In a recent article (Africa - A continent on the Rise! - https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/africa-continent-rise-dr-amos-mensah/), I quoted the late Nelson Mandela of South Africa who once said: ‘We stand at the dawn of an African century, a century where Africa will take its rightful place among the nations of the world’- how sweet these words of wisdom from a brave African Hero. Unfortunately, the firm grip on Africa and the determination of neocolonial powers as seen through both covert & overt recent events across the continent (notably the destruction of Libya) has prompted me to ask - Will Africa ever Take its Rightful Place among the Nations of the World? I have written a cursory about the internal weakness hindering the growth and the development process across the continent Africa (see: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/africa-missing-opportunity-reap-full-benefits-golden-age-mensah/ ) and so will not repeat it in this article. The focus of this article is to highlight the reality of external meddling and the continued colonization of the continent. I have no doubt these external meddling has played a huge role in the slowing down of Africa’s progress in development.Amos CFA2

As a case study - let look at how the use of the CFA franc has been and still being used to control many African countries. Come to think of it - 14 African countries (i.e. Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon) still use the neocolonial currency – CFA (CFA stands for Coopération financière en Afrique centrale ("Financial Cooperation in Central Africa"). The CFA franc was introduced to the French colonies by France after the colonies gained their independence. Through the adoption and use of this currency, these former colonies still pay what is popularly believed to be a Colonial Tax (perpetual indebtedness to France)How? - Well, by the structure of the Terms & Conditions to use the CFA - these former colonies have to accept to deposit their currency reserves at the French National Bank in Paris. The terms and conditions also dictate that these colonies will have access to only 15% of their own currency deposited at the French National Bank in Paris. The remaining 85% of their own money has to be borrowed from the French Government at the going market rate if they want to access their own deposit. If this is not pure colonialism and the slowing down of progress - I don't know what to call it. Notice that - All finance ministers of these 14 countries must consult and seek directions from the French minister of finance anytime these countries have to meet with the IMF or WB for any financial negotiation. Unlike most real sovereign nations, these 14 countries can’t even print their own money when they need it because the CFA is tired to the EURO.Amos Neo3

The fact is democracy in Africa is a facade - France (and all former colonial powers) never really completed the decolonization process; they have deliberately maintained systems and structures (i.e. Monitory/Economic, Political & Security Structures) that allows them to take full advantage of their former colonies. These colonial structures never allow their former colonies to freely decide on their developmental path. So these 14 CFA countries just like the rest of the countries on the continent are still under the firm grips of their colonial powers - mostly being controlled and manipulated through such proxy institutions as IMF & WB. The only time an African politician echoes the sentiments of his people is during elections, but notice how right afterwards, they turn their attention to fulfilling the austerity programs of these proxy institutions instead of the hopes and aspirations of the citizenry.

 For a brief period in the continent contemporary history, the only country which managed to resist the claws of these colonial powers for a while and somehow managed to champion its own development path was Libya. However, through a series of carefully orchestrated lies and deception of neocolonialists – (Championed by Nicolas Sarkozy of France, David Cameroun of UK, Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama of USA) - all hiding behind the banner of Human Right and Democracy - We all know the end story of Libya today. Indeed, the destruction of Libya destabilized and shook the continent to the core. It led to the reintroduction of slave trade and a booming human organ trade in Libya, not forgetting the countless number of Africans perishing in the Mediterranean Sea daily.

So for Mandela’s dream (our dream) of Africa Taking its Rightful Place among the Nations of the World to become a realityit is incumbent upon all Africans (citizens of the continent) to stand up and confront the ongoing covert & overt Destabilization/Destruction of the continent, while being vigilant of all the other subtle neocolonialist schemes hampering our developmental efforts, because I believe, the Place for African People is Africa - Not the Bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. 

As usual your comments, criticisms, questions and point(s) of correction etc. are welcome. Please kindly comment with positive suggestion(s) on how to develop our continent further, pushing the frontier beyond the current status-quo. Thanks.

What one gets in far too many Afro shops in Hamburg isn’t just bad customer service; it’s customer disservice at its most shameful display. I speak of course not of every shop in town, the African barbershops and salons, for example, are often a treat. But if you ask me to recommend an African food shop for you, my answer will not be worth your effort in asking; I will tell you to go to whichever one you can find.

That is not because all of them are the same in terms of price and quality, but because nearly each one of them lacks good customer service. When a shop manager or assistant isn't monitoring you as though you were up to no good, he or she is busy being everything but polite and helpful.

Nearly every trip seems like an exercise in bad experience. Take last month, for example, when I informed an assistant at a Nigerian shop in Barmbek of a bag of Basmati rice I had bought from his shop that turned out to be Basmati in name only; ''This is my first time hearing this, I will check,’’ he said. Needless to say, he did not check then or any time since. On a separate occasion at the same shop, I had to wait for the cashier to finish a phone conversation before he could check me out. Then we discovered he did not have enough change to give me, which meant I had to wait while he checked every compartment there was in the store. After roughly ten minutes of waiting, I received my change, and to the door, I went. As I made my way home, I reflected on what had just transpired; the phone call, the dawdling, the lack of acknowledgment for the time I spent waiting, and the fact that that was just business as usual.

Then there is this shop located about 130 meters from the Barmbek train station. I was happy when it opened at the beginning of this year; I thought if nothing else, the fear of losing customers would force the other shop to improve its service. But my first experience there was equally discouraging; the cashier, who appeared to be a Ghanaian, had somehow forgotten to give me my change. When she finally did, her manner was more befitting of someone that was giving her money to a pestering beggar than a cashier handing change to a duly owed customer. change

What is so troubling about my experiences and those of friends isn’t the cavalier attitude or the condescension. Instead, it is the passing of bad human behavior as ‘good old African informality.’ The imbecility of it is that this behavior is prevalent in a place where it shouldn’t be, and is kept up even in this period of economic uncertainty. Black Africans might be just a fraction of Hamburg’s total population, but we represent nine out of the ten customers in any Afro shop at any given time. For those of us who have dedicated our lives to supporting our communities and restoring dignity to Black Africans, nothing is more demoralizing and bewildering than the actions of managers and assistants in Afro shops.

