The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson, is exploring the country, culture and customs. The Volta Region is one of the places she is visiting.

In some posts on Twitter, the commissioner shared pictures from various activities she had engaged in.

One of them was a cooking lesson delivered by the Member of Parliament for Ketu South Dzifa Gomashie.

Miss Thompson was taught how to cook one of the Ewe’s beloved dishes, ‘akple’. She shared a picture of herself and Dzifa Gomashi in the kitchen.

“Just had my very first Ghanaian cooking lesson! I made akple with Honourable Dzifa Gomashie, MP for Ketu South – I learned it’s all in the stirring! We then sat down with Queen Mothers to eat and talk about the issues facing the local community and how we tackle these together,” she wrote.

Among other things, she also visited the Ho Teaching Hospital and the Volta Star Textiles Factory.

She also paid a courtesy call on Regional Minister Dr Archibald Letsa.

“We talked about our shared ambition for the Region and the importance we both place on providing quality education for all children,” she wrote.
