The 7th Annual recital of the LU Alumni Chorus

What an impressive evening? I really do not know which was more memorable? The very good music, the various outfits that they have changed into over the years, the self imposed discipline or the sacrifices that they have made?

If Variety is the spice of life, the variety of the music was what made the evening very special.

The outfits did not go unnoticed either.  Started out looking very graceful in their formal western outfits to a Liberian outfit for the more traditional songs. Read more....

Spotlighting Africa’s Democracy

Democracy in Africa is difficult to flourish, because there are too many kleptocrats, autocrats and opportunists flooding the political parameter. A free, fair and transparent election on the continent is rare due to anti-democratic precedents mostly devised by failed and corrupt regimes.

Practicing politics in Africa means risking your life and your family. This I know for a fact! It is too sad that Africa is still at the backseat of the democratic plane. From my lenses, democracy in Africa is a government of the minority, by the minority and for the minority.  Read more...
