Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Information reaching YEN.com.gh has it that the home of popular Ghanaian actor, Koo Fori, has been totally razed by fire.
In sad videos that have emerged online, the entire premises of the once beautiful home has been gutted by fire and has destroyed properties worth millions.
It appears the fire either started late at night of September 6, 2020, or started very early on September 7, 2020.
One of the videos sighted by YEN.com.gh, saw some fire service personnel with their fire tender leaving the premises of the actor’s home which was totally destroyed by the flames.
More videos sighted showed the insides of the house with personal properties like TV sets, fridges, furniture, ceilings and even drinks burnt beyond recognition.
Someone who appeared to be a carpenter and was in the house as at the time the video was being taken was seen trying to salvage some parts of the ceiling.
It is yet to be known what actually caused the inferno and if he was at home when it all started.
The actor is yet to react to the news and to reveal if any injuries were recorded and also how swiftly the fire service personnel responded to distress calls.
In other news, the Ghana chapter of the United Nations (UN) has issued an official press release and disclaimed any knowledge of Dr. Kwame Fordjour or his United Nations-themed awards.
In the disclaimer sighted by YEN.com.gh and fast going viral on social media, the reputable outfit indicated that its attention had been drawn to an award scheme purporting to be linked to the organisation and the Kofi Annan Foundation.
The disclaimer stated categorically that it did not have anything to do with Dr. Kwame Fordjour or his "Blueprint Global Challenge Awards".
