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?

Waste Management, Ghana-Style!

(May I take the opportunity to say that a combination of sporadic internet access and seriously hectic period, compelling me to be multi-tasker-of-all-things-but-blogging has created the vacuum of posting!)

Zoomlion is a waste management company that has been operating in the country for a while. This is what its very well-designed website says:

Zoomlion Gh. Ltd is an affiliate of Zoomlion China produces of quality and durable waste
management equipments which has over 50 years experience in the waste management
Zoomlion Gh. Ltd is clearly focused on delivering quality waste management solution by
providing solutions that rely on ongoing technical innovations that respect the environment. read more

I am telling you this, because when you look closely at the picture, you will see, to the right of the picture, some chaps in yellow hats, just in front of the guy with the fluorescent orange top. These are the waste management people under Zoomlion.

And when I say "under", it's interesting, because in fact, I noticed that the words "AMA", or Accra Metropolitan Assembly, was written under the words ZOOMLION. I suppose it's there as evidence of approval by AMA for Zoomlion to clean the streets in Accra.

This picture was taken just some metres away from the 37 military hospital, anad not to far from Flagstaff House--the official residence of the first President Osagyefo Dr.Kwame Nkrumah.
