The Government of Ghana has finally received the 245 Ghanaians who were illegally staying in the Government of Kuwait.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the deportees were seen in a single file moving with little or no luggage.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of them were spotted with nose masks on as they moved.

The atmosphere in the video rather looks calm and probably could be a happy moment for the deportees as they are finally back in their homeland.
