IN PERSON

The writer Ken Gwira with former AU Ambassador to the US, Karikana Chihombori-Quao.

My dad when he was alive would sometimes say in Fanti, one of the Ghanaian languages: “I am not saying that some people told me. I saw it with my own eyes.”

If you want to know what the former African Union  Ambassador, Arikana Chihombori-Quao says about colonialism in Africa, there’s plenty of that on the internet. And you may or may not come to a true conclusion about her.

But until you meet her and hear her say: “This was not a job. If it was, I would not have taken it. It is my calling.”, you don’t have the full scope of any situation.

She charged up a room full of people to be passionate not just to demand justice, but to work after it.

Do not allow the spirit of your nation to be taken away.

In my opinion, Madam Ambassador is warmhearted and kind.

As you go, do likewise.
