I didn’t court the stream of consciousness. It just surfaced from deep within my psyche, and only because I had read Ghana’s Daily Graphic on the internet.

Financial engineering 101

I have been wondering about the new “discipline” everyone in Ghana is talking about. It is called “financial engineering”, and it is such a neat way of making money that I have decided to set up an institution to teach others the science behind it.

Forty years after his brutal murder, Robert Mensah, the Ghanaian goalkeeper is still fondly missed and remembered for his mesmerising vitality and incredible bravery on the pitch.

Brass Band Blues

If you are not ill, don’t drink medicine prepared for someone who is ill, for even your mother might upbraid you for being too “huuhuu” (too forward) when you start to throw up. It happened to me.

We Were Just Simply Magnificent

A moment of sublime greatness for Ghana football – Czech Republic 0, Ghana 2. It was a sweet, sweet victory – it showed us the true meaning of a joy that is perfect in every respect; a victory made sweeter by the faith it had regenerated in us, in our Black Stars.

The Zidane Finale

The Akan people of Ghana have canonised the idea of cause and effect with a proverb that says: “If nothing had gone and stamped on the dried palm leaf, it would not have crackled noisily” (Biribi ankoka papa a, enka ennye twereder).

An Irreplaceable Love

Nana Yaa Difie of Kokofu (popularly known as Beryl Karikari) was my dear wife of 43 years. She was snatched away from me on 9 February 2007. May the Almighty hold her hand and sing her softly softly to sleep – to sleep, perchance to dance.

How The Daily Telegraph Opened My Eyes To Racism

If you nobble a country politically at birth by handing it to your apes, because they can read and write English, you don’t deserve to sit back in judgement over yourself and say, narcissistically: “How great we were. If only they had done what we instructed them to do!” Pure tosh!

Mo Ibrahim Prize: A case Of Misplaced Priorities?

I wish that I could say I am enthusiastic about the Mo Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership. But even though its motive is impeccable, it is likely to be viewed with derision, for there just are far too many causes in Africa in more urgent need of monetary assistance, than what could legitimately be seen as the “pampering” of former heads of state.

So James Watson Is 16% Black Himself?

Surprise surprise, Dr James Watson, the DNA “expert” who recently claimed that Africans were less intelligent than whites, has been found to be 16% black himself! – the embarrassment that awaits all racists.

Oh! That This Should Happen To Kenya

The election chaos in Kenya has made an eloquent case for UN involvement in elections likely to be rigged or lead to confusion. The UN has election machinery that has enabled it to successfully supervise, or be involved, in elections in such countries as East Timor, Cambodia, Namibia, Mozambique, Nicaragua and Haiti. So why not formalise it?

The Lonely Aspect Of Pain

Why hasn’t a single one of the guys who jumped about and drank champagne with me when Ghana was doing well in the African Cup of Nations tournament, phoned to share my pain at the calamity of Cameroon turfing us out of it?
