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?

So, Ghana Has a Maintenance Culture After All?!

Offlate, the airwaves have made serious effort to reduce reporting of politics, focusing instead--as CITI97.3 fm did last week -- on discussion of bad roads, and how Ghana's Road Fund.

Needless-to-say that a pot-hole-free Accra is a reflection of a maintenance culture that has reached near-perfection.

It is therefore very encouraging to see--as I saw this afternoon while at A&C Plaza in East Legon -- that workmen were fixing the streetlight there.

Long may it continue!

Ghana's Precarious Record on Road Safety Needs Revision...Now!

The call is more of an appeal than anything. Lets face it: Ghanaians can sometimes be an indiscplined bunch--as exemplified by this picture here, where a "heavy duty" truck is parked on the first lane of a motorway...without hazard lights.

Apart from the fact that the Ghana police is nowhere to be found, other things are found wanting:

1. a number--preferrably toll-free--to call to report cases like these;

2. a number--perhaps a twitter account of a news outlet, or the National Road Safety Commission--to report such cases;

I don't have the statistics, but simply put: too many Ghanaians die on the road every year--and this can be avoided if we put some small steps into place.
