Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
It is quite unbelievable how some Ghanaians can just defy lockdown directives and do the contrary of protocols set in place to protect their very self from harm's way.
YEN.com.gh has sighted a trending video of traders at the CMB market also known as the Accra Brewery night market, as at 10 pm Friday, April 17, 2020 night, bustling with human and trading activities.
From the drone or aerial shot of the market, it was clear the traders and their customers were not practising social distancing in these dangerous times.
See video below:
It is sad how some market women just think about making money and do not concern themselves with how challenging that could be to their health and that of many others there to patronise their goods.
The shocking video has drawn serious criticisms and comments from Facebook users who believe their actions are a ticking time bomb if the situation is not checked.
Markets in Accra and Greater Kumasi were closed due to nonadherence to protocols stated by the World Health Organisation.
The Asafo Market and the Kumasi central markets in the Ashanti region were closed down as traders failed to adhere to safety protocols.
The Dome-Kwabenya Market in Accra, as well as the Madina markets, were also closed down and later opened when modalities were put in place to ensure social distancing.
In spite of all these, the traders are finding night time on the blind side of the security personnel and authorities to freely engage in their buying and selling.
Ghanaians have been reacting to the development. Emmanuel Sedem Agbomanyi said:
Abena Soloku opined that the partial lockdown has failed:
In another interesting report, Ghanaians have given rib-cracking hints on how people from the Ga tribe can be easily identified without necessarily asking them for their names or place of origin.
YEN.com.gh first asked the general public for their views on the question: "What do most people say about Ga people and what is the easiest way to know someone is a Ga?"
Some of the most informative and hilarious ones have been gathered.
