Ghana Association of South Australia

 I had the delightful experience of being invited by the Ghana Association of South Australia to their annual event. I accomnapnied the High Commissioner (Ambassedor) from Canberra, Her Excellency Mrs. Mercy Yvonne Debrah-Karikari, Mr. Rasheed Inusah, Minister for Consular Affairs, and Mr. Saumel Kumah, Minister for Trade & Investment.

The Ghanaian community in South Australia, whilst small in number, is well organised, vibrant and enthusiastically engages with the African community.

Friday night I was treated to a meeting and dinner with the Executive of the Association, meeting its members and a cross selection of the community.

I was very impressed to learn of the Association’s activities and hear how the Association engages its members. They hold monthly women’s’ meetings and, of particular interest the elders passing on important Ghana cultural heritage through stories, teachings of the language Twi and teaching traditional drumming and dancing lessons. This, I feel, is the most important aspect of the Associations’ work.

On Saturday night the Association got together for a “town hall” style meeting so the community could engage with the High Commission and the Sydney Consulate-General asking me a variety of questions. These included discussions about dual citizenship, biometric passports, visas and other important matters.

On this occasion I was thrilled to share a meal with the Community and watch a wonderful cultural display by the Ghanaian youth play traditional drums and dance.

It was truly a wonderful occasion and one that I am most grateful of being part of.

My appointment as the Honorary Consul for the Republic of Ghana is a special one for which I am honoured to serve. I exercise jurisdiction in the States of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Adelaide and PNG and the South Pacific Islands.

The Ghanaian community in South Australia, whilst small in number, is well organised, vibrant and enthusiastically engages with the African community.
The Consulate is unsupported by the Government.
I operate the Consulate using my own resources including travel between Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
