TV mast falls into home in Abelenkpe

https://i2.wp.com/cdn.ghanaweb.com/imagelib/pics/60682314.jpg

The aftermath of a heavy rainstorm that hit Accra on January 24, 2015 included the collapse of a TV mast that belongs to private television station, First Digital TV from their premises in Abelenkpe onto a neighbouring five-bedroom house.

The house, which has a boys quarters attached to it, was almost entirely damaged including a Daewoo Matiz taxi parked nearby the house which has its windows shattered.

None of the nine residents of the house who were present during the accident at 5:35pm was injured, but the damage to the building will render them homeless for a while.

Construction workers are currently at the scene cutting down the broken mast which was about a 1000 feet above sea-level. By 10am Sunday morning, a crane and some plain-clothed policemen were at the scene to help with the dismantling and to ensure the security of passers-by respectively.

Abraham Ambing, one of the residents who spoke to GhanaWeb said they were saved by God because all of the members of the household were in the house when the incident occurred.

He said: “the mast owners assured us their full support and reimbursement and at the moment our lawyers are putting down agreements on paper to ensure it is judiciously followed”.

The owner of the damaged taxi with registration number GS 4345-12, Mr Emmanuel Morrison, was peeved at the situation. He said the residents had complained about the mast when it was erected about a year ago but First Digital TV failed to listen to their call.

As at the time of filing this report, no one had contacted Mr Morrison about the damages caused to his taxi which he vowed to consider a court action against them if the taxi is not repaired as soon as possible to enable him fend for his family.

Owners of the mast, First Digital TV, formerly SKYY Digital TV, were not readily available to comment on the accident but present at the scene is their legal team who are also examining the situation.

Meanwhile, the cost of damages cannot be readily ascertained.

Black Stars set to scorch Bafana

https://i0.wp.com/cdn.ghanaweb.com/imagelib/pics/18435441.jpg

Decision time is here at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and for Group C, it is a close call for all four teams, though group leaders Senegal have a foot in the next round, while Algeria, Ghana and South Africa need dramatic wins to save their campaigns.

Senegal are pretty safe with their four points, needing just a draw in their final game to sail through. Ghana, who had a jerky start, have been revived by their win against Algeria last Friday, and are even tied with Algeria on three points and could also advance with a draw, but the South Africans can only be saved by a convincing win.

South Africa face a revived Ghana in Mongomo, while Algeria play Senegal in Malabo.

The Black Stars say they are in no mood to share points, but eager to claim all three points and possibly top the group, the tough hurdle they face in Bafana Bafana notwithstanding.

In the history of their meetings at the AFCON, the Black Stars have never beaten South Africa, but hope tomorrow’s crucial tie will end in their favour, more out of their quest to keep their campaign on track rather than to even old scores.

The Stars and bafana Bafana have played three times in the AFCON, in 1996 when they hosted and won, beating Ghana 3-0 in the semi finals, in 2000 which they won 1-0 in Kumsi and in 2002 which ended in goalless.

In plotting South Africa’s downfall, Coach Avram Grant will have to find a way of getting his charges to contain them. They are fast-paced and quite skillful, capable of creating all kinds of trouble for one’s defence.

So far, the Stars defence has shown calm and composure but they can be pushed to the wall by the exuberant South Africans, whose weaknesses include inexperience, choosing to walk the ball into the opponents’ net, instead of trying shots from afar.

In this final game, however, Coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba is hoping those mistakes will be corrected and could end their search for their first three points with a win against Ghana.

That could be a tall order, considering that the Stars themselves have had their appetite whetted and are looking for more wins.

It may not be the right time to change the winning team or performing team, but it may not be harmful if one or two changes are made, especially starting someone ahead of Jordan Ayew, perhaps.

Ahead of this clash, both sides, sharing the same hotel, are preparing behind closed doors, not ready to give the other the slightest idea what their game plan is.

But while Coach Avram Grant has the strength of his full squad to choose from, Shakes Mashaba will have to wait till this afternoon to know if defender Rivaldo Roberto Gotetzee and midfielder Thuso Phala will recover in time for tomorrow’s clash after receiving knocks during their group clash with Sengal.
