The Ndc Must Drop The Propaganda Label Now

Monday, August 4, 2014
The word propaganda is worse than it sounds. In the days heralding the demise of the Soviet Union and the Cold War, I heard the word come up in the conversations of my folks many a time.

Poli ...

Re: No Funds To Pay Stranded Uk Students – Getfund

Saturday, May 25, 2013
I chose this rejoinder to interrogate my President's, John Dramani Mahama, assertion of the 'African renaissance' thesis on the African Day, May 25 2013. I think the assertion is at best populist and misdirected toward an audience that needs to undertake self-reflection in order to aspire to standar ...
