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?

Another Way Accra Mall's "Game" Shop Cheats its Customers

How about a little arithmetic for you this side of the day? What do you get when you have 14 pouch meals in gravy (@100g) going for GHC17.50? What you get is a simple arithmetic where you divide 17.50 by 14 pouch meals. You get: GHC1.25. That's 1.25 ghana cedis per pouch meal.

So, how on earth is it possible to get the same pouch meal of 100g going for...GHp0.90?

1. Could it be that GAME management has poor supervisors?
2. Could it be that it is GAME's way of ensuring that they cheat customers, knowing most of them are middle class and would not miss a couple of ghana cedis?
3. Could it simply be that the profit motive for GAME blinds them to distraction?

Whatever your question/answer formulation, I was profoundly disappointed when I asked a GAME attendant why this discrepancy, and all he could say was..."ah, that's GAME for you!"

So, what is it? Conspiracy?

Remember my "Tale of Two Twixes" in March? To err is human, but to persist...
