Kintampo Waterfalls

The Kintampo waterfalls which were closed down some two years ago is now fully renovated. The facility has been given a new touch altogether with a Canopy Walkway.

Canopy walkways – also called canopy walks, treetop walks or treetop walkways – provide pedestrian access to a forest canopy. Early walkways consisted of bridges between trees in the canopy of a forest; mostly linked up with platforms inside or around the trees.

The waterfalls were closed down following a disaster which resulted in the deaths of 18 students from the Wenchi Methodist Senior High School and the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) who were patronizing the facility on March 19, 2017.

The renovation is in line with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo led the administration’s promise to revamp the tourism industry to make it a major revenue earner for the country.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said his government is determined to make the necessary investment and build the needed infrastructure to make Ghana the best tourism destination in Africa.

The Canopy walkway will take visitors high above the forest ground to walk among the trees and will also help them to get to the top of the waterfalls.

The Canopy walkway will make visitors also see the forest from 30 feet in the air, providing a different way of looking at it.

The refurbished Kintampo Waterfalls comes with an entrance fence wall and a security gate, three number souvenir/provision/ artifacts shops, a toll booth, and a spacious car park.

The main arena of the facility has a cafeteria, museum, offices, washroom, as well as an overhead, merchandised borehole water system, pavilions and summer huts to provide places for outdoor events by patrons.

Kintampo waterfalls is one of the highest waterfalls in Ghana. Also known as Sanders Falls during the colonial days, it is located on the Pumpum river, a tributary of the Black Volta, about 4 kilometers north of Kintampo municipality, on the Kumasi–Tamale road.

Below are shots of how the facility looks now:

Manchester United Submit Final £90m ‘Take-It-Or-Leave-It’ Offer For Jadon Sancho

Published

on

Manchester United will reportedly make one final offer to Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho, a player they have pursued all summer but made no progress in talks.

So far, their only signing of the transfer window has been the £40m addition of Donny van de Beek, who scored on his Premier League debut last weekend.

Jadon Sancho has been Man United’s top target all summer but with less than two weeks before the transfer window shuts he’s still with the German club.

Dortmund imposed an August 10 deadline for Manchester United to strike a deal with them but none of that materialized and the Bundesliga club have made several statements insisting he would not be sold this summer.

Earlier this week, sporting director Sebastian Kehl asserted that the England international would not be going anywhere but a new report saysMan United will test Dortmund’s resolve, though, with a final ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ bid.

According to the Mirror UK, Man United will reportedly offer £75million up front with a further £15million in add-ons while United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will also tell Dortmund there will be no negotiating over the fee or structure of the deal.

Dortmund’s asking price is said to be around the £108m mark but the Red Devils continue to be optimistic of getting a deal done before the October 18 deadline.

We all know how to do kiss and tell just that we protecting some people’s images”.

Again, Ibrah One threatened to go the extra mile in exposing Kennedy Agyapong should he sit on tv to attack or insult any leader again.
