A fatal crash at Bechem in the Brong Ahafo Region has killed two top officials of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Reports say the two party officials were returning from from Today’s NDC Manifesto Launch at Brong Ahafo Region when a speeding Yutong bus smashed their car.
The two officials were passengers in a vehicle owned by the NDC National Women Organizer, Hajia Joyce Zanaibu Mahama, who survived the crash in spite of critical injuries.
Party officials say Hajia Joyce Zanaibu and her injured driver have been admitted at an unnamed hospital, where they are receiving medical attention.
A Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, George Lawson, confirmed the fatal incident to Citi News but did not give details.
I understand they were coming from Sunyani when the accident occurred, he said. This is a very sad moment for the party.
This is a big loss to all of us, he added, describing the victims as people who were playing a pivotal role as far as our democracy is concerned.
Ghanaian roads are among some of the most dangerous in the world, recording thousands of fatal car crashes annually.
