Mahama's convoy pelted with stones; 2 arrested

The incident happened at Ejisu where the president had gone to inspect some projects as part of his Accounting to the People tour in the Ashanti Region.


Sources say one person on the convoy of the president was injured as a result of the attack.

The president is however expected to pay a courtesy call on the Asantehene and his traditional council at the Manhyia palace later in the afternoon.

The president earlier on Tuesday inspected work on the first phase of the new Kejetia Market being executed by a Brazilian construction firm, Contracta during his tour at Kumasi.

He indicated the budget for the second and the third phases of the $298 million project had been approved by Cabinet.

He also commissioned an entrepreneurship village for the Kumasi Polytechnic and inspected the progress of work on the Asawase Market.

The president also assured residents of Aboabo, one of the flood-prone areas in Kumasi that work on Aboabo drains will begin soon, as tender on the work has been opened.
