New Africa Foundation Convention cancelled at 11th hour

The highly anticipated New Africa Foundation Convention, which aimed to bring together Africa’s thought leaders to address key challenges in the continent’s development, has been abruptly cancelled. Tension filled Ghana’s Independence Square in Accra as New Force supporters were barred from accessing the venue.

These passionate individuals gathered at the square, passionately singing patriotic songs and demanding entry to the event. Surprisingly, armed military personnel and police officers guarded the entrance, preventing the public from attending. The reason behind this unexpected turn of events remains unclear. Notably, this clash between the government and the New Force group is not an isolated incident.

In November 2023, billboards bearing the name “New Force” mysteriously appeared throughout the country. The spokesperson for this emerging political movement, Shalimar Abbiusi, was subsequently arrested a month later.

Ms. Abbiusi had been caught on video announcing plans for the next election. However, her ambitions were cut short as she was apprehended and taken to court for allegedly falsifying her student residency permit. Although the state dropped all charges against her, the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) re-arrested her outside the courtroom and deported her.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