Unfortunately, this deplorable and economically irrational behavior is very familiar. Growing up in a small town in Ghana’s Volta Region, three kinds of people mostly constituted the middle class: government workers, bus or truck owners, and kiosk owners. Each neighborhood had about one or two sizable kiosks that one would frequent for items like tea bread, sugar, milk, and school supplies. The lack of competition in most neighborhoods made it easy for the shopkeepers to take most of their customers for granted. They would rather be obsequious to the bank employees and government workers who only occasionally bought from their shops than show even a modicum of appreciation for the rest of that went to them daily. But it didn’t end with the shopkeepers; in Ghana, there is hardly an area of life, including the church, where one can expect to be treated with the same level of respect and dignity accorded those perceived as rich or Whites from abroad.

Most of the shopkeepers of my childhood no longer run the neighborhoods; the wooden structures that once sheltered their egos have been washed aside by the less merciful tides of globalization and change. The current Coronavirus pandemic is also a tide of globalization, arguably the most brutal one we've seen in our lifetime. Will your local African food shops be able to withstand it? What will happen if the amazon of African foods and other basic supplies pops up suddenly on the internet; will you stay inside and order or will you continue to take the bus or train, with or without a mask, to an Afro shop in the name of solidarity? Who will benefit from that; you or the shopkeeper that treats you worse than those with whom you supposedly have less in common?

I will understand your choice, either way.

President Magufuli says tests were found to be faulty after goat, sheep and pawpaw samples test positive for COVID-19.

Tanzania's President John Magufuli has dismissed imported coronavirus testing kits as faulty, saying they returned positive results on samples taken from a goat and a pawpaw. Magufuli made the remarks during an event in Chato in northwestern Tanzania on Sunday. He said there were "technical errors" with the tests.

wikipedia COVID 19 testing

The president, whose government has already drawn criticism for being secretive about the coronavirus outbreak and has previously asked Tanzanians to pray the coronavirus away, said he had instructed Tanzanian security forces to check the quality of the kits.

They had randomly obtained several non-human samples, including from a pawpaw, a goat and a sheep, but had assigned them human names and ages.

These samples were then submitted to Tanzania's laboratory to test for the coronavirus, with the lab technicians left deliberately unaware of their origins.

Samples from the pawpaw and the goat tested positive for COVID-19, the president said, adding this meant it was likely that some people were being tested positive when, in fact, they were not infected by the coronavirus.

"There is something happening. I said before we should not accept that every aid is meant to be good for this nation," Magufuli said, adding the kits should be investigated. 

On Saturday, Magufuli announced that he had placed an order for a herbal treatment for the coronavirus touted by the president of Madagascar.

"I have already written to Madagascar's president and we will soon dispatch a plane to fetch the medicine so that Tanzania can also benefit from it," he said.

The herbal remedy, called "Covid Organics" and prepared by the Malagasy Institute for Applied Research, is made out of Artemisia, a plant cultivated on the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar.

Despite a lack of scientific evidence, President Andry Rajoelina of Madagascar claimed that the remedy has already cured some Madagascans of COVID-19. Children returning to school have been required to take it.

Those affected could stay until June 30, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has restricted the mobility of holders of the Schengen Visa, which allows tourists and business travelers to stay in the Schengen area for up to 90 days. However, the numerous national
lockdowns and flight cancelations will inevitably cause many to remain in the Schengen area after their visas had expired.

To prevent that, the German Ministry of Interior has extended the residence permit of all Schengen visa holders who entered the country on March 17, 2020, or later. The temporary protection also implies that those affected may have a  possible means to work until June 30 ("Verordnung zur vorübergehenden Befreiung von Inhabern ablaufender Schengen-Visa vom Erfordernis eines Aufenthaltstitels auf Grund der COVID-19-Pandemie"). However, we do advise holders of the Schengen Visa to contact the Ministy of Interior for further information.

This prevents them from falling into illegal status and allows them to access vital services that are inaccessible to those without legal status.

The extension is from April 16 to June 30, 2020.

Rwandan President -Paul Kagame

Afro News

Does Africa have the need to continuously borrow Money for her today’s survival while creating debt-burden the next generations? The simplest answer that can be given is “it depends”, -but on what?

In conventional economic theories, we are told that when a government prints money, it exposes itself to inflation because there will be more money in the system to chase fewer goods, causing the money to lose its value.
However, if we can think beyond these theories, and accept the fact that these theories were developed by humans; individuals with brain capacities same as ours and we also have the capacity to device alternative models to solve our own problems, then, we can start to ask questions like: How can there be fewer goods in the system if the money printed is used as an incentive for innovation and production rather than serving as an object for demanding goods and services?; what is the central duty of a sovereign government when it prints paper and calls it money? What are the fundamental differences between monies printed into an economy and those borrowed into the same economy?

Questions of these kinds can help us probe deeper to understand the system that controls us better.

To a very large extent, when a government borrows money, it shows the lack of ability and understanding of that government to an effective management of the economy. Unfortunately, the idea of going to another sovereign country to borrow paper (fiat money) instead of using our sovereign status to print money and manage this printed money to support our developmental projects and programs has become the normal and easy way for almost all African countries since attaining independence status.
Why should someone print paper and hand it over to you as money and let you pay back not with the same paper (paper as used here means what one has the right to print, in this case, if America prints dollar for us to support our economy, we should be able to print our own currencies to pay back after our economy has become stronger and not to pay back with dollar which we do not have the right to print and as such, it becomes a value for us), instead, we are required to pay back these paper loans  in values, resources, and efforts? I know it is not as simple as I am putting it in this piece, but the truth it is that, it is also not as impossible as they make it looks to us.

Before going further, it is important to point out that in an extreme distressed circumstance, a country may borrow money in a 1 or 2 cases (this happened to continental Europe, wherein, after the Second World War when America has to print and loan out money to Europe under the Marshall Plan to help them recover from the total breakdown). However, it is so not normal for a sovereign nation to resort to borrowing of paper money as a way of life. In fact, no one has borrowed her way into freedom or development.

At this stage, I want to point out, first and foremost that every sovereign state, no matter how small it may be, has the right and authority to print and manage its own money.

Second, I want to state categorically that the act of printing money does NOT result in inflation (that concept is a hoax at least). Rather, it is the mode of management of the printed money that causes inflation or deflation.

