A meat pie hawker whose items were part of the 100 properties burnt down completely during the Shiashie fire incident in the Greater Accra Region has narrated her bitter experience.
According to the lady who did not identify herself by name, the event turned out to be a double tragedy for her, as she lost her dad recently and had just completed his funeral rites.
She revealed all her predicaments in an interview with YEN.com.gh at the site where her goods used to be kept.
Watch from 3:20 to 4:40 in the video below:
"I left Accra on Thursday to my hometown in the Volta Region to perform the funeral rites of my father who had passed away recently only to receive see 30 missed calls on my phone last night," she indicated on Saturday, August 15, 2020.
Counting her loses, the sad lady mentioned that her fridge, all equipment used to make the pies, cylinder, eggs and piggy bank that contained a lot of money, had all just vanished in a flash.
In total, the meat pie hawker lost well over GHc10,000 worth of property as the money in the piggy bank alone, according to her, contained GHc8,000.
The fire incident occurred in the late hours of Friday, August 14, 2020.
In a separate report, a person who lives in the Eastern Region of Ghana has confirmed he possesses both male and female reproductive organs, a rare medical condition named hermaphroditism.
In an interview sighted by YEN.com.gh on TV3 Ghana's Facebook handle, Mr Brown, as he calls himself, mentioned that he grew up being confused as to whether he was male or female and, as a child, attending to nature's call in school was embarrassing as he possessed both organs.
"My parents named me Akua, but I felt I was more male than female and decided to rename myself Brown and stop wearing female dresses," he said.
