About hundred old men and women in the Ashanti Regional capital Kumasi has threatened to undergo a naked demonstration if government continues to turn a deaf ear to their plight.
The group, who embarked on a protest in Kumasi against the dumsor canker and lack of jobs in the country in June; has given the John Dramani Mahama led administration a one month ultimatum to distribute cocoa inputs to farmers—else they will march straight to the Flagstaff House in the nude.

The sad news of the passing of the legendary Charles Kumi Gyamfi broke this morning, marking a sad moment for all football loving Ghanaians and even those outside the fraternity.
Gyamfi led the Black Stars to three successive Cup of Nations trophies, a hugely impressive and since not matched feat.
The Ghana Football Association has in the wake of his death released a statement addressing the sad news of the passing of a national hero.
“It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of the legendary Ghanaian coach and footballer C.K. Gyamfi in Accra this morning.
Today is a day of great sadness for all football fans considering how his personal and professional career touched the lives of many people not only in Ghana but across the continent.
C.K. Gyamfi was the first African footballer to play in Germany, when he joined Fortuna Dusseldorf in 1960. He also played for both Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
As a coach, he successfully coached the Black Stars to three African Cup of Nations titles (1963, 1965 & 1982) which makes him one of the most successful African coaches ever.
The GFA is immensely hurt by the loss of such a talented footballer and coach who shaped the lives and careers of many Ghanaian footballers and coaches.
He served the game and the nation with great distinction and success and will no doubt remain an inspiration to our players and coaches.
The GFA wishes to extend its deepest condolences to the family of CK Gyamfi and most importantly to his wife, children, friends and loved ones.
Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time”
Anyone who attended school in Ghana would be familiar will this thing being done in the video below—called morning MENTAL; when the teacher quickly asks some random difficult questions and students on their feet have to provide the correct answers on time or face the cane.
In this funny video, a tough teacher of Sankofa JHS kicks off his class with MENTAL—and as usual, he gets to beat a whole lot of the students who could not answer his questions.
Then finally, he comes up to this smart student who wouldn’t miss an answer—but would the teacher give up? Hell No, he keeps throwing questions to the extent that, he even asks the student ‘What time did I wake up this morning’ and guess what, he got it right…
Watch the video below and laugh out loud!
There are a lot of mistakes that you can make and rebound from, but if there ever was a list of irredeemable mistakes I guess this would be pretty much near the top of the list.

A few days ago the hitherto unknown George Boateng announced picked up his forms to contest President John Dramani Mahama during the upcoming NDC primaries for the position of flag bearer.
Nobody has been taking him seriously so far, with General Mosquito even jokingly saying he should seek psychiatrist help. However, I believe comments like these would certainly get people to notice him. (more…)

The below video shows everything that is wrong with our mindsets as Ghanaians—and also, everything that is wrong with our law enforcement agencies as well as our leaders…
When we talk about personal hygiene, it pushes into keeping your surroundings clean—be it your home or place of work, including the market if you are a market seller.
And what wouldn’t be difficult for a class one student to appreciate, it seems some grown men and women in Ghana must be pushed with guns before they can bring themselves to acknowledge it.
The video is pathetic in two ways—you can find more than two reasons why it’s sad that this is happening in this day and age but I will limit mine to just two.
First of all, when did it become the duty of ‘men in uniform’ to carry guns around markets in Ghana under the request of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly—purposely to intimidate the market sellers to clear their rubbish or clean their environment?
If the intimidation and the military involvement do not bother you, what about the hovering sense of abuse of power? Someone thinks he can use these military men as his forward runners…
Secondly, how old are these market men and women? How on earth must a grown up individual be pushed with a gun on his or her head before he/she sees the sense in clearing his or her own refuse? (more…)
