Road Accident

Former Deputy Ambassador to China involved in near-fatal accident.

Dr Charles Dwamena, the immediate previous Deputy Ambassador to China, has reportedly been engaged in an accident. According to a close source to the Ambassador, the event occurred on the Accra-Kumasi Highway on his route to the Ashanti and Ahafo regions for political party-related activities on September 3, 2021.

According to an anonymous source, Dr Charles Dwamena was in the vehicle with his driver at the time of the accident and was treated at the Juaso Government hospital. They have been transported to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for additional treatment despite the fact that they are both in stable condition.

Meanwhile, in an August interview with Asaase radio, Dr Dwamena urged all road users, particularly commercial vehicle drivers, to adhere rigorously to road safety rules in order to decrease road fatalities.

He stated that the high degree of indiscipline displayed by some road users contributes significantly to the avoidable loss of life. He agreed that while Ghana's road network is not ideal, a lot of incidents may be prevented with good discipline on the part of all road users, particularly business drivers.

He revealed that over 1100 lives will be lost in 2020 as a consequence of traffic accidents, considerably exceeding the entire number of deaths attributed to the deadly COVID-19 epidemic, a scenario he considers intolerable.
