Prez Mahama’s Scotland visit, Gay bashing claims & Jon Benjamin’s intervention

Another attempt to divert attention from an event that should project the image of Ghana has been foiled. This time it took the intervention of British High Commissioner, Jon Benjamin. “The way the issue has been reported is a bit exaggerated and overstated. The gay issue came up but I can’t give you details, it was one of many issues that was discussed. President Mahama spoke in a large reception room which was full.

How to Plan an affordable Ghana Vacation

Just imagining the cost of a Vacation to Ghana is enough to cause a nervous breakdown. The Country’s Mesmerizing beaches, Luxurious hotels, Landmarks, Reserves and Public parks don’t depict cheap. The average tourist’s orientation of a Ghana vacation makes it seem like it beyond their reach.
