Residents of Tema have been asked to stay indoors on Wednesday October 26 because the metropolis will experience a total black out as part of the funeral rites of the late chief Osonnaa Nii Adjei Kraku.
The said blackout is scheduled to last from p.m. to 12 am as part of Ga custom to honour dead chiefs.
The impending blackout and the caution to residents to stay indoors have forced some organisations within the catchment area to take proactive measures.
An internal memo that was in circulation online is asking the staff of the Tema General Hospital who are on night shifts on Wednesday to report earlier than usual.
The instruction, according to the hospital, was to enable the afternoon shift workers to hand over early and return home before the blackout.
