Two people aboard a motorcycle are reported dead after falling off the third tier of the newly constructed Pokuase Interchange.

The rider died on the spot, while the pillion rider, who sustained injuries on the head and the body, was transported to the Ofarkor Community Hospital while he was still conscious.

The body of the rider was, however, left on the pavement for more than an hour before it was taken to the Police Hospital morgue upon the arrival of the Pokuase District Police on the scene in response to distress calls.

The Pokuase Interchange is a four level stack interchange, the biggest in West Africa.

The Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Juliana Obeng, confirmed the incident and said the pillion rider was referred to the Ridge Hospital where he died yesterday.

She said the police had not been able to identify the two persons whose motorbike was unregistered, and appealed to the public to help the police establish the identity of the two in order to hand their bodies to their families

The External Operations Manager for the Zhongmei Engineering Group Limited, contractors of the Pokuase Interchange, Mr Desmond Yaw Hodanu Bedi, who witnessed the incident, said the two on the motorbike were riding towards Pokuase from the direction of Awoshie.

He said per the road instructions and signs around the Pokuase Interchange, vehicles or motorbikes moving within the speed limit of 40 kilometres per hour should not fall off.

A commercial vehicle driver, Mr Samuel Danu, said he and his colleagues heard a sound “as if something has fallen from the top to the ground, but were not sure until we saw people going in a direction and we followed. We found one man dead and another who was stretching his legs, meaning he was alive”.

Google to invest $1 billion to lift Africa internet access

Published

on

 

Google said on Wednesday it will invest $1 billion over the next five years to allow for faster and more affordable internet access and support entrepreneurship in Africa.

Internet reliability is a problem in Africa where less than a third of the continent’s 1.3 billion people are connected to broadband, according to the World Bank.

But the continent, where nearly half the population is under 18, is a promising market.

According to Google and Alphabet boss, Sundar Pichai “huge strides” have been made in recent years, but more work is needed to make “internet accessible, affordable and useful for every African”.

The investment will support digital transformation by ensuring improved connectivity and access, he said in a statement.

The funds will, among other things, go towards infrastructure development including the Equiano subsea cable that will connect South Africa, Namibia, Nigeria and St Helena with Europe.

The deal expands Google’s pledge announced four years ago to train around 10 million young Africans and small-scale businesses in digital skills.

“I am of the firm belief that no one is better placed to solve Africa’s biggest problems than Africa’s young developers and startup founders,” said Google’s Africa managing director Nitin Gajria.

Internet access is also hampered by the affordability of smartphones.

Google said it will partner with Kenya’s telecoms giant Safaricom to launch affordable Android smartphones for first time users.

The project will later be rolled out across the continent with other carriers such Airtel, MTN, Orange and Vodacom.
