Bruce Road, Jamestown British Accra
My good friend Thomas Jefferson will not forgive me for continuing to use the word Accra. He is right, there is no word called Accra in the Ga language but we have moved along culturally with the integration and assimilation of people from different places. The beauty of it all is that there is a Jamestown smack in the middle of Accra that most people who live in Accra do not know.
But it was in Jamestown that we all grew up and it was in Jamestown that our navels were cut and buried and so we continue gravitating towards Jamestown. For me it is to the home of my maternal grandfather that I celebrate the Ga Homowo, but since I am so blest I am also privileged to go the house of my paternal grand uncle’s house at Krobo in Teshie.
