Ghana has protested a Cable News Network (CNN) documentary for its poor reflection of efforts by the government to address the detestable practice of child labour on the Volta Lake.

CNN in the past week has been airing a documentary which highlights the history and impact of the practice but does not highlight the efforts by the government in addressing the situation.

A statement issued in Accra by the Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said: “The government on Friday protested the documentary and the fact that it fails to highlight efforts in addressing the situation.”

The statement said Mr Oppong Nkrumah, in a telephone conversation and a subsequent letter to the CNN, said “while GoG acknowledges the practice, it has worked in the last decade to curb it leading to significant successes.”
