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?

Despite World Cup Febrility,Tigo Chalks One in Ghana's SIM registration Exercise

There I was last week minding my own business--as you do--when I got a call from a strange number on my TIGO mobile number.

After a five minute conversation, the lady on the other side of the line had successfully registered my mobile number -- as per the directive of Ghana's National Communications Authority -- to have one's existing numbers registered, and all new ones done before use.

Despite the noise over the registration a couple of months ago by consumers about implications for privacy and whatnot, I believe they have gotten over it, and are having their SIM cards registered.

TIGO advised me to simply go to to a place like that in the picture and double-check.

Conversely, my MTN wanted me to have my name written in a book and stand in a queue, whereas Vodafone has not even started yet!

TIGO's is what I call customer service!

BTW, Just in case you missed it, GHANA beat SERBIA 1-0 in the ongoing FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa. GHANA plays AUSTRALIA on Saturday, and GERMANY on 23rd June.
