14 years after the Accra sports stadium disaster, families of victims cry for help as government cuts funds recommended by the Okudzeto Commission.

As the country prepares to observe the Accra sports stadium soccer disaster that claimed the lives of 126 soccer fans, family members of some victims are crying for financial support.

My colleague Elton Brobbey has been speaking to some of these family members and reports.
