US plans more Ghanaians deportation after kicking out 86.

Published

A total of eighty-six Ghanaians were on Wednesday deported from the United States of America. The all-male contingent were arrested across the U.S. for offences such as abuse of terms of their visas and engaging in illegal employment, the local Finder newspaper reported.

The deportees arrived at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on a chartered flight and were screened by immigration officials before being allowed to rejoin their families.

The report added that only four of the deportees had passports, the remaining 82 without the international travel document had travel certificates. Reports indicate that others will soon be handed a similar treatment.

A breakdown of the returnees showed that people living in the regional capital (Greater Accra) and the resource-rich middle belt Ashanti region dominated the list with 37 and 24 persons respectively.

Seven other regions contributed the remaining deportees. Only one southern region – the Central Region – did not have a candidate in the contingent.

In 2017, the U.S. Ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson, disclosed that the Trump administration was set to deport 7,000 plus Ghanaians who have abused the terms of their visas. At the time, he said the potential deportees were at different stages of the process.

“In fact, about 7,000 of them are currently at different stages of the deportation process. And we are not apologetic about that,” he said.

1,968 Ghanaians were deported from across the world in 2016, more than double the figure in 2015, 723. The desire to leave the country in search for greener pastures has seen young people opt to pay huge sums to visa contractors.

The country – one of the stable nations democratically and economically – across the West African sub region continues to cement gains made with economic growth. Ghana is likely to have one of the world’s fastest-growing economies this year, according to the World Bank.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
