Tv3 Ghana, one of Ghana's most reputable media houses has served a notice to the general that may seem surprising to many.
According to the media house, riding, driving or walking while on phone is a traffic violation.
Everything, except one seems to be new to most Ghanaians. Walking while on a phone seems to be new to most Ghanaians. This means that one cannot use his or her phone while walking by the street or anywhere else. The police can cause the arrest of persons who break this law.
It is widely known that drivers and also riders of vehicles cannot use their phones while on the road. Ghana police have arrested several drivers on this parliament rule. However, news in the country where a police officer has arrested a person for using phone while walking seems to be unpopular.
Some Ghanaians have reacted to this and below are some comments on social media.
