Background: Nana Oye Lithur is a high-profile, gutsy Ghanaian human rights lawyer who champions all human rights including those of homosexuals here in Ghana where it is a crime.

A belated HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY MADinGhana readers. Yesterday, besides wishing my Ghanaian born daughter a Happy Independence Day, I saluted a Ghanaian friend here in Montreal. His reply, “How old are we now? 54? What have we done?” ENOUGH! Now to the subject of this post. TOMORROW, PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL HOST PRESIDENT MILLS AT THE […]

Well, all these months later, my very criticisms of the government’s decision making for the visit were somewhat affirmed. In the December, 2009 magazine […]

And heaven forbid if there is a repeat […]
