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?

"CNN Gets Ghana Wrong"--and Here's a Picture to Prove Why!

Last week the communitywas agog--screaming blue murder--over foolish pronouncements by no less than a group associated with the CNN who claimed that most Ghanaians are able to cater for themselves through a Ghanaian variation of advanced-free fraud, or SAKAWA.

Fellow ghanablogger Mac-Jordan--also a member of the Global Voices Online community -- captured it in his summary here: The reason why I refer to the article again is to ask you to read the link above and get a sense of the complaints.

Secondly, the title is a nudge-and-wink to Kobby Graham, who's title I wittingly borrowed to draw attention to the simple fact that CNN got it wrong--whether by association or otherwise, they should never have posted an article by a source who had not done the necessary checks on a story.

As the picture I took last May at the airport shows, Ghana's NACOB (Narcotic Board) has increasingly been reminding Ghanaians about the need to be vigilant in how they handle luggage--never mind the risks of carrying narcotic drugs.

I don't know about you--but if this is not an effort by a government agency trying to remind Ghanaians about keeping the country free from such vices, I do not know what is!!
