Ghana / Central African Republic: illiterate women in power in Africa.

 Ms. Akua Donkor, First President of Ghana illiterate?

Born in 1952 in Affigya Kwabre in Ashanti. Farmer, has made a fortune in cocoa. Elected MP in the riding of Herman, she built schools and provides drinking water to villagers on equity. It is an independent candidate for the presidency of Ghana in 2012.
But it has a small defect from two other former candidates, that is to say, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, (63), the former first lady of Ghana and wife of former President John Jerry Rawlings graduated from the Institute of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana and the Institute for Policy Studies in Baltimore in the United States.
She was candidate for the presidency of Ghana under the banner of National Democratic Congress (NDC) which she is vice-president since 2009.
Samia Yaba Christina While Nkrumah (51), daughter of founding father of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah Francis (1909-1972), graduated from the Institute of African and Oriental Studies, University of London. She was candidate for the Presidency of the Republic under the banner of the Party of the Convention (CPC), 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 belonging to any political party known in the country, I am filled with hope. 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, NDC and N.P.P. , " Ashanti said in his mother tongue, the farmer of 60 years, during his nomination in Kumasi, the capital of Ashanti.
She also blames the intellectual leaders of Ghana:
"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, have failed miserably. Now try the illiterate that I am and I will not disappoint you. "
Her program is as simple as his speech. It promises to raise taxes on imports if elected to "allow people to import more goods."
She wants to establish a free zone in the port of Tema, a suburb of Accra "to attract more business."
         As for revenue 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 will give every media of 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, it uses the services of a translator!

Pioneer leaders illiterate 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) of the time are only entitled to a basic literacy and learning sewing. She has never had a chance to control either the reading or writing of French.
She learned to simply calculate, allowing it to start later in the coffee plantations, trade in agricultural products and textiles.
His strong personality allows him to combine several women around her Central and carve out a reputation for mobilizing.
         Militant of the Movement for the evolution of Black Africa (MESAN) of the Abbé Barthelemy Boganda (1910-1959), she mobilizes crowds Sango (one of the major languages ​​of Central Africa) and helps develop a sense of national .
She works with all political regimes 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 more interested in the escapades of Bokassa.
The appointment of an illiterate to such an important position is considered a fad of the President Central Nth. But it works for the promotion of agriculture, trade and promotion of women Central. When she dares to oppose the coronation of Emperor Bokassa first, it is removed from office April 7, 1976 and replaced by Ange Felix Patasse (1937-2011). Considered (rightly or wrongly) by the public as the face of Central cousin Bokassa, the person is detained 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 the self-proclaimed President Francois Bozize, as well as the main protagonists in the history of the Central African Republic since independence.
His only daughter, her husband, head of the canton of Mobaye, all his siblings had died, Elizabeth lived with Domitian three of his nephews to Bimbo, near Bangui, where she died April 26, 2005 at age 80.
