The Mirror WhatsApp groups: A necessary nuisance
Incessant messages from a WhatsApp Group Chat can be irritating, especially when the conversation is of no relevance to the receiver but it looks like the WhatsApp groups have become the fastest and easiest way to receive news and other forms of information.
Unlike Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms where users have to log in to check updates, notifications from a WhatsApp group pop up immediately they are sent; all the user needs is an active data connection.
General information and jokes about fairly recent topical issues like the Anas video on the judges and the ex-Guantanamo Bay detainees in Ghana spread with incalculable speed mainly through Whatsapp groups chats, thereby igniting a lot of conversations among users.
Rev. Clement Anchebah

He decided to practice the animal husbandry programme he pursued at the university, and for which posted to that station in the first place, and also to preach the gospel to his people.

When the Ghana Hotels Association (GHA) holds its first national awards ceremony at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra tomorrow, January 23, the performance of the all-women Les Femmes band is likely to be one of the delightful items on the programme for guests.