For example, if the government of Ghana (inset here the name of any African country of your choice) realises that a region/state needs a road and it estimates the cost of constructing the road to be 50 Billion Ghana Cedis (inset here the currency of your selected African country). If the government goes on to print 50 Billion Ghana Cedis for the purpose of this project, and then calls on a Chinese or an European construction agency to construct this road on a condition that 20% of the capital cost is giving to the government or the political party in power as a kick-back, the following is what will happen:

1. The Chinese or the European company will demand that the payment is made in Chinese Yuan or European Euro. This means, the government of Ghana has to place the local currency it has printed on the international financial market to demand for Yuan or Euro. When this happens, there will be more Cedi (than it should be) on the market and if there are not equally more customers on the market demanding for Cedi, then this automatically reduce the value or relevance of Cedi, hence drastic or continuous exchange rate depreciation of the Cedi.

2. Once, the company pays the 20% of the capital cost to the government or party in power, it immunes itself of any system of control that is meant to regulate and manage the economy of the said African countries. In this case, the foreign construction company will construct a road with a quality far below what the money it has received should normally construct, it will under-pay local labour if it ever employs one, and it will invade taxes and all other statutory payments. The compositions of these negative actions will weaken the economic management regime of the said country.

Additionally, it is important to consider that the 20% (paid in kickback) which has gone in the hands of the ruling gangs as a mere paper because they have received that without working, or exchanging any value for it. The effect from this is no different from the damage the economy will suffer when a criminal sits in his or her room and print counterfeit and release them in the economy. Yet this money will be cheerful release in our economy through unproductive and abusive channels such as paying for sex of, and rent for ‘slay queens’ and ‘fuck boys’; sponsoring of political hooliganism to destroy lives and properties in our countries; and embarking on expensive holiday trips abroad and showing  offs at public gathering and events.

In the end of all the above scenarios, what will happen is that Ghana has used it sovereign status to print 50 billion in cash/paper but that 50 billion paper has not been properly managed to translate into /create actual wealth in equivalence of 50 billion. This, among many other negative economic consequences will result in inflation (more money in the system chasing fewer goods) because the focus of the money printed was to serve as object for demand rather than being an incentive to induce production and innovation. It will also result in exchange rate depreciation and damaging of the country’s economic sovereign worth because no one can trust a system managing by ineffective heads.

On the other hand, if the government prints 50 billion of the local currency for the purpose of constructing a road and this government ensures that the capacity of local construction companies are strengthened to execute the project, it will have no need to put such huge amount of the local currency on the global financial market for foreign exchange (because local companies are paid in local currency) to damage the exchange rate value of the local currency. Ethiopia has been able to developed strong local Construction, Banking, and Telecommunication system to champion the country’s development internally. Other African countries can learn from the Ethiopian system.

In the event that 50 Billion is printed to embark on road construction, all that the governments has to do to avoid inflation is to internally manage this printed money to ensure that:

  1. It is fairly and widely distributed
  2. It translates into multiples of actual values and wealth in the economy

Why is Fair and Widely Distribution of Printed Money Important?

First of all, every member of a society has some potential(s) or value in them which when is encouraged and tapped, will contribute to national development. However, this value cannot just be tapped unless regimes of rewards and recognition are instituted as a modality of exchange for these inherent values in the citizens.

After printing money, the government has a management duty to ensure that the money does not get concentrated in the hands of a few people; rather it must be wisely and widely distributed with an objective to use it as a bait to attract and uncover hidden potentials in citizens for national development.

How can this be done?

Whereas the main objectives of businesses owners will be to maximize profit, the government who has a duty to provide social good must at all times aim at maximizing quality and ensure that standards are strictly adhered to. When this is done, contractors are expected to spend the money received fairly on ‘all’ sectors of the economy to ensure widely and fairly distribution of the money.

For example, by insisting on quality and adherence to standards, the construction of a single road can lead to: increase demand for general logistics; available capital for trading and operations of the banking sector; higher employment and welfare for citizens; and capital returns for government to embark on other project generated through efficient and transparent tax system and many other benefits to the economy.

When the printed money is efficiently managed to inject the above benefits in the economy, the beneficiaries, will subsequently use and reuse the money/the benefits to create multiples of values (far higher than the original value of 50 billion) in the economy, thereby, promoting steady and long-term development of the country.

Will Printing of Money rather than Borrowing be an Easy thing to do by any African Country?

Certainly not, no single African country will find it easy to adopt this strategy; it even seems impossible because, lending to keeping Africa and her future in debt is a big business that helps those who want to keep Africans in an unending slavery use in controlling both the labour and human capital, and natural resources on the continent. By this any country/leader that makes such an attempt will face strong sabotage, sanction, and likely power instability from the controllers of the system.

Nonetheless, Africa will certainly win, when all or most African countries come together in unity and make this a continental policy. Without, doing this in unity, we must consider it that we are ready to bring our next generation into a new mode of slavery.

Paris: Secret documents leaked on the fiasco in Burkina Faso expose troubling information on the undercover activities of the American Multi-Billionaire Bill Gates in the small African nation and across the region. Intelicor veterans in Paris express unease as the Burkinabe government led by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thieba resigned  

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-46930537

A leading Intelicor veteran thinks that the reason why President Roch Marc Christian Kabore demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister is related to the matter of the proposed release of genetically modified (GMO) mosquitoes in Burkina Faso under the sponsorship of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The story began in January 2018, when Bill Gates pledged USD $45 million to the health initiative in Burkina Faso. Some felt that the funds were a decoy to cover bribery to top government officials for allowing the program to release the GMO mosquitoes in Burkina Faso. The GMO mosquitoes were programmed at Imperial College London under a grant from Bill Gates to sterilize natural mosquitoes and humans across the African continent over time

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/researchers-to-release-genetically-engineered-mosquitoes-in-africa-for-first-time/

The terrifying news of the secret project for Human Sterilization of Africans with GMO mosquitoes alarmed African leaders, who quickly came down hard on President Kabore forcing him to act. Similar teams are working in Mali and Uganda. The homing endonuclease gene (HEG) that sterilizes the female mosquitoes also could be passed through saliva to humans during bites and the human in turn could pass it on through sexual intercourse to another human, in a cascade that could have the entire Black Continent exterminated before anything could be done about it.  This is why 170 Global Groups called for Moratorium on the release of these new genetic extinction technology at the UN Convention

http://www.etcgroup.org/content/160-global-groups-call-moratorium-new-genetic-extinction-technology-un-convention

The GMO mosquitoes were moved into Burkina Faso from UK illegally under EU regulations

http://www.genewatch.org/uploads/f03c6d66a9b354535738483c1c3d49e4/GM_mosquitoes_in_Burkina_Faso_final.pdf

Ànd fresh evidence from trials in Cayman Islands, Panama and Brazil show that the Oxitec’s GM mosquitoes failed to reduce the female mosquitoes  population

https://gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/18275-new-evidence-of-failure-of-oxitec-s-gm-mosquito-trials

It goes to reinforce what critics have always said, that it is not about the mosquitoes but about making people sterile.

