    Young people in Ghana are facing rising unemployment.

    Even highly-qualified graduates have difficulty finding work.

    Critics of the government have taken their protest online, under the hashtag #FixTheCountry.

    There, they vent about many issues from unemployment and the price of fuel, to erratic water supplies, poor healthcare and corruption.

    The government is promising to spend millions of dollars to fix the problem.

    But that’s done little to placate critics.
