Collapsed GRIDCo tower: Energy Minister suspects political sabotage

Energy Minister John Peter Amewu says he is not ruling out political sabotage in the apparent vandalism of a Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) high voltage transmission tower at Tema.

The Minister also revealed that there may have also been plans to sabotage many other towers.

Speaking to the media after a tour of the site, Mr. Amewu warned that such acts will not be condoned.

“It baffles my mind how human beings can do this to our motherland and any political party that will have some element of association with such activity is not worth being in our country,” he noted.

One of the 161,000 towers located in GRIDCo’s enclave near the free zone area in Tema, fell over into another tower after evidence that bolts had been deliberately cut and removed.

The incident led to power cuts in parts of Tema, Accra and all the way to Kumasi.
