The damaged bridge on the Accra-Tema motorway which forced authorities to partially shut the 19-kilometre stretch of highway was caused by a meteorite.
This was contained in a report allegedly released by the Ghana Meteorological Service this morning. Officials at the Met Service who predicted an abundance of sunshine on the 6th of March, claim that the damage bare all the hallmarks of a meteorite collision. Their initial examinations at the site of the incident suggests that the meteorite may have weighed about 4 tonnes and entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of at least 30,000 km/h.
Asked why the Met Service failed to forewarn Ghanaians about the meteorite, an official shot back; “what does it matter? Ghanaians never take our word seriously anyway!” He further revealed that the Met Service “will to stop forecasting and rather focus it’s efforts on reviewing meteorological events a day or two after they occur.”
Officials of the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA) who have been struggling to solve the mystery of the damaged bridge welcomed the meteorite-damage anecdote. They played down suggestions that the collapse could be due to the general poor state of the motorway, which has not seen any major maintenance work in the last 30 years.
