On Tuesday, Ghana marked the 16th anniversary of the May 9 Accra Sports Stadium disaster that took the lives of 127 people making it the worst disaster to have ever taken place in Africa.

The incident happened during a match between Ghana’s two most successful clubs, Hearts and Kotoko at the then called Ohene Djan Sports Stadium.

May their souls rest in peace.
