Veep Amissah-Arthur leaves for Bamako

Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur on Tuesday left Accra for Bamako, Mali.

The Vice President is visiting Mali to express the condolence of the Government and people of Ghana, following the Radisson Blu Hotel attack in Bamako last week.

Twenty-two people died when Mali’s Special Forces and international partners freed 170 guests who were held hostage at their hotel by gunmen.

On Monday, Benin’s President Thomas Boni Yayi and Burkina Faso’s Prime Minister Yacouba Isaac Zida visited Mali to express their condolence.

Ghana and Mali have long historic ties.