Investigations revealed that, of the $45 million dollars pledged by Bill Gates, $10 million dollars were earmarked for family planning

https://philanthropynewsdigest.org/news/gates-pledges-45-million-for-health-initiatives-in-burkina-faso

In the secret deal, the Minister of Health of Burkina Faso Professor Nicolas Meda  appointed the wife of the Prime Minister Anne Thieba as ambassador for family planning

https://www.advancefamilyplanning.org/burkina-faso-appoints-her-excellency-anne-thieba-ambassador-family-planning

And so she has authority over the funds. However, some say that “it is to keep it within the family”, that raised the smoking gun prompting in-depth investigation by President Kabore and could have exposed the comprising evidence against Prime Minister Thieba. The Intelicor veteran said “in all cases, we see a pattern, that Bill Gates uses monetary bribes disguised as philanthropic donations to compromise African leaders, to take actions with devastating consequences for their nations”.  

The HIDDEN AGENDA is usually not fully understood by the African leaders the source continues. According to a business consultant who has been involved in tracking Bill Gates’ investments in biotechnology, the main focus for Bill Gates is to have the controlling shares in the biotechnology companies for food production sold in Africa as GMO crops. With partners such as Monsanto (now under the German company Bayer with a troubled Nazi past

https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/bayer-monsanto-merger-cant-erase-nazi-chemists-past/

Bill Gates will control the food security and polity of Africa and could at any moment exterminate the Black Africans in the Continent as his partners did in Vietnam and Auschwitz with agent Orange and Chlorine Gas. Bill Gates used pseudo-names Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabab (formaerly unknown local Islamic groups with tens of followers) in Kenya to bring Black Africa’s fastest growing populations to a standstill. Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and ISIS are all funded by Bill Gates and were trained by Blackwater

http://www.pravdareport.com/business/companies/14-10-2010/115363-machines_of_war_blackwater_monsanto_billgates-0/

The Western governments are culprits in the crime, until the coming of Donald Trump the U.S. was the main sponsor in partnership with Bill Gates! Bill Gates owns the majority shares in Monsanto/Bayer

http://naturalsociety.com/big-owner-monsanto-shares-bill-gates-depopulation-agenda-exposed/

For example, Bill Gates’ acquisition of Ginkgo a $1 billion USD biotech company in Boston MA that prints DNA for GMO crops https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/21/bill-gates-backed-start-up-ginkgo-bioworks-prints-synthetic-dna.html will give him control over the food security in Africa, should the continent go GMO. Africans would not out of free-will give up their natural crops for GMOs except if they are forced to do so. An agronomist Anaïs Étienne says Africans would be left without choice because all the fields are being cleared by Boko Harma fighters and their farmers driven out to displaced people camps and would be given GMO crops to plant during rehabilitation through NGOs and UN organisations supported by the Gates Foundations.

Ismail Kadir, a real estate agent in Maiduguri, Nigeria says “all my foreign clients operating NGOs are taking rents for 5 to 10 years and I ask them what would they be doing here in ten years, if they do not think that the insurgency would last that long”. Bill Gates is operating a special type of business philanthropy, whereby the aim is to create the problem of insurgency and offer the solution with GMO crops which will guarantee him as the main supplier of seeds and hence food, then grow it into a business worth $1 trillion USD by 2030

https://howwemadeitinafrica.com/seizing-africas-rapidly-growing-food-market-worth-1tn-2030/59729/

On the other hand, Claudia McAnthony a reproductive health expert on sabbatical in an elite laboratory in Paris says “making Africans sterile would mean their women would go for invitro-fertilization (IVF) to seek for help to conceive, but their ovarian eggs would be poached for embryonic stem cell research as young Africans are killed for experiments in European and American laboratories of companies seeking to clone human organs for sale, a business worth over $30 trillion USD by 2030”.

Nigeria and Kenya supply most of the ovarian eggs used in embryonic stem cell research in Europe and America, only to leave the donors die slowing in Africa from kidney failure, liver failure, cancers and infections. It is convenient for Bill Gates to hire for the crimes against humanity, people posing as Islamists paid in US dollars through proxies and blame it on Islamic fundamentalists. Bill Gates shows up frequently for photo-ops on Polio with African leaders and leaves donations to feed the corrupt practices in the continent. The Polio program has been a very big cover for Bill Gates as the good man from America, while he uses it to facilitate clandestine operations including administering sterilizing agents

https://www.lifesitenews.com/new/unicef-nigeria-polio-vaccine-contaminated-withsterilizing-agents-scientis

And using the vehicles marked as vaccination team to convey Boko Haram fighters beyond military checkpoints. The process began since 2009 in the food growing region of Northeast Nigeria.

The mercenaries hired first from Liberia

https://www.counterpunch.org/2009/04/06/blackwater-in-liberia/

Sierra-Leone, and later from Libya, Chad, Niger, by Blackwater/Academie/Xe owned by Bill Gates and Monsanto/Bayer

https://www.voltairenet.org/article179691.html

Fighters are paired $10,000 a month as Boko Haram fighters in Nigeria (https://www.voanews.com/a/a-13-2009-03-06-voa39-68678567/408730.html ) by Bill Gates. The Boko Haram attacks will intensify as the elections in Nigeria draws near as it is now clear Bill Gates is supporting the opposition leader Atiku Abubakar who he could convince to allow GMO crops in Nigeria. In a recent visit to the U.S facilitated by Bill Gates, at a time there is a government shutdown it is clear Atiku Abubakar was not welcome anywhere within the US government and US Congress, but for a publicity stunt, and an opportunity to seal up the deal with Bill Gates in person.  Atiku Abubakar has been barred from the U.S. pending US Congressional investigation on corrupt practices by him and his family in the United States from Nigeria

https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/download/report-psi-staff-report-keeping-foreign-corruption-out-of-the-united-states-four-case-histories

Many experts expect Bill Gates to sponsor dramatic Boko Haram attacks aimed at embarrassing the government of President Buhari of Nigeria and to help the opposition

https://www.thenigerianvoice.com/news/274825/us-warns-of-plan-by-boko-haram-to-carry-out-terrorist-attack.html

Some think that Bill Gates using his Boko Haram mercenaries have planned attacks with aim of assassinations of top officials to demonstrate to Nigerians that their government is weak on security. The government of Burkina Faso has been in partnership with the US government under the Obama administration and Bill Gates, and provided its territory for U.S. military bases for training of the top mercenaries for Boko Haram to fight in Nigeria.

