Ghana elections are on again!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7775081.stm

It seems as if elections nowadays are like pre-school competitions; everyone is a winner, even if they don't actually win.

Fact is, democracy, is the real winner in Ghana. They have come a long way since colonial rule and independence in 1957--thanks to JJ Rawlings and his setting the country, on the right path to democracy and peaceful exchange.

Too often, and this is the main case, leadership in Africa--like Mugabe in Zimbabwe--tend not to want to let go.

Ghana is a beacon of hope for a beleaguered continent, rife with political corruptions with economic failures!

Let them have a run off. Let them continue to vote until someone wins. This is happy to see...but, someone has to win!
