I couldn't pay my medical bill; I ran from the hospital with my one leg - GH man says in emotional video
Ronald's story comes barely days after YEN.com.gh highlighted a story by Standard in which the family of a disabled Kenyan man who sued his boss over unfair dismissal finally found justice after they were forced to wait for 12 years for a labour dispute to be concluded.
By the end of the 12-year wait, Harry Kitao, who had sued his former employer TPS Eastern Africa Limited, after being retired on medical grounds had already died.
When he filed the case in 2009, he pleaded with the court to expedite his case as he was living with a disability.
However, the case was concluded three years after his death and was awarded GHc246,000
After winning the case posthumously, the money will go to his widow Zainab Kiwasi.
Labour Court judge James Riika, who heard the case in one day, apologised to the family for taking too long to be granted justice.
