Women In Accra March Against Violence

             Women and men dressed in all black attire took to the streets of Accra, Ghana on Saturday, 21st September 2019 in a peaceful march to raise awareness about Violence on Women. The March organized by the Safe Space foundation (a non-profit) comes after an announcement by the Ghana Police confirmed suspicions that the remains found in the residence of an alleged kidnapper were indeed the remains of 4 young ladies believed to have been kidnapped and murdered in Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana.
            The case of the four young women Ruth Abekah (19), Priscilla Blessing (21), Ruthlove Quayson (18), Priscilla Mantebea Koranchie, (18) who  went missing between July 2018 and December 2018 gripped the nation and led to a nationwide campaign titled #BringBackOurTaadiGirls which aimed add to raise awareness to the plight of the young girls and call for urgency to be applied to the  investigation which was widely criticized as being inefficient. Although this March was intended in part to draw attention to the case of the missing girls, it was also meant to show solidarity with women everywhere who have been victims of gender-based violence especially the women in South Africa who have been targets of longstanding acts of gender-based violence such as rape and murder.



            The protesters marched the streets of Accra on a hot Saturday in a march that started from the Polo Grounds at Airport and ended at Lokko House, Osu where a vigil was held for the victims and survivors of gender-based violence everywhere with survivors sharing their stories.





Although some passersby cheered on the protestors as they marched and  chanted along with them to show their support for the cause, some passersby  also heckled the protestors and shared their displeasure with the message of the cause which goes a long way to demonstrate the need for such organizations to create awareness gender-based violence and educate the public on the need to eradicate it.

Stop policy that promotes sexuality among school children – Mahama

Stop policy that promotes sexuality among school children – Mahama

The 2020 Presidential candidate of the NDC, John Mahama has joined calls rebuking the government for a planned introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).


In a post on Facebook, the former President asked the government to “immediately withdraw” the unpopular move.


“This addition to the national curriculum cannot be acceptable in any form,” Mahama wrote; adding that “the CSE Guidelines implicitly advocates” and promotes sexuality types among young children.


Various pressure groups and the clergy have criticised the policy, describing it as “satanic.”




Critics are worried the document advocates LGBTQ which is alien to Ghanaian culture.

Adding his voice, Mr. Mahama said: “it is important for Government and all Ghanaians to respect and uphold the enduring values, norms and the rich culture of Ghana.”

He added that “what Ghana urgently needs is a substantial improvement in quality education, which is accessible and affordable to all.”

 Hilarious viral video shows woman trying to get her man to unlock phone with his Face ID

Hilarious viral video shows woman trying to get her man to unlock phone with his Face ID

The iPhone’s Face ID feature caused a fair amount of uncertainty when it first came out, and people were concerned about privacy and security. Your partner trying to unlock your phone with your face ID may or may not have been among those concerns. But if it wasn’t then, it definitely is now.



A viral video circulating on Twitter shows a woman and a man—perhaps her boyfriend—sitting outside. Things take a turn when the woman starts shoving the man’s iPhone in his face in order to unlock it using Face ID. As she gets the phone close, he closes his eyes and covers his face. He dodges and swerves in a move sequence that almost looks graceful.
