The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy Secretary for the Kintampo South constituency has died in a fatal accident on the Kintampo-Techiman road.
The incident reportedly occurred on Sunday afternoon, three days after Issah Sibawe tied the knot.
As customs demanded, Mr Sibawe and his new bride travelled to Techiman to formally introduced themselves to their families but were involved in the accident on their return.
The Constituency’s Communications Officer, Matthew Atanga, confirmed the incident on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show.
According to him, the accident occurred when one of the tyres of the pick-up vehicle they were travelling came off.
Mr Atanga noted that he has since been buried in accordance with Islamic tradition.
Meanwhile, his wife, who sustained various degrees of injuries, is currently receiving treatment at the Techiman Holy Family hospital.
Mr Atanga added that Siba’s death is a big blow to the constituency as he was a hardworking individual who contributed a lot to the party’s growth.
“Replacing him will not be an easy task,” he mourned.
