Ho, March 29, GNA - Activities of workers and school children rushing to work were absent Wednesday morning in anticipation of the eclipse of the sun.
Vehicular movement was evidently reduced making waiting time for commuters longer than normal.
The Ghana News Agency saw a few people with the shades specially made for viewing the eclipse in clusters around homes and street corners discussing the expected spectacle.
Most workers who reported for work stood on verandas with their shades. Shops did not open and food vendors have not reported at their sales joints.
"People were indoors so it was no use going on the streets to look for business," a taxi driver told the GNA. At Aflao movement and business activities were virtually at a standstill at the Ghana-Togo frontier and private schools declared the day a holiday.
