Freemasons describe their society as a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.
But these symbols including a compass and an eye seem to have spawned lots of conspiracy theories.
In fact it’s long been seen as a secret society or cult, a group of men who have sold their souls to the devil.
The Ghana chapter of the society hopes to change these perceptions with the launch of a book titled “The Freemasons,”.
Joy News’ Maxwell Agbagbah caught up with the author of the book, Abraham Gyesie at the Freemason’s Hall in Accra and has come through with this audio report.
Speaking at the launch of the book at the British Council on Wednesday, former President John Agyekum Kufour, who is the Senior Grand Warden of the United Grand Lodge of England, stated Freemasonry is charity work.
