GHANA (Country risk rating: Medium); 22 June; Tensions high in Accra following violent protests

Tensions are currently high in Ghana‘s capital, Accra, where security forces clashed with thousands of demonstrators protesting against the demolition of the city’s Old Fadama informal settlement on 22 June. The violence, which involved protesters throwing stones at police and security forces reciprocating with teargas and live ammunition, centred on the Old Fadama informal settlement and the offices of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly. Although the situation has reportedly been brought under control, security forces are yet to continue with their demolition of the informal settlement. Any further such attempts are likely to elicit further violent protests by local residents which are likely to be centred on the Old Fadama informal settlement and surrounding areas. Clients in Accra are advised to monitor local developments, avoid all street gatherings and ensure that itineraries are kept flexible to accommodate for any potential travel delays.
