Management and Council of the University of Education Winneba (UEW) have called on Amnesty International Global to take disciplinary action against two of its board members, Dr. Vincent Mensah and Samuel Agbotse because they are not pursuing the core mandates of the organization.

Court hearing of the case by the concerned Assembly Members in Cape Coast who are contesting the allocation of stalls at the Kotokuraba market has been adjourned to the 28th of May, 2018.

The Public Relations Officer of the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, Mr. Richmond Yeboah says the decongestion exercise the assembly is embarking on at the Abura and Kotokuraba markets is about 80 percent complete.

Professor Devalerie NYM Botchwey of the history department of the University of Cape Coast has challenged the concept that Africans must dispel ways adopted from the colonial order emphasizing that a total return to African culture and ideals is impossible.

Professor Botchwey explains that the advancement of Africans can be realized in a form of a dialectic where syntheses could be drawn from careful consideration of both old ways of the African and the new ways of adaption of colonial culture.
