The day some nine old drew me as a hobby

The 2 hours I spent with some 9 old women at the Kurara Art Center in Higashihiroshimashi on the 10th of August will forever linger as memory and it will be a cue I will always learn from, but most importantly practice to do with my friends in my old age. The gaze on their […]

How the Japanese “Tatami mat” culture translates into their cleanliness

Cleanliness, it is said is next to Godliness among many tongues and faiths, though I struggle to see how that view is practiced in my home country Ghana; a nation with more than 70% of her population professing to worshiping a clean Omnipotent God, yet we do otherwise as if the Omnipotent God we serve […]

“Practising of art learnt or a deliberate attempt to strengthen the love bond?”

It was a Sunday, during the late afternoon hours, as I paused momentarily from my cooking chore to spy on my playing boys, this beautiful but rather unusual scene from where I had come from as a Ghanaian caught my eye. A husband in his mid forties sat comfortably as his middle aged wife, gave […]

“The SIGNIFICANT MONEY TRAY!” 

The look on my face when I put the money on the tray was one that suggested I had had a poor reception judging from where I came from. Back home in my home country Ghana, it was courteous a way and even prestigious to receive money with hands after a deal has been completed; […]

My beard carries more germs than a dog’s fur

“Why do I grow beard, because am neither a woman nor a child”?  My market experience this time around got me seeing an innocent gentleman being mistaken for a thief. I overheard  a desperate scream coming from the crowded market ahead of me, so I watched keenly to understand why the scream and what was […]

Though Professor Gyampoh, in a Joy news reportage, has tried to […]

Christiana Afua Nyarko writes: GES, Education Ministry, Let your ‘yes’ be your ‘yes’

Despite the massive uproar on the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculum, the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service, via media confabs and series of media interviews and publications, debunked negative perceptions of forcing LGBTQ ideology, ‘free sex’ experiments, usage of condomns etc. on children. The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has […]

Comprehensive Sexuality Education: An initiation to sex perversion

Two days ago, an endorsed version of the so-called Comprehensive Sexuality Education was sent to me. Scanning through the 33 page document, I realised that this new curriculum is nothing but an attempt to initiate our kids into a world of sexual perversion. Why am I saying so? Hear my Arguments before u draw any […]

Who controls the climate change narrative? Can Africa be in the driving seat?

“We have outsourced the task of taking care of our problems and at the same time the opportunity we have with it… “ Ali Mufuruki. I reflected over the words of Ali Mufuruki, Tanzania’s entrepreneur, philanthropist and leadership coach at a recent African Leadership meeting held in Dar. I remember pondering away, weighed by the […]

Christiana Afua Nyarko writes: Demise of the Takoradi Girls; another blot on the Ghana Police Service

As I pen down my thoughts concerning the demise of our beautiful, young and promising Takoradi Girls, I feel so heartbroken. My deepest condolences go to the affected families. God in his wisdom comfort their grieving souls, their ‘beautiful jewels’ are gone for life. Now let us visit the real issues. Why were the Senior […]
