Tamale Teaching Hospital: Women with newborns lie on the floor over lack of beds

Some women have been forced to lie on the bare floor with their newborns at the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the Northern Region due to the unavailability of beds. When Citi News visited the facility, most women were seen on the floor with their newborn babies. One of the mothers, who complained to Citi News, appealed to the government to provide adequate beds for the hospital. “We came yesterday [Wednesday], and delivered here. We don’t have beds and are lying on the floor. Our waists are paining us. How to even sit down is very difficult for us,” she said.

Charges against you have nothing to do with E-levy – AG to Ato Forson

The Attorney General has dismissed claims by former Deputy Finance Minister, Cassiel Ato Forson, that he is been prosecuted by the state because of his stance on the controversial E-levy. The former deputy Minister is being prosecuted for causing financial loss to the state over the purchase of some ambulances in 2017 under the Mahama administration. He has attributed his prosecution to his stiff opposition to government’s new tax measures. However, in a statement the Attorney General’s department said the claims of Mr. Ato Forson are “laden with factual misrepresentations and calculated at scandalizing the criminal proceedings pending in the High Court against the Member of Parliament and exposing the Attorney-General to prejudice and hatred”. The statement signed by a Deput...

They will be deployed to help “stabilise” the country, which is a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) along with Russia, Belarus, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. The CSTO confirmed Russian paratroopers were being dispatched as peacekeepers, with advance units already deployed. ...
