The African Passover

(excerpt from the book, Laughter of a Crazy Man)

Matu was amazed at the totally captivated crowd gathered around Botoe. His voice was strong, his presence electrifying and his eyes focused not on the crowd but on the horizon like he saw a vision in the heavens. A few months ago, Daniel Botoe was excommunicated from her Jehovah’s Witness group, and she hated to admit it, but he was the best preacher and evangelist she had ever seen. Read full story...

Two Hateful Brothers

(With Permission from book, Laughter of a Crazy Man)

Nothing could satisfy Zakpa. The great warrior Chief had conquered endless territory but still wanted to control more. He had many sons and daughters but worried they were all lazy and none had the fire and aggression to walk in his footsteps. Read more...

The Baboon and the Boy

(With Permission from book, Laughter of a Crazy Man)

Merma was the most beautiful woman in her country, and many men sought her heart, but she preferred Kai since he alone could bear her bad ways and nasty attitude. She was angry, her words were always bitter and she did not praise or love anyone. Read full story...

Viewpoint: What it's like to be an African in the US

As protests rock the US following the death of African-American George Floyd in police custody, Kenyan journalist Larry Madowo writes about the racism he has experienced in the country.

In my first week in New York City last summer, I was invited to dinner at a friend's penthouse on the wealthy Upper West Side.

I picked up some fruit for her and arrived at her building carrying a plastic bag.

The front desk sent me through an open courtyard to the back of the building, past residents' garbage bags and into a surprisingly dirty lift.

When I got off upstairs, my host opened the door mortified, all the colour drained from her face.

"My racist doorman thought you're a delivery guy and made you use the service elevator," she explained as she apologised. Read more...

“Ambassador Kemayah Stresses Need for Adequate, Predictable and Sustainable Funding for UN Resident Coordinator System to Deliver A Coherent and Accountable Response to National Needs and Priorities”

(New York, June 2, 2020) Liberia's Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and Permanent Representative to the United Nations, His Excellency Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah, Sr. has stressed the need for adequate, predictable, and sustainable funding for the United Nations Resident Coordinator System as essential to delivering a coherent, effective, efficient and accountable response to National Needs And Priorities.

Stressed Ambassador Kemayah: “It is laudable that the reinvigorated Resident Coordinator System is now in place; and the new system is taking shape with UN Country Teams. Liberia is a very good example of the prospects of the UN Resident Coordinator System. We thank the UN Secretary-General for this endeavor, and DSG Amina Mohammed for her effort in this direction; as well as our Resident Coordinator Kingsley Amaning and his Country Team in Liberia for the hard work. However, as also underscored in the report of the Chair of the UN Sustainable Development Group; the need for adequate, predictable and sustainable funding; which is essential to delivering a coherent, effective, efficient; and accountable response; in accordance with national needs and priorities; demands all of our attention. Finally, on behalf of His Excellency President Weah, and the Government and People of Liberia; we thank the Secretary-General, DSG Amina Mohammed; and RC Kingsley Amaning and His UN Country Team; and re-affirm our unwavering commitment and support to the Charter, Reform Agenda of the UN Secretary-General and the workings of the United Nations”.

Akinwumi Adesina: Why the US is targeting a flamboyant Nigerian banker

The US and the African Development Bank have fallen out over allegations of corruption against the bank's Nigerian head, writes former BBC Africa Business editor Larry Madowo.

Akinwumi Adesina is a sharp dresser known for his expensive tailored suits, immaculate white shirts and an endless supply of colourful bow ties.

But the clean public persona of the 60-year-old president of the African Development Bank (AfDB) is now being questioned after a string of corruption and abuse of office allegations from his own staff spilled into the open. Mr Adesina has denied all the allegations.

The board of governors of the 55-year-old institution met on Tuesday to discuss whether to bring in an outside investigator into the allegations concerning the Nigerian's conduct just days after the US rejected an initial inquiry that cleared him. Read more...
