Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Africa very high on Obama's Agenda


US Secretary of State to Visit Africa


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 24 Jul 2009
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
U.S. officials say Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Africa next week on a trip aimed at highlighting the Obama administration's commitment to making Africa a priority in U.S. foreign policy.

The State Department says Clinton will begin her seven-nation trip August 5, when she attends the U.S.-Sub Saharan Africa Trade and Economic Cooperation Forum in Nairobi, Kenya. The forum is designed to help increase trade between the U.S. and African countries.

During her visit to Kenya, she will also meet with the president of Somalia's transitional government, Sheikh Sharif Amed.

Clinton will also visit South Africa, Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Liberia and Cape Verde.

Clinton's visit takes place less than a month after President Barack Obama visited Ghana.

The State Department says this is the earliest in any administration that both the president and secretary of state have traveled to Africa.


Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
