Floyd Mayweather disclosed in July that he’ll be coming to Ghana but due to reasons best known to him, he couldn’t make the trip.

However, he may come down finally to honor the ‘Year of Return’ agenda.

About Year Of Return, Ghana 2019

The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia.

The arrival of enslaved Africans marked a sordid and sad period when our kith and kin were forcefully taken away from Africa into years of deprivation, humiliation and torture. While August 2019 marks 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in the United States, “The Year of Return, Ghana 2019” celebrates the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic slave Trade who were scattered and displaced through the world in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

The Ghana Tourism Authority(GTA) under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture is leading the project in collaboration with the Office of Diaspora Affairs at the Office of the President the PANAFEST Foundation and The Adinkra Group of the USA.

One of the main goals of the Year of Return campaign is to position Ghana as a key travel destination for African Americans and the African Diaspora. In 2019, the events planned throughout the year will serve as a launchpad for a consistent boost in tourism for Ghana in the near and distant years. Beyond tourism, this initiative supports one of the President’s key developmental agendas in Ghana Beyond Aid. We know that tourism can be a leading indicator to business and investment.

We are focused on ensuring that our brothers and sisters have a safe, pleasant and wonderful journey home so they will want to come back, get involved, see the opportunity that exists in Ghana for us to work together and begin to rebuild what has been stolen and lost over the past 400 years.

KNUST SHS Students Protest After Death of Colleague

Published

Some students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Senior High School (KNUST SHS) on Tuesday evening held a protest against the school authorities following the death of a student.

According to the students, one of their colleagues who had an ulcer and was ill was not attended to adequately by the school authorities.

They believe the authorities feared he had contracted the novel coronavirus and as a result, did not attend to him for hours leading to his death.

The students then started demonstrating to register their displeasure with the school authorities.

During the protest, they vandalised the headmistress’ car.

It took the intervention of police personnel who were deployed to the school to help maintain calm.

One of the students recounted that “the senior housemaster told his [the deceased boy’s] friends to leave him alone. He told them to sanitise their hands and asked them why they were holding the boy and gave them a plot to weed [as punishment].”

The students also accused the headmistress of also not handling the situation with any urgency.

“The headmistress herself came to stand in front of this boy and the boy was rolling on the floor for more than four hours. They couldn’t call any car to take him to the hospital.”

Authorities of the school declined to speak to Citi News following the death.

A team of police personnel have been stationed on the school’s premises to maintain calm.
