A short play depicting a day in the life of an African Child. The Author targets readers of all ages, and particularly the youthful reader. The style is free flowing, informative, educative, and entertaining.
I was born in Winneba in 1951, and started my primary education in 1957 at the Methodist School in Winneba and moved to Suhum Methodist School in 1960. I had my Secondary education at Mfantsipim School in Cape Coast, and completed my first degree in social studies at the University of Ghana. I pursued a professional career in Banking and Finance. As a child growing up first in Winneba, and then continuing my formative years in Suhum in the Eastern Region of Ghana, my budding intellect experienced its first jolt with the rush of new experiences. Then a microcosm of Ghana in terms of ethnic and vocational representation, Suhum offered deep insights into the very meaning of the Ghanaian spirit, predicated by love for one another with hardly any traces of ethnic, religious or social tensions. Or perhaps I was not mature enough then to notice such things. This short play draws on my childhood experiences in Suhum, a cosmopolitan town in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
