Man curses Mahama over June 3rd disaster cash

A man who lost his wife and child in the June 3rd fire and flood disaster has invoked curses on President John Mahama and his appointees for not compensating him for the loss.

A livid Emmanuel Owusu claimed a year after the disaster; he has not received any money from government as promised.

This, according to him, amounts to 'wickedness' thus has invoked curses on the nation’s leaders to also suffer the same fate.

Government has earmarked GH?4 million to survivors and relatives of the victims of the catastrophic incident believed to have claimed about 150 lives.

An amount of 100 Ghana cedis will be paid per household for the next three months through the Ministry of Gender and Social Protection.

Over 8,000 households across the country including Western, Ashanti, Volta and Central regions will also benefit from the donation.

Though some of the victims have received their cash donations, Mr. Owusu in an interview on Adom TV said he has been neglected.

“I buried my wife and child the same day and my life has never been the same. I’m now in debt because government has refused to support me” he fumed.

Emmanuel Owusu is predicting a more serious disaster if nothing is done about his current predicament.
