Scrap short term tourist visas to Ghana: Is this why?

April 21, 2014

5

After almost a year campaigning, sometimes I think there is no way the scrap short term tourist visas to Ghana campaign can succeed! On a macro level, for so long a time, Ghana, despite all the international hype, fails…and in the tourism sector, there have been nothing but bad memories…. And heaven forbid, if we […]

I often buy THE AFRICA REPORT magazine to put out as reading material at Four Villages Inn.

Background: Nana Oye Lithur is a high-profile, gutsy Ghanaian human rights lawyer who champions all human rights including those of homosexuals here in Ghana where it is a crime.

Jackie shared another picture which I just shared on my Christopher Scott Facebook page “You can size somebody up by the bumper stickers.” So what are my bumper stickers: 1.
