Ghanaian Community in France. My tears and worried. Nothing is challenging, nothing is tempting, there is no vision and a vacuum of ideas and direction. I can pickpoint some individuels who make the attempt to carry the batton to persue the race but often fail and yes their failure is not because of bad ideas but they are sorrounded with ill minds, weak mind but above all narrow minds. But how do i proof that, the point is, they all think the same.
When a Man break out of that shield, associates with intellect and thinking minds to embark on fruitful venture, such person is classified as “too know” “wabaso papa” “wonbu ade3” “wonp3 nipa” etc. So what do i see, stupidity, low life, poverty and pervert life. But why, the reasons lies in their head quaters and central market, la briche and Chateau Rouge respectively.
There have never been a single saturday of the month that they refuse to organise a funeral. Funerals have become part of them to the extent that, their energy, mind and planning, investments and interesting are spent solely on every saturday. Hence funerals making have become a hottest investments compelling people to export and import funerals. Don’t laugh but it is true, i happened to find myself in one of those funerals grounds, and this conversation ensued:
Man: eish Frank, but why? It’s been long time.
Me: started scratching my head and responded, oh yes, it’s been ages.
Man: i am Happy to see you again, as for this funerals, it was worth coming because the Man is famous in this country and please make sure that every “nsaab)” you pay, your name shall bé registered in the book. (NB: “Nsaab)” token of money or gift, giving at the funerals grounds)
Me: which book
Man: eish, WE have a book that contain list of people who comes to the funeral and pay something, WE keep that book and when yours comes WE shall look through and honour your funeral accordingly.
Me: oh i see.
Dear readers this is what the Ghanaian community in France is all about. I love Ghanains and the Ghana communiqués in France but the truth is, i never feel or compelled to challenge, when i mingle with them. For instance, if you take 10 Ghanains and asked him or her, so why all these suffering, responds: 9 out of the 10, i want to acquire some peace’ of Land and build a house in home country. Eventually they succed in building those houses yet never lives in them and even those who goes to live in them cannot survived because of economic hardship, meaning, they lacked investments.
Ghanaian Pupil and students is one of the most disturbing factor that takes me aback.
I mean, éducation systeme hère in France is composed of accessibility, assesibility and affordability. Meaning, there cannot bé an excuses to deny yourself higher studies yet 6 out of 10 Ghanaian pupil are school drop out. Even those few who managés to the Senior High school, they are often compelled and forced by their parents and community to stop the éducation and get some job to help the family.
I bear witness of a cutest girl whose level of intelligence caught my heart, she was on several occasion undergone through psychological torture. Simply because she has Said to her parents she wants to complete university before she works and get married. The parents considered that as an insult and disrespect to them.
Ladies and Gentlemen, i présent to you Ghanains community in France part one…….

Alandu Kwaku Frank I am not agaist building a house what i am agaist is having a house but leaving to beg. It’s about setting the right priorities. Considering this: how about making the right investment and channeling the plough back profit in buying home or constructing a house. That is to say, it is worth with respect to responsabilités in contribution to the lives of majorité than prioritising on a house that house you and few yet lavishing in poverty. I think WE should learn to set our priorities right. Mans wants are insatiable, our priorities when set right grant us the power to bé indépendance.

Patrick Kwame Sarpong Dumorine Visit www.GhanaInFrance.com and check GiF Making Difference http://www.ghanainfrance.com/news/?cat=12 ….. You got it all wrong. Read yourself again….as from next week GiF TV is bringing out additional over 500 Ghanaians in France who are making it big!
Who are you to talk about our people in Château rouge? What do you know ? Go there and see for yourself the number of stranded Ghanaians from all parts of Europe they save over there! Not to talk about those they feed daily for ages now!
Massa, if you have ideas, bring them lets go!
Patrick Kwame Sarpong Dumorine Massa stop! You just don’t know this community, thats all! But I must admit you have lots of words.
All your wisdom mentioned above are all going on, you just don’t know or refuse to know. Google Tata Gifty ect….
When did Ghanaians start coming to France. Who are those who first came to this French speaking country? Lots of factors lead to saying a people is doing well or not.
Change where you seek knowledge about our communty.
I will say we are one of the best Ghana Diaspora Communities in the world, taking more factors we have addressed onwww.GhanaInFrance.com into consideration.
You stand on Pigalle to discribe France! No!
Nyarko Ameyaw Kwame Kantinka “I can pickpoint some individuals who make the attempt to carry the batton to persue the race but often fail and yes their failure is not because of bad ideas but they are surrounded with ill minds, weak mind but above all narrow minds”Frank do you remember the very first time I met you and the advice I gave you? My only concern is about the children who are lucky to be born here and have all the opportunity that they can use to improve their potentials but what do we see?school dropout.but I don’t blame them because charity begins at home.because how as a parents able to empower them to take advantage of the system?the response IS NO.the only thing that you might here a parents saying about his or children achievement is”do you know that my child is working in KFC,leclerc,and other big supermarket. Aba! IS this an achievement?the only people who are doing the best are either s/he was brought from Ghana and some few girls aside that the boys are worst.
It is good to make an investment in Ghana but the question is should it also happened at detriment of our children?how do we envisage our children future?how do we empower our children to take the opportunity and potentials in the French system?if we refuse to consider this but rather focusing in building house in Ghana where you can not stay there more than three months,then I see it as absurd. You are absolutely on the point it’s total reflection of the GHANAIANS community in France. You don’t need any apc all one cannot say you get wrong without providing any concrete facts to dispute your argument.if they have any facts that can prove you wrong, they should bring it out on this platform so that we can debate it scrutinized it.I put this challenge to them to prove you wrong. After all we are all looking for a generation that we can all be proud of.keep the FIRE burning and ignore those who don’t want to face the truth because they might feel guilty or might not serve their interest.
