Kwaku Sakyi-Addo writes: Fasting at Katanga

I do not know what the arrangements are in Achimota school today. But when I was a student there in the 1970s, Muslim students were allowed to fast If They Chose to do so.

Elizabeth Ohene writes: Culture of noise

I am no longer a paid-up member of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA). I suspect, therefore, that I might not qualify to be called a journalist these days.

Opinion: Stop rushing into marriage

Marriage is not as simple as saying “I do,” it requires effort, time and commitment. The need for rushing into marriage before one’s educational career is completed will only lead to an inevitable downfall and heartbreak.

Pistol P writes: Be concerned as a Ghanaian

As we pour out tributes in solidarity with the family of Ishmael Mensah and many other families who have been in such a situation, we should not forget to pray for them to heal and have the courage to move on.

MANASSEH’S FOLDER: Domelevo, Alhassan and the soldier

Dear Daniel Yaw Domelevo,

I am touched to write your tribute at a time you’re still part of the audience. I must, however, confess that I write this tribute in shame. It is a shame born out of the fact that that I was part of the crowd that helplessly watched your crucifixion.

MANASSEH’S FOLDER: Oppong Nkrumah, Prof. Kwame Karikari did not lie

Dear Kojo Oppong Nkrumah,

I heard you stress at the vetting last week that I had never said I went to South Africa because my life had been threatened. You said it was only Prof. Kwame Karikari who made that claim at a public lecture. You said something to the effect that I went there for a holiday.

The loop wishes to crave your indulgence to join the ongoing debate on the happenings in Accra Hearts of Oak to help rescue the oak tree from being uprooted by visionless and faceless individuals.

Crime protected by law

I have been struggling for a word for the events in Parliament on January 6 and 7. It was not merely a lack of leadership; it was a display of leaderlessness. The former is failure of leaders to show leadership; the latter is absence of leaders. I didn’t see leaders in Parliament.

Voice from Afar (Freedom is Coming)

Fraternal greetings from our Ancestors Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, His Imperial Majesty Emperor Hailey Sellassie and the many others who have lost their lives in the resistance struggle.

Do you want divorce?

THE history of divorce, legal separation of marriage dates back to antiquity. From ancient Mesopotamia to the Roman Empire divorce existed but on a small scale. However today divorce has reached epidemic proportions and most partners have become victims of this monster. 

MANASSEH’S FOLDER: “ERRORtoral” Commission and Akufo-Addo’s coup d’état

When you are aggrieved and bystanders ask you to seek justice in the court, that certainly isn’t bad advice. But that advice can be bad if your adversary is in the process of taking what belongs to you and bystanders and the police, instead of helping you to take back your property, are appealing to you to let him or her take it away so that you proceed to court to fight for it later.

Of the ‘tsunami’ effect, and praise for Ghana’s EC

It wasn’t exactly the overwhelming ‘aseda’ (thank you) votes for President Nana Akufo-Addo that some of us had expected, as I wrote last week, but he has won a second term “to do more”. And victory is victory.
