The Most Gifted But Ignored Inventors In Ghana: The Story Of A Father And His Son


Have you ever wondered how possible it is to have a television set that comes on when you clap or when you blow air from your mouth? Have you ever thought about being in a car without engine that simply starts when you push a button sewn to your dress? Have you ever had a speaking change-over-machine that tells you the exact location of a fire or an electrical fault in your home? if you have ever imagined any of the above, imagine no more because they have become reality. This is neither fantasy nor magic. Surprised? Don’t be, these things are being produced in Ghana not in America, Asia, or Europe.

Thanks to Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo, owner of the Kantanka Group of Companies, Africa can now boast of inventors. Apostle Safo is a naturally talented Inventor, Preacher, Innovator, Physicist, Chemist, Biologist, Agriculturalist and Philanthropist. He has no formal technical background, yet he thinks, dreams, imagines and invents as he pleases, he is a master of himself.

His “city” is a large tract of land at Gomoa Mpota in the central region of Ghana which is about 45 minutes drive from Accra the capital city. His flag ( blue, red, yellow and white stars embossed on the blue hue ) is placed at the junction on the highway leading to his location. The city is vast with big buildings and an atmosphere that is pretty much engaging and amazing. The more interesting thing about the location is that it has tortoises of which the oldest is 40 years and also a porcupine, proving Safo’s great affinity with nature.
