The Management of KOALA Supermarket has presented a brand new Chevrolet Optra Saloon Car to the taxi driver who foiled a robbery attack on a KOALA employee, Lydia Horsu at Cantonments in Accra. The vehicle was heavily damaged after the driver rammed into the fleeing robbers who were on a motorbike, and pushed them to a drain.
The Head of Marketing and Public Relations, Christal Beeko told Citi News the presentation was in fulfilment of a promise made to the taxi driver after his heroic deed came to light.

“We wanted to do something for him for what he did. Our colleague is very dear to us, she has been with the company for many years…”
