Swedish Television in Ghana

Swedish Television is currently broadcasting a documentary series about the life of Diplomats. In the fifth program of the season, which was broadcast on Monday, they follow a diplomat to Ghana. In the clip above we get to take part of the motorcade taking the Swedish diplomat from Hotel La Palm to the Kotoka Airport in Accra.

I never thought of how scary it must be to actually be part of the motorcade.

The program in Swedish also discusses gin and tonic as a cure for malaria and poor documentation of aid projects. Nothing new there...

Interestingly, a clip of the Swedish diplomats being shown a dirty lagoon when asking to see a successful development project is featured on Ghanaweb under the heading "Who chop-chop the aid money?" I wonder how the clip in Swedish got there.

Thanks for sharing and I do agree that being part of the motorcade is scary. But one question, which I'm sure you can't answer and I find funny is that fact that the police officer finds it necessary to "kick" some of the cars that he passes to make way.

Re the project, it would probably make more sense if one knew what state the lagoon was in before the aid project started. As well, it would be instructive to know exactly what was being done to/about the lagoon.
