The Ga Traditional Council has announced that this year’s ban on drumming and noisemaking commences on 13 May to 13 June 2019.

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has, therefore, set the following guidelines in the interest of peace, harmony and national security.

1. During the period of the ban, the usual form of worship should be confined to the premises of churches and mosques; and noise levels minimised to the barest limits possible.

2. Religious bodies and traditional authorities must show respect for one another and restrain their followers from making derogatory and inflammatory remarks about the beliefs and practices of one another.

3. The positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs are banned. Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during this period.

4. Apart from an identifiable taskforce which consists of AMA personnel, the police service and representatives from the traditional councils with tags, no other person or group of persons should be seen or found enforcing the abetment of noise in the metropolis. In addition, residents are to note that all villages and towns under the Ga and Ngleshie Alata traditional councils are affected by this ban.

The ban is in accordance with the traditional rights that precede the celebration of the Homowo festival by the GaDangme people.

Google adds food delivery to Maps and search results

Published

on

Google just added yet another reason to never have to leave its services.

The company is now adding food delivery to the lineup of things you can do directly in Maps and Search without switching to a separate app. Now, when you search for restaurants in either Maps or Search, you can place an order with a new “Order Online” button.

In some ways, it’s similar to the way Google added rideshare services to Google Maps. Like those integrations, you can get a look at multiple delivery services available for each restaurant, along with info about relevant delivery fees. The feature will include DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice, and ChowNow to start, with more services being added in the future.

But while you still need to switch apps directly to hail a ride, you can actually complete your full order without leaving Maps or Search. (Payment will be handled in the app via Google Pay.)

The company is also adding food delivery to its Assistant app, so you can place orders with your voice, or re-order a previous meal. Google says the Assistant functionality is limited to its mobile app for now. Butt it seems like a feature it could eventually bring to its smart speakers, especially now that Google is opening up more functionality of its smart displays to third-parties.
