Interview by Elton Brobbey, Joy FM.
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. They say their monthly financial support which was part of the Okudzeto commission recommendation has stopped, putting them in financial distress. My colleague Elton Brobbey has been speaking to some of these family members and reports.
Mr. Herbert Mensah has presented assorted food items and drinks worth ten million cedis to five separate families of the 2001 May 9 victims in a low key ceremony in Kumasi.
The former Director and Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of Asante Kotoko made the presentation in consonance with his annual visits to the families since the disaster.
