K.B. Asante
The year began on a sad note when we lost Ghanaian diplomat, politician and writer, Kwaku Baprui Asante. This sad event occurred on the 22 January, at a ripe old age of 93 years. Nevertheless, this didn't lessen the pain that his absence created in our hearts. He served as secretary to Ghana's first president amongst other succeeding presidents. He served Ghana well. Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur
