Addressing some chiefs of the Ga Traditional Council in Accra Thursday, the President said the NPP should feel free to “copy as many things in our manifesto as possible."

Stars defend controversial transgender thriller

A thriller in which a hit-man is forced to undergo gender reassignment surgery has been defended by its stars at its Toronto Film Festival premiere.
In (re)Assignment, Michelle Rodriguez plays a male assassin who awakes to find himself transformed into a woman.

"Quite a few women have said to me that after seeing the movie, they feel empowered by it."
Rodriguez, meanwhile, said her own bisexuality inured it from criticism, explaining: "You can't rea…
