Ghana: Democracy at work

My heart goes out to the people of Ghana on the death of their president John Atta Mills. My congratulations go to John Dramani Mahama on his assumption of the high office and wish him all the best in running the country.

Malawi, or rather a certain section of the country’s political class need to take a lesson in democracy from our friends in the west. The country managed a smooth transition of power within hours of the death of their head of state. It was a simple act of following what the constitution clearly states without any pointless need for legal interpretations.

Of course the lesson is one for a whole lot of other countries too!
