At the two-day digital festival, which was organized with the Impact Hub Accra and supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as its main partner, over 2,000 international participants came together in Accra to discuss questions such as net neutrality, data protection, civil rights, and other digital and societal issues such as „Access“, „Waste“, „Future“, „Female“, „Tech for good“ and „Data“ under the motto ‘next level’. The majority of the 274 speakers came from throughout Africa. Around the globe, the community could follow along via live stream. In her opening speech, “What technology can’t fix”, keynote speaker Nanjala Nyabola, author of „Digital Democracy, Analogue Politics: How the Internet Era is Transforming Politics“ in Kenya, illustrated the key limits but also the opportunities of technology. “It was great to be at re:publica Accra and to see so many leaders of various social and digital rights movements on the continent – and indeed from around the world.“, said Nanjala Nyabola. „I got a chance to share some of the ideas from my research with people from all over the world in a very open and warm atmosphere which I’m truly grateful for.” Another highlight was a fireside chat with Prof. Nii Quaynor, who decisively shaped the internet in Africa and presented his vision of the networked continent. In his talk “How the Media Can Survive in a Facebook Economy”, Bernardino Avle, general manager of the local channel Citi FM & Citi TV, offered a comprehensive overview of the Ghanaian media landscape and its transformation through social media. “What a finale for the year 2018! re:publica marks a new chapter with its first event on the African continent.”, said Andreas Gebhard, managing director and co-founder of re:publica GmbH, is pleased about the successful kick-off in Accra. Tech for good At re:publica Accra, the main partner, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), also announced the extension of the regional program “Make-IT” in Ghana. The program is a joint initiative of BMZ, companies, associations and social enterprises to improve the local framework conditions for technology start-ups in order to open up growth and employment potential for entrepreneurs in the digital sector of partner countries. „The first edition of the re:publica on African soil was an absolute success. In Accra many new ideas were born and connections made between people who want to create digital solutions for Africa. Now it’s time to implement the ideas. We are supporting this with a new digital center in Ghana, which will become a meeting place for start-ups, researchers and governments,” said German Development Minister Gerd Müller (BMZ). The 110-hour program of the re:publica in Accra (#rpAccra) was rounded out by art performances, exhibitions, journalism workshops, film screenings, yoga classes and live music – including rap-matador M.anifest and his band. “The 21st century is African and digital society is global, so we all need to get onto the same level discourse and discuss eye-to-eye. With re:publica, we provide the right platform. One thing is clear: Accra has been a great success, and now let’s all look forward to re:publica 19 in May in Berlin!”, said Andreas Gebhard.

WATCH: Young Ghanaian Deported From Canada Says He Is Having Suicidal Thoughts
A young Ghanaian man narrated a sad incident that happened in his life last year, when he was deported from Canada, just right after he arrived at the airport.
In a video cited on the RIDE AND CHAT YouTube channel, he shared how he had managed to save up to 60,000 Ghana Cedi before the idea of travelling and working outside the country started. He spoke to a group of people he believed were into travel documentation. The trip was organized and then he left Ghana, but things went sour for him upon arrival at the Canada airport, he called the person who was supposed to come to pick him up. To his surprise, the person didn’t pick up his calls.
He continued by saying, he became stranded and didn’t know what to do since that was his first time travelling out of Ghana. While he was at the airport looking stranded, the security team worked with him and interrogated him. The security team even proceeded to help him reach the person who was supposed to pick him up, but he didn’t pick up.
The only option was for him to be deported, but ever since he arrived in Ghana, things haven’t been easy for him. It took prayers and the timely intervention of his pastor that saved him from committing suicide after he had mixed batteries to drink.
