News Ghana some times aggregates and is not responsible for the content that publishers chose to publish in their feeds. Even though we can remove content from News Ghana once we are notified about Copyright Infringement, we cannot guarantee that it won’t appear again in the RSS feeds from the publishers. Also, removal of the content from our website has no impact on the publishers’ original feeds, so probably the content will still exist at the publishers’ websites.
