As a journalist who reports from the law courts, I have refrained from running commentary on the Gregory Afoko case because of two reasons –the matter is still in court and whatever commentary could prejudice the case.
A USA-based philanthropist last Saturday, July 13, donated an amount of GH₵1,500 to Madam Charity Kissi to help her solve some of the numerous challenges she is currently facing, including the upkeep of her children.
Everyone knows how badly Pastor Ronny Armah has always wanted to have a daughter― even to the extent of naming his only son “Ewura”.

Komla Agbeli ‘Afro Gbede’ Gbedemah of Anyako was a revolutionary youth activist and an iconic statesman who, as a senior architect of both the modern Ghanaian state and Republic, played a critical role in shaping the political landscape of our nation for decades. He is widely recognised as the mastermind who propelled the image of Kwame Nkrumah - the father of Pan-Africanism - to national attention.
The last week or so has been quite a stormy one for the legislative arm of government, with news that the Parliamentary leadership is gearing itself up for the construction of a new, $200m, 450-seater parliamentary chamber.
