It’s election year again, and as is the custom, party leaders, as well as foot soldiers, are doing all they can to project their parties to the masses and secure more votes.
In a video going viral on social media, a man died while fixing a party flag on an electric pole.
The sad incident is said to have happened at Labone, Kweku Baako Street in Accra.
It is reported that the unidentified man, believed to be in his 30s, was trying to fix a party flag on the light pole. Per the commentary in the video, the flag was that of the New Patriotic Party.
But one could see the National Democratic Congress’ flag also hanging on the electric pole. Therefore, it is not certain the particular party’s flag he was trying to fix there.
He was electrocuted in the process and died instantly. According to a witness, she could clearly see the man had no knowledge about what he was doing.
