>I have started writing a column in the ‘Sunday World’, a relatively little-known newspaper from the good people of the Global Media Alliance, whose credits include:
- The Silverbird Cinema & Entertainment Store
- The CNN African Journalist of the Year Awards… and more.
The column is called ‘Between the Lines‘ and I use it to delve into topical issues from a slightly different perspective than everyone else, bringing up issues I feel are not receiving due interest or simply freeing my mind. So far, I’ve looked at the global economic downturn from a Ghanaian perspective and compared the relationship between Rawlings and Mills to that of Margaret Thatcher and John Major. Tommorow’s column will go into how Ghana is depicted in the foreign press, especially in light of former President Kufuor’s recent gratia package boo-boo.
Without bias – as I thought this before I started writing for them – I think Sunday World is one of Accra’s better newspapers. It sadly has some of the political bias that colours most Ghanaian journals but it makes up for this somewhat in the strength of its writers, who include Kwaku Sakyi-Addo, Emmanuel K. Bensah II, and, dare I say, yours truly.
It is free but, for now, the newspaper is a little hard to find, your best bet being to walk into the lobby of any major hotel in Accra (Golden Tulip’s good) and pick up a copy. In the meantime, I am going to follow the example of one of my favourite Ghanaian journalists and start posting my articles up for mass consumption right here on this blog.
