Is life that difficult now? Social media users are speculating about the discovery of a white woman working as a mate.
Ghana has grown so tough that being here is supposedly a living nightmare for not just our locals, but also for foreigners. A popular video has revealed how tough it is to live in Accra.
A foreign woman is shown in the video working as a trotro mate – or, for the more refined among us, a bus conductor.
She was standing outside a trotro, as mates are wont to do.
“Accra, Accra, Accra, UTC, Accra,” she shouted in the video. A stunned bystander, unable to comprehend what he was seeing, decided to videotape.
He posted the clip to the Internet, where it’s generating a lot of waves. While one admirer wondered whether things had become so bad for her that she needed to work as a mate, others speculated that there must be something wrong with her and that she is most likely a spy for her nation.
“She may be a spy,” one suspicious netizen speculated. “I’m hoping she has a work permit?” Another admirer commented, “She should pay her share of the E-Levy.”
Additionally, one social media user said that this demonstrates Ghana is a nation where everything is possible.