Some have suggested that, Bill Gates and George Soros financed the coup in Burkina Faso in 2015 to maintain these military bases for sponsorship of the insurgency in Nigeria and for destabilization of the entire West African region

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2015/09/21/did-africom-engineer-military-coup-in-burkina-faso.html

The Bill Gates sponsored Jihadists have now turned against the Burkinabe government as relations soured because of pressure from African leaders  (https://m.news24.com/Africa/News/13-dead-in-burkina-faso-after-suspected-jihadist-attack-20190102 ). There is growing dissatisfaction among African leaders with actions of Bill Gates on the African Continent. Even more distressful is the connivance with leaders of Western Countries like France, Germany and Britain, who have collaborated in the destabilization of Africa.

The growing popularity of China is a direct reflection of the feeling of unease in African capitals that the entire Western countries have gone rouge. According to Laurent Kosic, a political analyst in Paris, who has lived for over a decade in Africa, said “ this is typical of Africa, they would rather avoid you than pick a fight, but what they need now is a total ban of genetically modified organisms across the continent”. “The effort by Bill Gates to sterilize the entire black people of Africa with GMO foods and GMO mosquitoes all fits well with UNFPA targets to depopulate the continent and provide a means for perpetual colonialism” – he added.

The watch is on as President Kabore names Christophe Dabire as the new prime minister, but the last is yet to be heard from the events unravelling in Burkina Faso.

CEO of Livenat SAS, Dr. France Aimée Gaïl, in an interview on Radio TopAfric’s health show, encouraged the use of natural-based cosmetic products because it has proven to be a much healthier option.

Dr. France Aimée Gaïl graduated from the University of Orléans with a PH.D. in Organic Chemistry and has expertise in the Pharmaceutical field as well as product development. Her experience as a chemist has driven her to develop healthy products for all hair types.

The company’s brand, DEVANCE COSMETIQUES based in France, has since 2013 produced the best natural based cosmetic products, she says.

DEVANCE COSMETIQUES has products for all hair types, namely; shampoos, conditioners, hair oil, to mention a few.

 In response to a question from a listener, Dr. France Aimée reiterated that people experiencing alopecia, a common autoimmune disorder that often results in unpredictable hair loss, can use DEVANCE COSMESTIQUES natural based oil to restore hair mostly if the condition is not genetically transmitted.

WHAT ARE NATURAL BASED COSMETICS?

Natural based cosmetics are cosmetics made from raw materials sourced from nature, such as plants and minerals, and a renewable natural source.

A new discovery could explain why obese people are more likely to develop cancer, scientists say. A type of cell the body uses to destroy cancerous tissue gets clogged by fat and stops working, the team, from Trinity College Dublin, found.

Obesity is the biggest preventable cause of cancer in the UK after smoking, Cancer Research UK says.  And more than one in 20 cancer cases - about 22,800 cases each year in the UK - are caused by excess body weight.  Experts already suspected fat sent signals to the body that could both damage cells, leading to cancer, and increase the number of them.

Now, the Trinity scientists have been able to show, in Nature Immunology journal, how the body's cancer-fighting cells get clogged by fat. And they hope to be able to find drug treatments that could restore these "natural killer" cells' fighting abilities.

'Lose some weight'

Prof Lydia Lynch said: "A compound that can block the fat uptake by natural killer cells might help.  "We tried it in the lab and found it allowed them to kill again.

"But arguably a better way would be to lose some weight - because that is healthier for you anyway." Dr Leo Carlin, from the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, said: "Although we know that obesity increases the risk of 13 different types of cancer, we still don't fully understand the mechanisms underlying the link.

"This study reveals how fat molecules prevent immune cells from properly positioning their tumour-killing machinery, and provides new avenues to investigate treatments. "A lot of research focuses on how tumours grow in order to find metabolic targets to stop them, so this is a reminder that we should consider the metabolism of immune cells too."

Four years ago a publication was made Ghanaians living in Hamburg, Germany demanding answers from authorities about the rampant death of their countrymen. Years have passed but the toll of such deaths has neither ceased nor decreased. It is clear that death is inevitable but the frequency and circumstance is what is worrying.

It is upon this back drop that a discussion on that topic was held on the health show hosted by Effya on TopAfric radio and was covered by the NDR Das. This could be a huge step to drawing the attention of the right authorities to come to the aid of the Ghanaian community.

Within the public sphere the theory such as doctors intentionally killing their victims is purported to be one of the causes of such deaths.

During the radio discussion the following factors were enumerated to be possibly contributing to such premature death; Irresponsible self medication, unhealthy and sedentary life styles, physical inactivity, under utilisation of the health care system, religious and cultural beliefs and practices, ignorance and lack of information, double and quadruple jobs to cater for families and acquisitions of properties back home, genetics, environment etc. 

Recommendations to counteracting the problem will be to negate the above enumerated possible causes.

 As public Health scientists we see the issue as public health emergency which threatens the human security within the Ghanaian community in Hamburg. An anecdotal evidence of the issue at stake could be true but not enough deal with the problem.

To a achieve the desired result, a holistic approach is needed hence an urgent need for scientific research that encompasses needs assessments , data collection, analysis  and findings to draw and implement a comprehensive public health intervention which is participatory and culturally tailored to mitigate the problem.

The negative impacts of the continuous premature death of Ghanaians cannot be overemphasised. It affects the families and society at large as well as the economy here in Germany and Ghana. For this reason we would like to call on stakeholders to support the worthy course by funding such project. We are looking up to the Ghana Embassy, German Health ministry and other such interested institutions to heed to this call so as to ensure that such premature deaths would be a thing of the past through the implementation of public health interventions.

There is hardly anything that contributes to a better mood or offers more fun than one of the most beautiful pastimes in the world. But the importance of a healthy and regular sex life really is often underestimated.

Here are eight good reasons why you should not neglect your sex life. Because this is what happens to your body when you stop having sex:
Why a healthy sex life not only ensures a good mood

1. You get sick more often

If you don’t have sex for a long time, your immune system becomes significantly weaker. Germs then have an easier job of spreading in your body and you can catch a cold or get the flu more easily. So, just by having more sex, you can help keep your herbal remedy teas in the closet!

