11. In January 2016 Renel Ghana foundation launched TECA (The Enemy Called Anger, Kill It) campaign. What this project seeks to achieve is to educate the public especially the youth about anger and its consequences. What anger has done to other African Nations and how to prevent it especially we at Renel Ghana sat down to examine critical issues that have come up in our society recently and we identified Anger as a root cause for many of these negative actions that occur. We see in the news and hear on radio these days about people pouring acids on their fellow human beings, people setting houses on fire and destroying properties running into millions of Ghana cedis; people butchering others with machetes, inflicting severe wounds on them and sometimes killing them, among others. All of these things come about as a result of anger and this has influenced our decision to initiate and champion a strong campaign against TECA, The Enemy Called Anger (kill it!), most importantly in this election year. We educated the general public on anger and its devastating effect on we as individuals, our friends, families and the society as a whole and most importantly how to manage anger during the electioneering period. TECA seeks to campaign against the root cause of wars in other African countries and how to deal with it or control it.
