Websites that spread false news are on the rise in Ghana. They tend to clone other popular websites so that the news appears to be from a credible source. Over the past few weeks, these websites have spread rumours about the passing of many other notable Ghanaians.

They include popular actors Kyeiwaa, Waayosi and even Kufour’s wife, Theresa Kufuor.

John Kufuor became president in 2001; which was the first peaceful transfer of power from one democratically elected government to another. Under his administration, he pursued a number of social policies such as the National Health Insurance Scheme, the school feeding programme and free maternal health care.
