The Member of Parliament for Kumbugu constituency, Ras Mubarak has described government’s response to the tragic accidents which happened on Friday, March 22, 2019 on the Techiman-Kintampo road as shambolic.

According to him, government's response is an understatement, and has expressed disappointment at the posture of the presidency and top government officials concerning the accident. 

"To say that I am utterly disappointed by the government's response to yesterday's tragic accidents is an understatement,” he said in a Facebook post. 

“No package of support for the victims, no declaration of a day of mourning, and unlike other disasters in the past, no visit to either the hospital or the mass burial today by any Minister of State," he stressed.

The government's response is nothing but shambolic. More than 70 of our compatriots have died in very tragic road accidents in just one day.

No package of support for the victims, no declaration of a day of mourning, and unlike other disasters in the past, no visit to either the hospital or the mass burial today by any Minister of State.

In times of such tragic disasters, we expect leadership. What the President has demonstrated is not leadership, just vacuum.

Once again my deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims, and to the MP for Garu, Albert Alalzuuga, who has demonstrated commitment and leadership. Many of the victims were his constituents.

He's still in the area of the accident visiting the victims and picking up bills while the President and his government sleep on the job.

On Friday, March 22 2019, over 60 passengers passed on in an accident involving two buses on the Techiman-Kintampo road. 

On the same day, 10 persons passed on, with several others injured in an accident that occurred at Ekumfi-Dunkwa on the Winneba-Cape Coast Highway. 

On March 23, 2019, over 35 of the victims who got burnt were buried in a mass grave near the accident scene at Kintampo.
