Kidnapping in Ghana? No Way!

Two Canadian women were reportedly kidnapped on Tuesday at Ahodwo’s Kumasi Royal Golf Club in Kumasi. The kidnapped victims were in the country on a charity mission effort, and very rarely do these types of occurrences happen in Ghana. 

Like many other nations of Africa, Ghana is a multi-ethnic State with mixed religious background and views, yet it’s one leading Sub-Saharan African country known as hub for business growth and political stability and discipline. Since the time of Kwamen Nkrumah, Ghana has never really lost the vision of Pan Africanism, and since the days of Jerry Rawlings, Ghana holds its own firmly. Of over 29 million people who call Ghana their home country, there are folks among them who by choice naturalized from different citizenship of the world to embrace Ghana for good.

Hope the Ghanians worldwide would rise up and send the word out to these perpetrators as well as the future ones that Ghana won’t tolerate hoodlums.
