Ghana: Racial Baby Business Booming
By Stephen Kwabena Effah
In Ghana, they are regarded
as hotcakes. Their complexion put them on a fairly higher pedestal, as they are
the ones every guy or lady craves to date - the half-caste!
But ever thought that a time
will come for half-caste babies to be bred in Ghana? Well, thanks to modern science, one can have a half-caste
or mixed-race baby without necessarily having to marry or have sexual
intercourse with a person of different race.
Following in the steps of artificial insemination, a novel
venture to create a new society –‘Half-caste World’- on the African continent
is bourgeoning in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
As ridiculous as it may seem,
considering the fact that the word ‘half-caste’ denigrate one’s status in
society, especially in Europe and the Americas, advocates of this enterprise
believe the creation of this breed of people of bi-racial identity positions Africa
for a better future.
“Half-caste World is founded
to transform Africa into the land of riches and beauty, the land of every man’s
dream. We believe life began in African and will end in Africa,” the advocates
posted on their Facebook page.
The campaign is targeting
both African couples and single women
who are desirous of giving birth to half-caste babies the opportunity of a
lifetime at a relatively affordable cost.
Although the advocate of this
campaign has not revealed his identity, investigations conducted by
www.infoboxx.com pointed to one Augustine N.K. Boateng, a graduate of
“University Mohammed Premier”hotc in Morocco.
When contacted on a phone
number provided on his newly created
website, he declined to provide details on the procedure and the level
of patronage, saying “I just started it and wouldn’t want to involve the media
at this early stage”.
However, our investigation
revealed he started operating about four months ago from Madina Estates in
It was further revealed
that Boateng provides gametes from almost all nationalities including the UK
and the US at a cost of 3,000 US Dollars upwards, depending on the process and
the individual’s request.
There are questions about how
gametes are procured, the insemination procedure and even the regulatory
regime. Boateng claims that the procedure to insert the “gametes can be
done both in a clinic and at home.”
