Ms. Akua Donkor, illiterate President of Ghana ?

Who is she?

Born in 1952 in Affigya Kwabre in Ashanti. Farmer, she has made a fortune in cocoa. Elected MP in the riding of Herman, she built schools and provides drinking water to villagers on equity. She is an independent candidate for the presidency of Ghana in 2012.
But she has a flaw compared two other candidates, that is to say, Nana Agyeman-Rawlings Konadu (63), the former first lady and wife of Ghana's former President Jerry John Rawlings, a graduate Institute of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana and the Institute for Policy Studies in Baltimore in the United States.
Is a candidate for the presidency of Ghana under the banner of National Democratic Congress (NDC) which she is vice-president since 2009.
While Samia Yaba Nkrumah Christina (51), daughter of the founder of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah Francis (1909-1972), graduated from the Institute of African and Oriental Studies, University of London. Is a candidate for the Presidency of the Republic under the banner of the Party of the Convention (CPP) founded by his father in 1956.
Ms. Akua Donkor can neither write, and do not even speak English, the official language of Ghana.

God's choice is there than the people of Ghana!

"Although not belong to any political party known in the country, I am hopeful. David I will be the policy of this nation in 2012 because I was chosen by God to save the country from the hands of both parties, NPP and the NDC, "said Ashanti in her mother tongue, the farmer (60 years) during his nomination in Kumasi, capital of Ashanti.
She also blames the leaders Ghanaian intellectuals:
"You have placed your trust in people who claim to have gone to school in major European universities and who can speak English, but these, you can see with me, failed miserably. Now try the illiterate I am and I will not disappoint you. "
         Her program is as simple as her speech. She promises to raise taxes on imports if elected in order to "allow people to import more goods."
She wants to establish a free zone at the port of Tema, a suburb of Accra "to attract more business."
As for revenues from the exploitation of natural resources such as gold, timber, manganese and bauxite, they should serve, she said, without going into details, "to ensure the education of youth and build health infrastructure. "
She does not forget the journalists, "I'll give every media in Ghana a new car so that journalists can travel in all regions and produce reports on the challenges the country faces."
To be understood by voters, she uses the services of a translator!

Pioneer of women leaders illiterate in post-colonial Africa: Elisabeth Domitien, Prime Minister of Bokassa.

A strong personality.

Born around 1925 in the Lobaye in Ubangi-Shari (Central). Despite his desire for instruction, she can not obtain satisfaction. For the daughters of Ubangi-Shari (Central Africa) of the time are only entitled to a basic literacy and learning sewing. She has never had the opportunity to master reading or writing or the French.
She learned just to calculate, allowing it later to get into the coffee plantations, trade in agricultural products and textiles.
Her strong personality allows her to combine several women around her Central and carve out a reputation for mobilizing.
         Militant of Movement for the evolution of Black Africa (MESAN) founded by Abbé Barthelemy Boganda (1910-1959), she is mobilizing crowds Sango (one of the major languages ​​of Central Africa) and helps develop a sense of national.
         She works with all political systems since the ephemeral Boganda to that of Jean-Bedel Bokassa, to that of David Dacko (1930-2003).

Just less educated than President Jean-Bedel Bokassa.

On January 2, 1975, she was named (despite his lack of education) Prime Minister by the President for Life Jean-Bedel Bokassa (1921-1996). It is then the first African woman to serve as head of government and the fourth in the world.
If his nomination passes almost unnoticed, because international opinion is rather interested in the escapades of Bokassa.
The appointment of an illiterate to an important position is considered a fad of the nth CAR president. But she works for the promotion of agriculture, trade and promotion of women CAR.
         When she dares to oppose the coronation of Emperor Bokassa first, she was deposed April 7, 1976 and replaced by Ange Félix Patassé (1937-2011).
         Considered (rightly or wrongly) by the public face of the CAR as Bokassa her cousin, she is imprisoned without trial since the fall of Bokassa in 1979.
In 2003, she was heard by the Commission "truth and reconciliation" of the "National Dialogue" organized by self-proclaimed President Francois Bozize, as well as the main protagonists in the history of the Central African Republic since independence.
Her only daughter, her husband, district chief of Mobaye, all his siblings had died, Elizabeth lived with three of his nephews to Bimbo, near Bangui, where she died April 26, 2005 at age 80.
