I Am Sorry For President Mahama

Sunday, October 26, 2014
While I believe that as fallible beings, humans do make mistakes and blunders here and there, now and again, nevertheless, I am not a great believer of apologies, although I know how genuine apologies sound, read and feel like. And I sincerely dont believe that Dr. Kpessah Whyte meant even the ...

Tuesday, October 21, 2014
To say that it was an apocalyptic blowout grossly understates matters.
