Childhood sexual abuse is a public problem around the world. This is not only because of the ever increasing numbers of victims but also due to the detrimental effects that it has on the survivors. Most of the survivors employ different coping strategies with the hope of moving forward with life. The objective of the study was to access gender differences in coping strategies employed by survivors of child sexual abuse. Descriptive study design was used when conducting the study. Both quantitative and qualitative data was collected so as to have a holistic approach. 60 participants where part of the study out of which 50 where girls and 10 where boys. The study was conducted at YWCA in Lusaka. In this study 50.9% girls and 85.9% boys received counseling after being abused. Counselors were the most preferable people to talk to by most of the participants as 30.2% girls and 85.7 boys said they talked to the counselor with the hope that they will move on. In addition according to the results more boys, 71.4% had moved on after the abuse as compared to girls 67.9%. The findings showed that boys opened up more than girls who preferred to talk to no one.

Literary Analysis of Kukula Praise Songs

This study does a literary analysis of three Kasena traditional song texts sung in devotion to Kukula, a divinity revered by the Kayara of the Upper East Region of Ghana. The study defines these song texts as being part of Kasem oral literature because they have not been documented in writing but are only performed orally. The analysis reveals that the praise singers in their performances of the songs use poetics devices such as proverbs, rhetorical question, metaphor, personification, paradox, oxymoron, synecdoche, symbolism, imagery and repetitions of varying degrees. They also use allusions, alliteration and assonance. Our study of these songs reveals that these performers have a mastery of many artistic devices native to Kasem. The study clearly shows that even though the performers of these traditional songs are merely performing religious and social activities, they use literary language during their compositions; thus making Kasena traditional song texts artistic composition. These 3 songs were recorded and transcribed by the researcher in Kayᴐrᴐ, a village in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

The paper examines the effect of inflation on consumer spending behaviour in Ghana during the period 1964 to 2013 using annual data. The analysis of the results was done using Ordinary least square test (OLS), the Johansen test (JH), and Vector Error Correction (VECM) test. The findings of the studies based on the JH tests showed stable significant long run relationship between inflation and consumer spending behaviour. The findings of the study shows significant short run relationship between inflation and consumer spending using the VECM. The results of the OLS test show there is positive relationship between inflation and consumer spending behaviour.
