The Daily Graphic charges South Africa to go beyond apologising to country’s whose citizens were affected in the xenophobic attacks. It says the apology is long overdue though it is welcoming. The paper encourages the South African government to go beyond that and put in place concrete practical measures to bring the Xenophobic attacks to an end, to protect lives and property. It hopes the intra continental relationships will be improved to give meaning to the African Economic Integration Agenda.
The Ghanaian Times calls on the Bank of Ghana to come clear on the relevance of the one pesewa coin to the economy. According to the paper, the Head of Communications at Bank of Ghana, Esi Hammond says the bank would soon embark on a public education campaign to sensitize the public to the need to accept the one pesewa coin. The Times says the decision is now left to the bank either to phase-out the one pesewa coin or enforce its usage so as to control the sky-rocketing prices and end the rift between service providers and their clients.
