Kumordzie recounted writing his O & A levels and University Of Cape Coast (UCC) exams in the dilapidated structure. ''Left on 6/6/1999 to the USA,'' he said.
''I remember those days when the landlord was visiting, and the tenants, including my mom, were fear-stricken. I also remember some of the arrogant children/grandchildren who used to visit with swag and pride and teased us in school for living in their house,'' he recalled.
Kumordzie disclosed that the landlord, a noble and humble man, passed away. ''But like many, he didn't take it [his house] anywhere. He left it.''
