Instead, she summons the son from whom she has been long separated. At first he thinks she's old and tiresome. But as Ama's astonishing journey unfolds in her own words, his world changes forever, until he can never see it with the same eyes again.
Nor will those who read Ama's story. The long and complicated discussions which followed, with so many other interested parties, turned into a negotiating marathon lasting over three years and culminating in a signed agreement in Sun City in April Masire was especially mindful of the need to maintain a neutral stance between all the parties involved — not easy for any of those who worked tirelessly to bring the agreement to fruition.
This is a book which should be read by all those interested in the resolution of conflicts in general and in Africa in particular. Almost hidden within the depths of one of Africa's largest cities live the enigmatic Kayayo - thousands of young adolescent girls who have chosen to live in an exclusively female world devoid of men and boys. Through extensive interviews in often dangerous circumstances, Carol Larratt takes us on a journey where we experience first hand their tragedies and horrors. Human Mules is a story of human survival against almost inconceivable adversity.
Yet like all stories of survival it is ultimately uplifting as we too experience the joys and heartaches of these courageous young women. The global village has disintegrated.
The Atlantic Ocean has become an American sea. West Africa has become a desert of failed states and anarchy, dotted with mines and oil rigs, stockaded and armed by U. The Americans dispatch expeditions of geologists and mining engineers into the dangerous interior of the Dark Continent to search for untapped resources. One such expedition has gone missing. His career blocked and his marriage failing, he accepts an offer to proceed to Ghana on a one-man mission to find the missing experts.
He suspects that his supervising officer, Bud Power, is having an affair with this wife. His arrival in Africa is inauspicious: in a shack amongst the coconut palms he comes across two human skeletons. A boy guides him to a coastal village. He tells the chief that he has come to Ghana to search for his natural parents. The chief welcomes him and delegates fisherman Kofi Kom to accompany him to Kumase, the Asante capital, miles up-country.
In Kumase, Crash goes to the stadium at dead of night to await the arrival of the three Thunderbirds, each carrying an armoured vehicle that will take the rescue party to the Fort. As the Thunderbirds touch down, they are blown up. Crash survives and is arrested.
He is put on trial and convicted but Anokye intervenes to save him from execution. As part of his sentence, Crash travels the country as a movie about the abortive invasion is screened in one village after another. He is impressed by what he perceives as a unique social experiment, led by Anokye, an attempt to build a decent, viable society in an economy barely above subsistence level.
After a year, Crash has completed his sentence and is permitted to return to the U. Anokye, now retired, accompanies him to the coastal village at which Crash arrived. There Anokye reveals to him that they are brothers and that the skeletons Crash found on his arrival are those of their parents. As soon as he rings his doorbell, Millicent phones the Marines and Crash is arrested.
He is charged with treason, tried and subsequently executed. Bud abandons Millicent. She refuses to talk. When the authorities start looking for him, he is already on his way to Africa, where he hopes to find his Uncle Anokye. To this day it has not been rebuilt. Later that same year, using seaborne artillery, the British flattened ten coastal towns and villages — including Axim, Takoradi and Sekondi. This novel, first published soon after the th anniversary of the sack of Kumase, tells his story.
