Ghana has been added to the list of its visa-free countries, the South African Government has announced.
In a post on South Africa’s Home Affairs Twitter handle, the country indicated that Ghanaians will no longer need visas to travel to the Southern African country henceforth.
Other countries that were added to the list of visa-free countries include Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, and Sao Tome and Principe.
A separate statement from the Home Affairs Minister, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi said: “Out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free status to 75 countries.”
He said, out of the number “16 are in our [African] continent and are SADC members and 59 are from all over the world.”
He went on further to announce seven countries that have been added to the visa-free list which included Ghana.
Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi said they “will immediately enter into discussions with them about how a visa-free regime will work. We still have some homework to do for 3 countries whose combined populations make up close to 30% of the world’s population i.e. China, India, and Nigeria,” the statement added.”
Below are excerpts of the statement by the Home Affairs Minister with regards to visa waiver:
While the Home Affairs Department core mandate is issuing identification, we also contribute significantly to economic growth.
We do this by making life easier for our sister Departments such as Tourism to boost their tourism figures. Tourism will soar if we relax visa requirements for entry into South Africa. We know that Tourism is very important for job creation.
Out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free status to 75 countries. Of these 16 are in our continent and are SA
DC members and 59 are from all over the world.
Today, we wish to announce an addition to our visa-free countries.
Today, we wish to announce an addition to our visa – free countries.

Cristiano Ronaldo Hits New Milestone After Scoring 700th Career Goal
Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 700th goal of his professional career during Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifying loss to Ukraine on Monday, October 14th.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner brought up his septuple century for club and country when he converted a second-half penalty in Kiev, awarded after Taras Stepanenko handled the ball inside the box.
It was his 95th goal for Portugal, with only Iran’s Ali Daei (109) ahead of him on the all-time international goals list.
Ronaldo is just one of six footballers to have hit the 700 mark, with Josef Bican estimated to be the top goalscorer in history with 805 goals. Behind him is a pair of former Brazilian stars in Romario and Pele, who finished their illustrious careers with 772 goals and 767 goals, respectively. Ferenc Puskas’ 746 career finishes and Gerd Muller’s 735 round out the top five.
Ronaldo’s long-time rival, Lionel Messi, looks set to join the 700 club imminently, as the Argentine is currently sitting on 699 career finishes. The bulk of Ronaldo’s goals came for Real Madrid, 450 over the course of nine seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2009 and 2018.
‘I Don’t Mind If My Man Cheats, So Far As He Is Honest & Loyal’ : Lady
A typical Ghanaian lady won’t hesitate to forgo their boyfriends whom they have caught cheating, however, this lady thinks otherwise as her statement on Twitter says so.
A Twitter user has claimed that she doesn’t mind if her boyfriend cheats so far as the guy is honest and loyal to her. In her tweet, she wrote;
“I’m the type of woman who will let her man fulfill all his sexual fantasies and heart desires. All I need is transparency and honesty.
I want to trust you with my life! You want a bloody orgy? I’ll arrange it! Just talk to me and don’t make me have reasons to doubt you!”
PHOTOS Of Man Easing Himself On Jubilee House Grass Goes Viral
The majority of us have been in that situation when we have that deadly stomach upset while in town and there is no place of convenience closer for one rush and let go of the waste.
Sometimes we try begging people around to allow us to use their washrooms, some may agree others might give excuses because its hard to trust people these days.
In a rather bizarre twist, a man has been captured in a photo with his pants down allegedly easing himself on the beautiful lawns in front of the Jubilee House, the seat of Ghana’s government.
It is not clear whether or not the man is mentally stable or he’s on a one man protest against the recent hikes in prices of goods and services which has affected the fee per user for attending nature’s call.
A recent public service notice which went viral on social media had indicated that the fee per user for attending to nature’s call at a public toilet had also been affected, increasing from GHC0.50 to GHC1.00.
Twitter user, @Amegaxi, shared the photo on his handle with a caption which said: ”I just saw someone taking a sh!t around Flagstaff House.”
See Screenshot below.
As it stands now, it is also not very clear yet whether or not security camera’s around the Jubilee House captured the man early enough for the needed action to be taken.
