Yes, today is the day…I didn’t know it, not until I saw the US Embassy Ghana Facebook Page. There staring me in the face was this map entitled Press Freedom Map.

Now if you call up the map using this link and click on Ghana, you will read why Ghana is rated Free-green! Now read the comments following the item on the Embassy Facebook page, including yours truly commenting on Ghana’s failure to pass the Right to Information Act….it seems that the overwhelming opinion of friends of the US Embassy Ghana who braved a comment is that Ghana does not have much freedom of the press for a variety of reasons.

Should you be interested in Ghana’s non passage of THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT, here’s a link to a previous post on the matter. And a second post entitled Hillary Clinton:Checklist for Ghana Visit
