Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has cautioned Ghanaians

against indiscriminate patronage of foreign telenovelas.

According to him, these telenovelas being shown on networks

in the country are not only corrupting women to the point that

their husbands no longer recognize them but destroying cultures too.

The former Nadowli-Kaleo Member of Parliament said this as

a special guest at the launch of a book of a former first Deputy Speaker

of Parliament, Ken Dzirasah titled Defining Moments.

“The telenovelas of today on our television sets are figments of

imaginations, from the cultures they originated from which have

developed into storylines. Very often they have

no bearings on our culture,” he said.

Mr Dzirasah’s book catalogues his trip from the village

to Parliament and beyond.

Mr Bagbin charged the youth and the entire nation to take

to reading to preserve identity.


“These become storylines that captivate us to the extent that

we are not prepared to miss one episode. My concern here

today is about the content and the lessons we pick from them.

It is about the content and its impact on us.

“These days I have been talking to a lot of women to stop watching

those telenovelas because they are corrupting them to the extent

that their husbands may no longer know them,” he added.

The Author of the book, Mr Dzirasah, also cautioned the youth,

who are hastily joining politics as a means of survival,

about what he termed land mines.
