Yeah man, I remember coming across his name in one book I read … chairman Mao ze dong. Chinese do not joke with that man’s doctrine at all… China is governed on the basis of his doctrine… recently, a chinese professor criticised him and he was striped off all his certificates. That is China for you… how I wish we could have strong systems in Ghana that even if the devil himself comes to rule us, by virtue of those systems he/she can’t do whatever he/she like and get away with it…

What Chairman Mao did was, he transformed the average Chinese spiritually, mentally, and physically. That was exactly what Nkrumah was doing.

Unfortunate for Nkrumah he was overthrown and was made powerless…

Do you recalled what I told you the other time? Hide your strength by your time. In other words, hide your strength and buy more time.

Those are the words of the Chinese great leader, Deng XiaopingDeng_Xiaoping

If Nkrumah had understood that strategy, he would have been alive by now.
