    Posted by in Blog , Miscs , News , Random Musings , Short Stories 0

     a short story   For reasons I can’t yet fathom, girls, among some of their mysterious personalities, like to introduce us (boys) to their parents. I am not in a hurry to let my old folks know about ANYTHING, most especially about my girl-friends. But then Ama, that’s my girl-friend’s name, is very different from […]

    Zimbabwe: The Algebra of regime change

    Posted by in Blog , Polemics 1

      According to the lies being peddled by the racist Western media, Zimbabwe is another glaring example of black’s incapacity for self-governance. According to this script, black people are simply ill-equipped mentally, physically, emotionally and intellectually to manage their affairs without the guiding hands of compassionate and altruistic whites. To these white Supremacists, president Robert […]

    Living on less than one dollar a day

    Posted by in Blog , Polemics 2

    I am always amaze at the length Europeans will go to portray Africa and Africans in bad light. From AIDS (supposedly wiping out whole societies in their mythical ‘sub Saharan’ Africa) to Mad Cow disease (claimed to be caused by game meat imported by Africans in Britain) everything bad has to have an African origin. […]

    Sirens for Envoys?

    Posted by in Blog , Polemics 0

    When early on Sunday the 4th of February 2007, I saw two police motor outriders blaring their siren and clearing traffic on the Kasoa-Winneba road, I thought it was one of our new local potentates abusing the already much-abused system of unnecessary siren-blaring. I was seriously surprised when I saw that it was a black […]

    Ghana Police Farce

        Hardly a day passes without a report of a police sleaze being mentioned here or there. In order to find out why the reputation of our men in blacks have suddenly nose-dived so badly, I went to look for some answers at the Police headquarters in Accra. The Public and Corporate Affairs department […]

    G8 Blues

    Posted by in Blog , Satire 0

    (satire by Femi Akomolafe)   Frank Owusu, the Chief Protocol Officer at the mouthfully-named Ministry of Foreign Affairs, NEPAD and Regional Integration (let’s call it MINFARI) here), was in an ebullient mood when I met him last week.
