.

The Ghanaian team has arrived in Accra after a poor performance at the tournament.

“MY TUMMY BECAME BIG TO THE EXTENT THAT I HAD TO LIFT MY TUMMY TO SEE MY PRIVATE PART” – Kisa Gbekle Explains Why She Did Surgery

Actress Kisa Gbekle has asked those criticising her for undergoing surgery to enhance her body to stop wasting their time because she is unfazed by their comments. Infact, she doesn’t care what they think.

Late last year, Kisa shared updates of her surgery in a hospital in Turkey on her social media pages and it was obvious she was undergoing a tummy tuck — a surgical procedure to make the abdomen thinner and firmer.

The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen.

Her revelation did not go down well with some of her fans and industry players, with some of them expressing their disappointment since they believed she already had a naturally ‘banging body’, a slang for a very nice body.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Kisa said: “I do what makes me happy. I have heard and read all that people are saying but all I know is that I do what makes me happy.

“As long as my mom, who is the most important person in my life, is okay with it, then I am good to go. I don’t care about anyone who is not happy for me because I did something that will make me happy,” she stated.

Telling this reporter what warranted her decision to go in for tummy tuck, she answered: “Everyone knows Kisa has got a ‘banging body.’ But during the height of COVID-19, I could not keep up anymore.

“My tummy became so big to the extent that I couldn’t see my private part anymore. To do so, I had to lift my tummy and it was embarrassing so I felt the surgery was the right thing to do.

“I discussed it with my mom and she was fine with it. Initially, she was not but when I answered her questions on all the myths surrounding this tummy tuck she gave her consent.”

Sharing her experience on the procedure which she had in Turkey, Kisa said it was painful. “It wasn’t easy at all. I even thought I was going to die. I did a documentary on it, which is on my YouTube channel.

“I did a tummy tuck, not the normal liposuction or Brazilian Butt Lift(BBL). Truth is, a tummy tuck is very painful; no jokes, but if you do it at the right place with the right people who have the right expertise, you will have no issues.”

Kisa who has returned to Ghana said she was doing well. “I am really okay. I didn’t do this in a rush. I took my time and made sure I was ready for it, both mentally and physically. Thankfully, the people who worked on me were excellent so I am fine. My body is back.”

On what she is up to after her tummy tuck, Kisa said: “Currently, I have just been eating and sleeping and planning for this year because I’m coming back to do a whole lot.

“My football academy has been on hold too because I’m working on getting teams for my boys. However, my team and I are grooming new players and next year, we will release them to teams. “On the movie front, I have a lot I’m working on. This year, we are not slacking”, she added.
