Thursday, February 23, 2017
For a government that had been taking undue advantage of Muslims and Zongo residents and left a humongous debt of GH? 33 million by its gross mismanagement of the Hajj Board, it is rather interesting to hear Mr. Samuel Okudzeto-Ablakwa, one of its leading shills and prime beneficiaries, obscenely ...

Things Are Really Bad At Home, Sister Ayorkor

Monday, February 20, 2017
