- Ghanaian journalist chides Chinese man for littering on the streets of Accra
- The Chinese man was asked pick an empty can he dropped in a gutter
A Ghanaian jouranlist has taken over social media after he challenged a Chinese national to pick up a can he dropped into a drain.
In a 27-second video that has gone viral, Erastus Asare Donkor, who works with Kapital Radio, is seen ordering the Chinese man to take out the can which he had earlier dropped in the gutter.
He continued to insists and ended up forcing the Chinese man to descend into the gutter to pick the trash with his hands.
Ersatus later took to Facebook to post a video of the incident, insisting Ghanaians must not allow foreigners to come here and litter our drains and gutter with trash.
According to him, such things cannot be done in Europe, Asia or anywhere outside the continent and therefore others should not also be allowed to exhibit such habits in Ghana.
He posted the video accompanied by the comment: “So I was driving with Frank Aboagye Danyansah and we spotted this Chinese national dropping a can in the drain...so I told frank that we must not allow this man to repeat what our own are doing to our environment.
“So I parked and we ordered him to pick up his trash. Don't litter the environment. drains are not waste receptacles please.”
His gesture got the attention of many Ghanaians on social media who commended him for taking such a step.
Others also bemoaned the type of careless behavior that most foreign nationals exhibit when in Ghana, whiles calling for stringent measures to be taken against them.
In the video below, the deputy education minister, Mrs Barbara Ayisi, speaks on how President Akufo-Addo inspires her, and how the president's success story must also inspire the youth of Ghana to greater heights:
