Book of former broadcaster and author Late Mr Sixtus Kobla Aborchie was launched at the British Council, September 30.
The book titled The Saga Of Quini Toto (Keta Gbadegbe) written by Mr Sixtus Kobla Aborchie tells the history of Keta.
The history of Keta is larger than the pages of this brief commentary and the fictional characters employed in its presentation and therefore not a chronicle of the absolute the truth about Keta, but a plausible narrative which seeks to highlight the challenges which faced the Anglo-Ewe in particular and Ghana in general, during the transition from a Colonial state to a new republic.
Mr Sixtus Kobla Aborchie was an alumnus of the class of 1975, of the School of Performing Arts of the University of Ghana, Legon. After his National Service, he taught History and Literature in second cycle institutions both in Ghana and Nigeria. In 1989, he gained employment as a Producer with the Ghana Television where he wrote, produced and directed several plays and programmes. Some of these plays were “Why the Dog is a pet”, “Journey’s end”, “The Misogynist”, “Water, Water… Everywhere”, “H.I.V/AIDS and the Herbalist” and a documentary entitled “Ghana on the Bike”. He produced and directed local drama groups such as Dzigbordi, Gomido, Lorlornyo, Tsitsige and Mawuli.
Among the dignitaries that attended the book launch were Oheneyere Gifty Anti, Ivan Quashigah, Sandra Ankobiah and many others.
The book is said to be distributed nationwide for majority of Ghanaians to get copies and read. Below are pictures from the launch. The images were taken by Ace Photography.
