Zambia: The dawn of ‘Rupiah-Bandacracy’ in Africa (2)

In all functional democratic nations, electioneering campaigns are always characterized by many promises by the contesting groups. Manifestos which are documentations of each party’s propramme of action, if voted into power, are always put to the back-burner while empty promises freely flow from various types of mouths on campaign plat-forms

Why Care About Occupied Palestine or Jailed Cubans in Ghana?

A member of the NDC government communication team, Mr. Kojo Twum-Boafo, was in a “no holds barred” mood when he remembered that Mr. Kwesi Pratt Jnr. had, in the previous week, criticised the UN speech of the Ghana President.

J. B. Danquah Was A CIA Asset!

It is funny the way Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr, writes to justify the insults heaped upon Dr. Omane Boamah, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, during last Saturday's Newsfile, a live radio and TV programme on Joy FM and Multi TV.