2. Your stress levels increase

Sex is a great way to reduce your stress levels. Regular sex reduces the amount of stress hormones and makes you feel more relaxed in everyday life. Without this important balance, you could become a ticking time bomb!

3. It’s harder for you to get aroused

It’s hard to believe, but true: If you don’t regularly “practice,” it’s difficult for a lot of people to become aroused. Men can experience problems having erections and it can be harder for women to have an orgasm. So, you have to stay on top of things to make sure the “switch” always remains on.

4. Your dreams change
Some people suddenly notice that they have strange dreams when their sex life is suffering. It can mean that you unexpectedly start dreaming about sex or have orgasms in your sleep.

5. Over time you lose your desire to have sex

If your body notices that you’re having a prolonged dry spell in the sexual sense, the production of sex hormones reduces. You feel less like having sex if you have been abstinent for a while. In addition, your libido will eventually feel different. And this is all due to the fact that your sex hormones are slowly vanishing.

6. You’ll feel more distance between your partner and yourself

When a couple in a relationship only rarely sleep together, their interpersonal distance becomes greater. You may start to have feelings of uncertainty related to your partner and other people will seem more attractive to you.

7. It lowers your feeling of self-worth

It is not surprising that a person’s self-worth is harmed, if that individual does not regularly feel desired. But a lack of sex has been proven to affect a person’s well-being, leading to sadness or depression when sex is absent from their lives. Studies have shown that having sex regularly helps fight depression. It can sometimes even work as well as antidepressants.

8. Your risk of cancer increases

For men, the risk of prostate cancer increases when they don’t have sex for a longer period of time. So it’s not a bad idea for men to “flush out” the pipes. Because then the risk is significantly reduced.

Well, if all this isn’t motivation enough, then I don’t know what is! For all these reasons, it would be almost irresponsible not to make love more regularly, don’t you think?!

This article was first published in 2014! 
The rate at which Ghanaians are dying prematurely in Hamburg -Germany is alarming and it is time authorities begin to ask questions and provide answers. Life expectancy has improved tremendously in Germany over the years.

In 2012 the life expectancy in Germany increased to about 81.00 years. That for women was at 83.30 years and for men 78.60 years. If statistics available to TopAfric is correct, the Ghana community buried over 30 people 2014, burried 46 people in 2016. As at Nov 2018, more than 30 Ghanaians have been burried. The average age was just around 45 years.                                                                   

The irony is that Ghanaians are dying more than all other Black -/Africans in Hamburg put together. Yes the wages of life is death, but when Ghanaians find themselves in a country with better health infrastructures then they should live longer.

Ghanaians in Hamburg are definitely doing something wrong because even in Ghana, where the rate of avoidable death (drinking and driving, bad roads, no road signs, poor medication, bribery at hospitals or unavailability of medical care) is high the folks are living longer.

Life expectancy in Ghana as at 2012 is about 61 years, so why this high rate of death in Germany.Why the community awaits the results from the authorities to guide the people as to what is wrong and what can be done better. The following unscientific assumptions are making the air waves.

There is this weird speculation that the “Alster River” dislikes this black clothing’s of Ghanaians, the people are therefore disregarding the gods of the river. “The gods are not to blame”.

Ghanaians in Hamburg love burials and funerals above everything; they are seen every week organizing funerals of relatives that have passed away far in Ghana. First the “One Week” and then the “Funerals”.

What you love most is what shall kill you!
There are times the cemetery worker asked if a prominent person or a star is dead. One jokingly said this is a confirmation of the high rate of unemployment amongst the Ghana community.

It would be in the interest of the community to discourage all imported funerals and mobilize the people only when one of the inhabitants dies in Hamburg. The traumatic lifestyle; high divorce rate,  inability to cope with the structured German routine, the bureaucracy, the bad eating habits –eating heavy “fufu” at mid nights, disregard for good health, could be a contributing factor...

Husbands and wives building separate mansions through their menial job, to impress family members back home. Unfortunately 90% do not even sleep in these homes before the lucky ones join the colleagues at “Hamburg -Friedhof Ohlsdorf (Kapelle 10) “the biggest cemetery in the World.

One insanity is changing trains and busses on weekends from funerals and parties to another, sadly incorrectly dressed during the winter season. It is time the Ghana Union and opinion leaders stamp their authority, coordinate all social activities, ban one week funerals and imported funerals.

Whilst we all undertake weekly sporting activities, we encourage the Ghana Embassy in Berlin and the Ghana Union in Hamburg to seek from the German authorities the causes of these premature deaths and make public the findings, -names anonymous.

With all things being equal Ghanaians in Germany can live to be 81 years.

God Bless Ghana!

Obesity is a growing problem within the African/Black community in Germany and Europe at Large.
With foods such as Fufu, Rice, Yam, Plantains as the staple unit, it makes it easy for Africans to gain weight so easily.

Akoto Degross was an obese individual who lived in Hamburg, Germany for a while where he was attending University and it was during this period that he decided to make a drastic change in his obese life by loosing half his body weight.

He had tried numerous times to loose weight but not until he lost his mother did he buckle up and strictly jump into loosing weight and living a healthier lifestyle.

In the video below, he discusses different reasons why Africans in the diaspora are over weight. He explained what they are doing wrong and how they can change and live better and healthier lives.

He also stated that the obesity epidemic is primarily rampant among the African Women in the diaspora.

He is an author and certified weight loss expert and runs a program called fat2fitghana (http://fat2fitghana.com/) which helps alot of people loose weight and live a healthier life style.

He has also written 2 books on how to loose weight.

History, if told by third parties, loses its essence. No one can write about another person’s experience without leaving out some important details. This is why the authors decided to come together and share their journey.
In compiling the chapters that resulted in this book, the main goal was to figure out where we are from, who we are, where we are, and where we want to go.

In The History of Ghanaians in Germany, you have an A-Z encounter with the writers of the pages. A-Z in that, the book addresses everything from; politics to religion to education to social life amongst others. It must be noted that this book tells the story of a people with a shared experience from two countries. Both countries play a huge role in shaping the lives of Ghanaians. Desmond Beddy did a good job in finding Ghanaians from all walks of life, demographics and backgrounds to partake in the creation of this masterpiece.
Cee Nortey2

Some chapters leave you asking questions, others answer your questions, while others explain your dilemmas. The thought, detail and accuracy that was put into this book makes it a must-read for generations to come. Our hope for the book is that it gives you a better understanding of the journey of Ghanaians in Germany that it serves as a blueprint for Ghanaians thinking of coming to Germany and to those thinking of returning to Ghana.

