Kintampo tragedy accident too many – Oye Lithur
A former Minister of Gender, Children and Social
Protection, Nana Oye Lithur, has called for
prayers for the country in the wake of Sunday’s
accident at the Kintampo Waterfalls that led to
the death of 18 persons, mostly students of
Kintampo Senior High School.

Mourning the victims on Monday 20 March, the human
rights lawyer and campaigner posted on Facebook:
“Good morning, Ghana. Once again in March 2017, we
are faced with a national tragedy. 18 young men
and women have lost their lives at one of our
national tourist sites and right in the centre of
Ghana, Kintampo. This is one tragedy, one national
disaster, one accident too many for Ghana.

“We have experienced too many deaths through
accidents, disasters, and suicides this year, and
we are only three months into 2017. My prayer this
morning is for Ghana; God protect and bless our
homeland Ghana. My prayer this morning is for the
souls of our departed brothers and sisters at
Kintampo; may their departed souls rest in peace.
My prayer is for the families of the young men and
women, our deepest condolences. Let us pray for
protection and an accident-free Ghana. Let us all
pray and intercede for Ghana. I love Ghana, you
love Ghana, we love Ghana, God loves Ghana. Good
morning Ghana.”

Eighteen persons have been confirmed dead by Chief
Superintendent Desmond Owusu Boampong, Divisional
Police Commander of Kintampo. The students, who
were swimming at the base of the waterfall, lost
their lives when a nearby tree broke and fell on
them following an earlier rainstorm in the area on
Sunday 19 March.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his
predecessor John Dramani Mahama, in a separate
tweet, have also sent their condolences to the
bereaved families.
