"The chick that will grow into a giant cock is noticed immediately it is hatched".  I couldn't hide my excitement when I read on facebook that ma lil gal of yesterday (EMELDA MILLS-PAPPOE) is contesting in this year's MISS GHANA beauty pageant. I have known Emelda since 1999 when I first set foot at the then Circle Branch of Word Miracle Church International, now, Perez Chapel International.  Growing up in the Children's Service, Emelda was very respectful, cool and amiable, such a personality that I always wanted to be associated with. She did her best by coming to church early to tidy up the place and assisted in whichever way her strength could carry her. Her contribution in the Drama Group where I was the patron was very enormous, that the group always had something to put up during Children's Day or Week celebrations.

A few weeks ago, my Unit undertook a field work which took us to some manufacturing firms in Accra. In the Managing Directors' offices were large screens which were being fed with information from the CCTV cameras mounted all over the premises. I kept telling and asking myself questions that needed no answers.

Many a watchman have been held prime suspects in cases of theft and armed robbery where their actions have left one with his eye brow raised up in the sky, because he is seen as the protector of lives and properties. But did the Bible…
