Scrambling for Sleep in the City of Accra

Sleep is no longer a free fancy in the city of Accra. You have to purchase sleep with your soul itself in some swanky Ridge or Cantonments neighbourhood. Or if you live on the obliging outskirts, you can catch a scrap of sleep, after you’re too traffic-tired to savour sleep. And you seem to have to wake up as soon you hit the sack because you must flee from home before first light if you want to make it to work before brunch time.


  1. ...and woe betide you if you are bolding the commute to/from Tema at close of business.

    Come to think of it, this is prime time for radio stations. Listeners are pretty much trapped - sitting in barely moving metal containters with their radios often providing the only form of escape.

  2. Shouts out to Awudome Estates, yeah!

    @ Anonymous..Captive radio station listeners. No wonder they don't bother to improve!
