  1. Well done Kuapa Kokoo. But why stop at cocoa, I guess though that is a question for every soul in Ghana.

    It is obvious that corruption is far more widespread than with just cocoa. As a foreigner almost every day of my life here is spent trying to get back what I have been defrauded of. Talking to locals gives me the same story over and over again as to the abundant fraud, theft and cheating that goes on. It seems to be a way of life yet most people here will tell you that they are serious Christians. Interesting isn’t it?
