"Proudly AU-frican Thursday":Let's Hear from You!


It's been a while since we discussed some African affairs; I guess at this time of the year, many other thoughts have taken over--and not without reason!

As I write this from a rainy Ghanaian capital of Accra, I cannot help but feel optimistic that after the rain comes the sun.

Africa is beset with numerous problems, but we must and will overcome. If we ever want to make the African Union a one of the people, all of us need to bring pressure to bear on our GOVERNMENTS, who will, in turn bring pressure to bear for AU matters at the international fora of the UN and regional economic communities.

Just because it's not easy does not mean we cannot do it!

A couple of weeks ago, I dictatorially proclaimed THURSDAY as "Proudly Au-frican" day.

I am proud to have THREE identities: Ghanaian first, West African second, Au-frican third.

What about you? WHat are you proud of about Africa today?
