YEN.com.gh has learned that the 18,000-square-foot home which belonged to the late Microsoft founder, Paul Allen, has been sold for $35.2 million.
Allen’s home, referred to as the Atherton, is the most expensive zip code in the United States of America (USA).
It was first advertised for sale in October 2019 and valued at almost $41.5 million; it was valued at $27 million at the time Allen purchased it.
Business Insider reports that the sale of the home has been the highest in the neighbourhood since 2017.
Allen, who died in 2018 at 65 years due to cancer, gained fame when he published his memoir in 2011.
Aside the California-based Atherton, he reportedly had other homes in the USA and was valued at about $20 billion at the time of his death.
In other news, President Akufo-Addo has cautioned the minority side in Parliament against introducing what he terms as “ill-judged politics” into the fate of Ghanaian students in China.
According to him, the actions of the minority would eventually lead to the spread of fear and panic among the students in the country.
The president passed the comments as part of his presentation of the State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
He explained that the situation in China is a delicate one that needs to be devoid of scoring points by playing politics with it.
He, therefore, entreated the House to set a good example and pour oil over troubled waters so that there could be peace.
President Akufo-Addo noted that the government has not ruled out the possibility of an evacuation but at the moment is working with the best principles of public health.
