“Only Thursday night a popular songstress in this country called Ebony involved in a road accident and died due to the bad road network”, the lawmaker told the British High Commissioner to Ghana, lian Walker at a function in Kumasi.

“My appeal to you is to help us to fix our bad roads including the one you travelled on to this area and also help us to get one Senior High School here in Sokoban”, Hon. Kennedy KanKam further appealed.

Her black Jeep vehicle with registration number AS 497-16 collided head-on with a KIA Grand Bird VIP bus with registration number GT3232-17 from the opposite direction.
