The Daily Dispatch – NPP abandons supporter after rally accident.
Starr News has learnt that a 34 year old staunch supporter of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NP) who reportedly had one of his legs crushed by a pickup during a campaign rally at Bawku in 2016 has been abandoned to his fate.
Hardi Akalifa, a father of two girls, is into his sixth month at the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital, confined to a bed after a tissue of his left leg was removed and transplanted to the affected let to replace the protective covering of skin lost in that gory accident.

Mr Akalifa was sitting behind his a fellow party supporter on a motorcycle, moving about town among other party members in a jubilant campaign mood when the pickup reportedly ran into them from behind after bursting a tyre some metres away from the rally grounds.
Galamsey activities in Western Region
…Prestea Huni valley, Tarkwa & Amenfi East most affected
A study on the impact of the galamsey activities in the Western Region has shown that the Amenfi East, Tarkwa Nsuaem and Prestea Huni Valley districts are the most impacted districts in terms of operational footprint.
According to the study, the galamsey operators have destroyed 58.272%, 17.532% and 8.452% of the land sizes of the aforementioned areas respectively.
The survey which looked at 11 Municipal and District Assemblies in the Western Region, also attributed the development to the highest percentage of chamfi and alluvial (washing board) operators, which generally requires a large area of land to profitably operate.
Meanwhile the Sefwi Wiawso, Bibiani –Anhwiaso-Bekwai, Wassa East and Nzema East Districts, are the four MDAs least proliferated by galamsey operators.
