Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

The District Commander for Offinso Divisional Motor Transport Traffic Department (MTTD), Edmund Nyamekye has told Happy Sports that the driver of the mini-bus transporting the young footballers who were involved in the bus accident that claimed the lives of eight of the players will be charged for overloading.

The accident which involved players of the Africa Vision Soccer Academy were returning to Offinso after a registration exercise at Afrancho where the mini-bus was involved in the accident.

According to reports, the players aged between 12 and 15 died in the Ashanti Region after the driver of the bus carrying players of Africa Vision Soccer Academy lost control and the vehicle plunged into the Offinso river on Saturday.

In an interview with Ohene Bampoe-Brenya on Happy Sports on Happy 98.9FM, DSP Edmund Nyamekye disclosed to Happy Sports that the driver will be charged for the accident.

“The driver is currently responding to treatment and will be charged when he recovers.Instead of 12 passengers he picked 36 passengers in the vehicle”.

“We are carrying out investigations into the matter to check on the license and other particulars of the driver”

“We are monitoring the health of the driver and immediately they recover we are going to charge him”, he said.

The sad incident has thrown the football fraternity into a state of mourning with clubs, officials sending tributes to Africa Vision Soccer Academy and the families of the young footballers killed in the accident.
