ERASMUS KLUTSE: GHANAIAN MEDICAL STUDENT IN CUBA DIES DUE TO ALLEGED NEGLIGENCE

was refused treatment by the students’ clinic.

According to the PRO of the Ghanaian students’ union, the brilliant medical student was turned away from the students’ clinic because of his nationality.

To make matters worse, the Ghanaian embassy had allegedly refused to offer any help when it was called upon

Erasmus Klutse, a brilliant Ghanaian medical student described by his colleagues as a hardworking, relentless young man has passed on after he was allegedly neglected by both the Cubans and Ghanaian stakeholders.

According to Emmanuel Dwomfour-Poku, the organizing secretary and PRO of NUGS (National Union of Ghanaian Students), Cuba, Erasmus was rushed to the school clinic and was refused treatment.

He subsequently needed to be sent outside the campus but the ambulance had no gasoline and there was no funding to help the situation.

“This was possible because both the Ghanaian embassy and our sponsors, GNPC, had abandoned us”, Emmanuel Dwomfour-Poku said.

It is also indicated that the late Erasmus’ number was blocked by the Ghanaian embassy for constantly asking about his stipend which he had not received for five months.

Giving more clarity on the fate of Ghanaian students in Cuba, the PRO further stated that: “We set our expectations high only to fall short as we were sabotaged by our own government.

None of us accounted for the water shortages, the rotten food being served to not only us but also our friends of wiggling kind, and lack of petrol to facilitate transportation which would later cause the loss of our brother.”

 

He further added: “We have been impeccable, despite the lack of assistance from our embassy during the pandemic, despite the lack of stipends which leave us starving and hungry”

On accessing medical care, he indicated that sometimes, Ghanaians who board the ambulance are asked to get down so that other nationals use it but the Ghanaian embassy has never done anything about it.

In other news, back in Ghana, #FixTheCountry protestors held their protest on social media on May 9, 2021, as scheduled, after they were prevented from embarking on street protests on the said date.

Thousands of Ghanaians went out individually with their placards to take compelling photos that register their displeasure with how the leaders are running the country’s affairs and the need to fix the problems.