Through The History of Ghanaians in Germany, our history which was full of missing pieces has finally been fitted together; thus we can clearly see the picture of our future.

Wenn Geschichte von Dritten erzählt wird, verliert sie nicht selten ihr Wesen. Das bedeutet nicht, dass Geschichte nicht von Dritten erzählt werden sollte. Jedoch ist unbestritten, dass niemand über die Erfahrungen einer anderen Person, Gruppe oder Ethnie schreiben kann, ohne einige wichtige Erfahrungen, Einblicke und Wertungen auszulassen.

Aus diesem Grund beschlossen die Autoren des Buches, zusammenzukommen, um ihre Reise gemeinsam anzutreten. Bei der Zusammenstellung der Kapitel, die zu diesem Buch führten, bestand das Hauptziel darin, herauszufinden, woher wir kommen, wer wir sind, wo wir uns befinden und wo wir sein möchten.

Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland ist nicht nur eine Begegnung diverser Autoren. Nein, sie ist, unter anderem, eine Begegnung mit Politik, Religion, Bildung und sozialem Leben. Das Buch erzählt die Geschichte einer migrantischen Gemeinde, an verschiedenen Orten in diesem Land. Sie beschreibt den Spagat, den die Migranten aus Ghana (und Afrika) zu vollführen haben: die Wirklichkeit in der Diaspora,  Erwartungen von Angehörigen, Gedanken über Zukunft und Politik in der Heimat. Herkunftsland und Wahlheimat spielen bedeutende Rollen im Lebensalltag vieler Ghanaer.

Der Wahlhamburger Desmond John Beddy und seine Co-Autoren haben Außerordentliches geleistet, um Ghanaer aus verschiedenen Communities, Ethnien und Hintergründen zu finden, die an dem Zustandekommen dieses einmaligen Projekt mitgewirkt haben.

Sie hinterfragen, geben Antworten, erläutern ihre und die Dilemmata anderer. Die Herangehensweise, der Blick für Details und Präzision, macht „Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland" so lesenswert. Ein Muss für kommende Generationen. Denn es vermittelt Ihnen ein besseres Verständnis für die Reise und Lebenswirklichkeit ihrer Eltern, Onkels und Tanten in Deutschland. Zugleich dient es Ghanaern, die nach Deutschland auswandern möchten und für diejenigen, die daran denken, nach Ghana zurückzukehren, als Blaupause.

Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland, unsere Geschichte, ein Sammelsurium von Puzzleteilen, wird in diesem Buch zu einem einheitlichen Bild zusammengefügt. Wir können nun unseren Weg und unsere Vorstellungen für unsere Zukunft nicht nur klar erkennen, sondern auch aktiv mitgestalten.

Liebe Freunde,

das Jahr 2020 verlief anders, als es sich viele von uns zu dessen Beginn wohl vorgestellt haben. Viele von uns haben sehr schwierige Zeiten erlebt und immense Rückschläge erfahren. Doch auch in diesen herausfordernden Zeiten hatten wir das Gefühl uns auf euch verlassen zu können. Gemeinsam haben wir angepackt und versucht, zumindest die schwersten Widrigkeiten für die Schwächsten zu beseitigen. Das war eine Erfahrung, die uns sicherlich enger hat zusammen rücken lassen. Und der Gewissheit dieses Rückhaltes sollten wir das Jahr ausklingen lassen! Lasst uns versuchen dankbar zu sein für die Dinge, die gut gelaufen sind, denn dieses Jahr wurde deutlich, dass nichts selbstverständlich ist. Lasst uns in diesen Tagen der Kraft des Zusammenhaltes gedenken. Und lasst uns unsere Lieben, ob nah oder fern, wissen, dass wir an Sie denken!

Das gesamte TopAfric e.V. Team wünscht euch frohe, besinnliche und erholsame Feiertage und ein gesundes, erfolgreiches neues Jahr!

Obwohl -wie der Titel des Buches bereits vorwegnimmt- die „Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland" von in diesem Land lebenden Ghanaern handelt, erzählt es dennoch die Geschichte des afrikanischen Lebens in der Diaspora, der deutschen Wahlheimat. Denn unsere Erfahrungen in unserer zweiten Heimat ähneln sich, unterscheiden sich nur in Nuancen.

Das Buch des Herausgebers und Wahlhamburgers Desmond John Beddy ist ein Zeugnis der ghanaischen Präsenz in der Bundesrepublik und dokumentiert hervorragend ihre Geschichte seit der Unabhängigkeit des Landes (1957). Die Ursachen und Motivation für die Migration nach Deutschland, die Migranten selbst und der Einfluss der Mehrheitsgesellschaft auf sie. Die Geschichte wird im Wesentlichen aus Hamburg erzählt -damals wie heute pulsierendes Epizentrum und inoffizielle Hauptstadt der Ghanaer in Deutschland.

In dem Buch werden Fragen des afrikanischen Lebens in der Diaspora behandelt - die rosigen, teils überzogenen und naiven Erwartungen, die harte Wirklichkeit, schmerzhafte und mühselige Anpassung, das Beherrschen der Sprache, Erfolge, Misserfolge und Enttäuschungen usw.

Das Buch wird durch Gastbeiträge bereichert; von Autoren die ihre Geschichte und Sichtweisen zum Thema einbringen. Diese reichen von Ghanaern der ersten Einwanderergeneration die über den Beginn ihres Aufenthaltes im Land, Erfahrungen im Laufe der Jahre schreiben und reflektieren, bis zu der zweiten und dritten Einwanderergenerationen. Diese fügen ihre Erlebnisse hinzu, ganz zu schweigen von dem Input von Pfarrern, und Deutschen, die bestens mit den Communities vernetzt sind.

Die „Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland“ ist eine kühne Antwort auf einen Mangel an qualitativ hochwertigen Beiträgen über die ghanaische (afrikanische) Gemeinschaft in diesem Land, die auf  Erfahrungen der Autoren beruhen. Der simple Stil, in dem das Buch geschrieben ist, das sowohl in Englisch als auch in Deutsch erhältlich ist, macht es sehr lesbar.

