Diminutive Ghanaian actor, Don Little has disclosed that he became very furious after he was asked to pay 150 dollars for a COVID-19 test at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

In an interview with ZionFelix on the ‘Uncut’ Show, which was monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, the Kumawood actor stated that he was not aware of this arrangement by the government.

The Government of Ghana as part of the measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease announced that travelers arriving through KIA will pay $150 for a PCR test.

Don Little stated that no communication to that effect was re-laid to him when he booked his flight.

He, however, admitted he heard it in the news but thought it was just a rumour until he arrived at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) where Immigration officials forced him to do the test.

According to him, he had done an earlier test before his departure so he didn’t see the need to conduct another test following his arrival.

He further suggested that the charge for the test was too high so they should rather charge $20 or $30.

Don Little is therefore begging authorities to think about the poor when coming out with initiatives.

He further thanked the Communication Director at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin and Madam Afia Akoto for the help they offered him.

The actor was locked up in the United States of America for some months following the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease.
