The Day The GOP "Got It's Country Back". -
That, my friends, is the sound of a defeated man. A man who probably misplayed the first couple of years of his Presidency and as a result has been the world's most well paid lame duck for the past 4 years. The epilogue of his 2 terms has yet to be written, but I'm pretty sure it's going to include the words "potential" and "disappointment" more times than a Robert Griffin III scouting report. With that in mind, I'm also certain the President is going to try and get something, anything done over the next 2 years because he wants to remembered as something for other than being "The First Black President". - Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah

Zambia has to be one of the most frustrating places on the continent. We are annoyed by our country because its people are needlessly poor due to terrible management of resources by administration after administration. But then our country is equally wonderful to be in – a happy, heady place that’s so easy on the soul. - Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah
Being tough: young Liberians’ coping strategies in refugee camps -
in refugee camps a vicious cycle of health hazards and the loss of livelihoods, social support networks and cultural traditions. The Buduburam Refugee Settlement in Ghana, set up to host Liberian refugees in 1990, is a classic example. - Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah
