What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

A Happy World Consumer Right's Day?


15 March is a day to remind consumers of their right to complain for more effective and efficient public services. Are YOU aware of YOUR rights? #15March

On Thursday, I had the priviledge of attending a policy roundtable on consumer rights, which was organised by CUTS--a consumer protection NGO working in areas of consumer protection, trade and development, competition policy and law, economic regulation and good governance.

Present were regulatory agencies of Public Utilities Regulatory Commission; Food and Drugs Authority; National Communications Authority, and other civil society organisations. They offered frank views on the role of the regulator in protecting the consumer.

I believe there will be important follow-ups from this meeting, with CUTS playing an important role in sustaining the platform.

When #Graphic advertises #Voltic Sachet Water. . .

When you think of drinking #water in #Ghana, you are supposed to think of #Voltic, which is known for having provided bottled water for years in this country.

But it also produces #sachetwater, which is a "staple" of many a #westAfrican economy. I must say this is the first time I have seen it advertising its sachet water. Is it an indication of #badtimes for the company?

Welcome to Oxford Street Mall, welcome Big Capital!

#Capitalism has a new home: #Ghana, where malls spring up faster than you can say "is that another #Lebanese retail outfit?".

Oxford Shopping Mall is a new one, boasting five floors. #Shoprite is already running. Quick! Run and go spend. !!:-\

I guess the only consolation now is that in the competition between Accra Mall, A&C Plaza, Marina Mall and Oxford Street Mall, there will be some sense of discrete units of the population aggregated in certain parts of Accra.

As to whether this will be a boon to the horrendous Christmas traffic, the jury is out on that one!

Picked up your Neighbourhood paper?

I know it has been more than a while. I am around, just experiencing a LOT of real life, including following up on new, indigenous projects like this one.

What if we could Aggregate our Choice of...Food?

In a country that seems to depend a lot on hope, Ghanaians will be happy to know that technology is slowly-displacing this more-ephemeral of sensations to one predicated on practicality.

Ghanaians have been using social media long enough to know of blog, and news aggregators. But what if we could aggregate our choice of food?

Well, hello Ghana, hello food!  Actually: no pun intended. “Hellofood” is the latest and newest thing to hit town—or rather, our taste buds. It’s an exciting new way of ensuring we have our food orders delivered safely, conveniently; and easily into our homes.

Ghanaians love their food, and in an age quasi-obsessed with aggregation and choice, convenience can only come in the form of Hellofood!

Check your Gas prices!

If you ever had any doubt as to what to pay for filling your gas, the Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company (GCMC) may not have a dedicated website to finding out, but I must personally say their efficiency is assured!

You can find out more about them here:
