Africa responds to Obama’s “tough love” message

On Saturday, President Obama addressed a crowd in Ghana, where he spoke candidly about the African continent’s state of affairs.

Obama’s message was described as a kind of “tough love,” encouraging democracy and at the same time warning African nations they need to take care of themselves.

Yaw Nyarko, a professor of economics and director of Africa House at New York University, joins Martin Savidge to discuss why the president chose Ghana and what is at stake for the U.S. in Africa.

Come on Mimi, dont Mimimize it! Look on the bright side of things. Obama give a carot to Ghana, a stick to Kenya and words of wisdom to Africa that carry a strong warning to leaders who are wrecking Africa’s societies with their corrupt life styles.


This is only a small portion of the interview!!! Frustrating, worthless.
