On the matter of neurological equipment for KBTH - Reported by MyJoyOnLine

 

Commentary, March 04, Ghanadot - The article emphatically implies that the lack of equipment is placing lives at risk- from devastating neurologic impairment and death.

But what is the scope of the problem?  How many patients are or have been affected over the last five years? We are not told. Are the records available? oops!

Has any effort been made to approach neurosurgeons within Ghana to help; or is the implication that there are none outside KBTH and the only recourse is for the patient to spend 50 000USD to travel outside Ghana?  We are not told!............

In The Matter Of Lexus Lx 570s, Toyota Landcruisers And Our State Vehicles.
Ghanaweb, March 03, Ghanadot - Last week it emerged that Dr. Joe Oteng-Adjei, Minister of Energy and Petroleum from 2009 to 2012, was still using a Lexus LX 570 owned by the ministry .... Though he was not a minister or holding any official position in government, he was in possession of a government vehicle for almost eight months, presumably had it maintained and expensively fuelled by the state. The vehicle was one of several overpriced American built vehicles bought by the Energy Ministry for a rural electrification project. .....More

 

 

Building for comfort and the environment
Commentary, March 03, Ghanadot - To start with, the current paradigm for building designs in Ghana are truthfully part of the problem. A lot of our builders and the people who live in these houses all too often watch too much television dramas of the lifestyles of the rich and famous. And without doing any research, demand similar copycat constructions....."mi peh wei bi".  ......More