Das Buch ist schwer zu klassifizieren. Es ist Politik, Wirtschaft, Geschichte, Soziologie, Beratung und mehr - alles in einem. Für mich wäre ein passenderer Titel für das Buch einfach „Ghanaer in Deutschland“ oder „Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland“ gewesen, da es sich nicht nur mit der Vergangenheit befasst, sondern auch mit den gegenwärtigen Bedingungen kritisch auseinandersetzt und einen Leitfaden für den zukünftigen Weg bietet.

Leser werden die „Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland“ als ein sehr aufregendes Buch schätzen.

Besonders (jungen) Afrikanern wird das Buch als Orientierungshilfe dienen, da es ihnen die Erfahrungen derer vor ihnen berichtet. Wie Desmond John selbst sagt: „Nur wenn wir unsere Vergangenheit kennen und über unsere Gegenwart nachdenken, können wir uns unsere Zukunft vorstellen und gestalten.“

Deutsche mit und ohne Migrationshintergrund sowie andere Migrantengruppen werden es auch gerne lesen, um einen seltenen aber tiefen Einblick in die Realität des afrikanischen Lebens in Europa zu erhalten.

Darüber hinaus werden Forscher, die sich insbesondere mit der afrikanischen Diaspora und den transnationalen Gesellschaften im Allgemeinen beschäftigen, in der “Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland“ auf eine Fülle von Informationen stoßen.

Und wie Ghanas Botschafterin in Deutschland Gina Ama Blay in ihrem wunderschön geschriebenen Vorwort zu dem Buch feststellt, wäre die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland für Diplomaten des Landes hilfreich, wenn sie sich mit ihren Bürgern hier befassen. Auch wäre es nützlich für deutsche Behörden, um die ghanaische Gemeinschaft besser zu verstehen. Die Realität der Verhältnisse in den verschiedensten afrikanischen Communities lassen sich nicht aus Statistiken erschließen.

Das Buch ist eine Liebesarbeit Desmond John Beddy's für seine Gemeinde und sein Land. Die Anstrengungen, die die Autoren um ihn in die 332-seitige Arbeit gesteckt haben, sowie die Tiefe und Qualität des Inhalts zeigen die leidenschaftliche Beschäftigung der Autoren mit den Herausforderungen, vor denen Ghana und die ghanaische Gemeinde in Deutschland stehen.

Es ist wichtig, dass wir unsere Geschichte selbst erzählen. Zu hoffen bleibt, dass dieses wegweisende Buch Mitglieder anderer afrikanischer Gemeinschaften dazu inspirieren, über ihre Erfahrungen in Deutschland zu schreiben.

Holen Sie sich Ihr Exemplar dieses Buches. Sie werden es nicht bereuen!

Why can't our entrepreneurs compete with the competition from Asia? What about the future of our second and third generation of immigrants in Germany? How can we Ghanaian immigrants contribute to the socio-economic development of our homeland? These and similar questions concern not only the Ghanaian community in Germany. No, they concern many different migrants of African descent. We may differ in our diversity, speak different languages ​​and dialects, live different customs and beliefs. And yet one thing unites us: Germany has become our home.

The problems and challenges we face are not identical, but very similar. The questions of the Ghanaians are also the questions of the Senegalese, Nigerians and Cameroonians. The book "The History of Ghanaians in Germany" examines these questions and looks for answers and solutions. It is a milestone in the history of migration of Africans in Germany. Their story, so to speak. A group of 25 authors led by Desmond John Beddy (Hamburg is his adopted home), founder of TopAfric e.V. and initiator of the African Youth Education Awards (AYEA), impressively describe the situation in the communities. The book shows the perspective of Africans. Their self-image and perception of the environment in a country and society that is still partly foreign to them. In the same breath, it also describes the encounter between different cultures. The book represents a milestone because it is the first of its kind. There is no second. It combines the history, snapshots and prospects of the Ghanaians in Germany. The efforts they make to integrate into the German majority society. Their scepticism as to whether they will ever succeed, but also their irrepressible optimism to be able to master it.

Warum können unsere Unternehmer nicht mit dem Wettbewerb aus Asien konkurrieren? Wie steht es um die Zukunft unserer zweiten und dritten Einwanderergeneration in Deutschland? Wie können wir ghanaische Einwanderer zur sozioökonomischen Entwicklung unserer Heimat beitragen? Diese und ähnliche Fragen beschäftigen nicht nur die ghanaische Gemeinde in Deutschland. Nein, sie beschäftigen viele verschiedene Migranten afrikanischer Herkunft. Wir mögen uns in unserer Vielfalt unterscheiden, sprechen verschiedene Sprachen und Dialekte, leben unterschiedliche Bräuche und Glauben. Und dennoch verbindet uns eines: Deutschland ist unsere Heimat geworden.

Die Probleme und Herausforderungen denen wir uns gegenüber konfrontiert sehen sind zwar nicht identisch, jedoch sehr ähnlich. Die Fragen der Ghanaer sind auch gleichzeitig die Fragen der Senegalesen, Nigerianer und Kameruner. Das Buch "Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland" geht diesen Fragen nach und sucht nach Antworten und Lösungen. Es ist ein Meilenstein in der Migrationsgeschichte der Afrikaner in Deutschland.

Eine Gruppe von 25 Autoren um den Wahlhamburger Desmond John Beddy, Gründer von Topafric e.V. und Initiator der African Youth Education Awards (AYEA), schildern eindrucksvoll die Situation in den Communities. Das Buch zeigt die Perspektive der Afrikaner. Ihr Selbstverständnis und Wahrnehmung ihrer Umwelt in einem für sie teilweise immer noch fremden Land und Gesellschaft. Im selben Atemzug beschreibt es auch die Begegnung verschiedener Kulturen. Das Buch stellt einen Meilenstein deswegen dar, weil es das Erste seiner Art ist. Es gibt kein zweites. Es vereint Geschichte, Momentaufnahme und Ausblick der Ghanaer in Deutschland. Die Anstrengungen die sie auf sich nehmen um sich in die deutsche Mehrheitsgesellschaft zu integrieren. Ihre Skepsis ob es je gelingen mag, aber auch ihren unbändigen Optimismus es meistern zu können.

Die Welt wurde in eine „neue Normalität“ eingeweiht, die kaum die Normalität der Ära darstellt, in der wir leben. Könnte dies ein Weckruf sein, um nicht nur die Welt zurückzusetzen und schließlich die Menschheit zu zwingen, langsamer zu werden und neu zu bewerten Leben und es leben?
