  • Equal Times - Will Ghana stay dark, go coal or go green?

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist
    • Reporter / Journalist

    Crippled by a 3 years long energy crisis, Ghana is now taking strategic choices that will define how it secures electricity for the next decades. It seems inclined to opt for coal, the cheapest source of energy available. This choice attracts strong criticism by environmental groups and by Ghanian think tanks who deems it a big gift to the influential coal lobby in the country.

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist
    • Reporter / Journalist

    A reportage on the fire at the petrol station that killed over 150 people in Accra. The fire was indirectly caused by the heavy rain that flooded the Ghanian capital in that evening of early June. The incident highlighted the poor maintenance of the (state owned) gas station and the general lack of a urbanist plan to deal with flooding.
