Kenya learns from Ghana


A delegation of Provincial Commissioners from the office of the President of Kenya arrives in Ghana on Saturday to understudy Ghana's conflict prevention approaches.

A statement in Accra on Friday signed by Mr Iddrisu A. Siddiq, Public Affairs and Information Officer of the United Nations Development Programme, said Ghana was selected by the United Nations Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (BCPR) as a best practice country.

The delegation will pay a courtesy call on the Vice-President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama and hold a series of meetings with the Ministry of the Interior, UNDP Resident Representative, National Media Commission and Ghana Journalists Association among other institutions.

Members will also visit Tamale in the Northern region to acquaint themselves with some of the local institutions for building peace in the area and to gain a better appreciation of how Ghana responds to local level conflicts.

The study tour includes familiarizing the group with the communities' efforts in managing their own disputes and share experiences of community conflict resolution.

The Ghana Journalists Association will share with them their experiences on the role of the media in peace building, the Editors Forum and the Ethics and Disciplinary committees, the statement said.
