Global Shapers Accra Condemn Xenophobia in Accra Discourse

Xenophobia was one of the biggest issues discussed in the global news media in the month of April. And, many would say, rightly so. Considering the scale of brutality that met foreigners in South Africa in the reprisals, concerned people have gone beyond the countries where the seven people – according to official figures – came from. The conversation may have slackened a bit due to the nature of news that pushes one important issue into the background when fresher ones rear their heads. However, the Global Shapers Accra Hub, a group of influential young people do not want the fire of the discussion to dim. “Africa needs us all, man and woman, boy and girl, hand in hand,” notes Yawa Hansen-Quao, a member of the group tells Joy News. The Global Shapers Accra Hub have a popular monthly session called the Accra Discourse, which usually attracts a crowd of 70-100 on the first Monday of every month. “We usually invite a guest speaker knowledgeable in a particular area to shed light on an issue of interest. This month, we’re doing xenophobia,” says Aisha Ayensu, another member of the hub. This month’s Accra Discourse happens on Monday, May 4 at the La Villa Boutique Hotel in Accra. But why is a discourse on South Africa important to Ghanaians who are many miles away from the killings? Beryl Agyekum, a hub member, offers her view: “We may not be government but each of us runs a small country around us. Don’t act like it’s in far away South Africa. You are South Africa.” Native South Africans will on hand to share their views and perspectives on why their country continues to face challenges in dealing with foreigners. The Shapers tell Joy News that the event will be free to all. “We would like to note that this conversational is social as well, so we’re looking to have a simultaneous social media interaction with our many followers on Twitter and Facebook, both in Ghana and South Africa,” says Gary Al-Smith, another member of the hub.

Video: The next gaming season - Fifa or Pes 2012?

Most of Africa's leagues are in various stages of completion, but the next football seasons in the major leagues start in a few months.

That brings to mind what I'll be playing. Football Manager is standard, of course, but what of the eternal battle between Fifa and Pes 2012?

I'm not sure what will take my fancy, especially with the Fifa 12 trailer looking so awesome. Have a look:

You must admit the new Pes 2012 is looking good as well. The trailer is this way.

I think Fifa has the best gameplay while Pes seem to be better on the graphics and animations.

And so the big decision: what to go for? The people have IGN went debating it.

After listening, I'm still not decided. Guess I'll get both.

Africa Magic: Adel Taarabt (Morocco) v Swansea

Few people remember he made one first team appearance for Lens during the 2006–07 season, but Adel Taarabt has truly found a home in the Queens Park Rangers setup these days.

Here's a great way to tell the big boys to come for you. And mind you, it's not his first great goal for QPR. He's making it a habit.

He's very talented, but somehow he's not found that spark to earn him a big club move. That should change soon.
