Well, the venue for the big announcement here in Ghana has been switched from Independence Square to the Accra Convention Centre because of the threat of impending bad weather.

And heaven forbid if there is a repeat of the scary moments when security broke down and Clinton was mobbed at Independence Square.
Anyways, in light of the headline below, just what has Obama got up his sleeve for Ghana and Africa….stay tuned.
