Ghanaian musician Wutah Kobby has lamented that he does not have the money to pay for Government’s 14 days quarantine.
This follows arrangment by government to quarantine Ghanaians abroad who want to return into the country on special arrangements.
A letter in circulation on Social Media suggests that the government has negotiated prices with the Kempinski Hotel and African Regent Hotel to quarantine people on arrival for 14 days.
But speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty, Monitored by Ghanaian Journalist and Blogger Attractive Mustapha Nii Okai Inusah , Wutah Kobby said he is not prepared and never anticipated that he will be locked up in a way that his own country’s government will ask him to pay huge amounts of money before he returns to his homeland.
According to him, he has really suffered in the United Kingdom throughout this pandemic.
He said even in the UK, he has stayed above his means.
“It is not conducive for everybody to pay that amount of money that government is asking us to pay . The show that I came to play in the United Kingdom was canceled so I didn’t perform. I was supposed to be paid after the gig and all the gigs were canceled “, Wutah Kobby fumed.
According to him, the only thing he is doing now is to adhere to all the safety precautions in order to be safe, stay alive, and come back to Ghana peacefully.
He urges Government to open the Airports for Ghanaians stranded abroad to return.
