You Know Where To Find Me If You Want To Kill Me

Martin Luther King Jr.

Bad association spoils useful habits. The reason many like to keep away from lies, hypocrisy, crime, violence, prostitution etc. But in today’s world, everything has changed. If you are not a bad influence you can’t get friends. Looking for a true friend now, is like a search for a precious stone on a large acre of plot.

Nevertheless, those that want to live in truth, will continue to search, in spite of the pain, agony, humiliation, threat etc, that follow them. I was raised in a family that believed everything opposite to the principles in the Bible, including laziness, is a sin. Therefore I find it extremely hard to smile, when it’s time to frown or praise when time to criticize.

The decay and corruption of the society have rapidly affected every sector, including our judiciary system. Truth will not set you free, instead it may give you a lot of discomfort and sometimes may lead to your death, as it happened to Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, for opposing autism vaccine he considered dangerous for the health and former New York Times journalist, Sarah Kershaw,  exposing  the CIA’s mind control program of illegal program of experiments on human subjects.

Reading such articles in this dangerous world don’t scare me, instead they encourage me. The reason I teamed up with Holland’s Micro-Surgeon/Scientist Johan Van Dongen, to write every necessary article, to let the world know that a medical crime is being covered up by European and American leaders.

Just as I said, the truth will not always set you free, some may give you a lot of worries. Following his forty-years of research, fully and satisfied that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes used as bio-weapons against Africa, Professor Dongen published his findings, but little did he know that his native country, The Netherlands (Holland) will punish him for publishing the truth. He was betrayed by some of his scientist friends and eventually it cost him his job as a lecturer at the university.

The same hatred is generated towards me by some of the Belgian journalists, due to my uncensored raw articles. It’s like I’m exposing them. It’s like I have them to be recognized as liars, rather than self-dedicated honest journalists. If you are an European or American journalist and you find it hard to write openly that Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever etc; are medical crimes against Africa, I ‘m an African, I will do that and please don’t hate me for this. Hate yourselves for being liars and hypocrites.

About the fear of dying, that’s not in my agenda. Truth is always bitter than the bile. If you want that bitterness to taste sweet in your mouth, try to cultivate the habit of speaking the truth, because it’s our responsibility to restore out nation’s dignity, not to ruin it.

Should in case I die today, I will be very happy to go down my grave, but I want the truth to be published. The Belgian media shouldn’t write I committed suicide or drug related incidence, because Joel Savage doesn’t know what suicide is, above all I haven’t seen hashish before let alone cocaine.

An Open Letter To Bill Gates, Alias Mr. Depopulator

DED 2Depopulation:”At least 350,000 must be killed each day”- Bill Gates.

By Joel Savage and Johan Van Dongen

During a recent interview of Bill Gates by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Mr. Gates openly admitted that vaccinations are designed so that governments can depopulate the world. 

According to him in order to successfully depopulate an “overcrowded world” at least 350,000 must be killed each day, and he says this can be done via vaccine programs.

This statement may shock a lot of people, especially the common man, but not high learned people and scientists, including Holland’s Professor Johan Van Dongen.

Apart from the Micro-surgeon and scientist’s research that revealed that Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever and other deadly diseases, were laboratory engineered and used on mankind as bio-weapons, he has volumes of documents covering  Bill Gates’  medical crime of depopulation programs.

Professor Dongen’s documents didn’t only exposed Bill Gates’ medical crime activities, but also World Health Organization, The Rockefeller Foundation and the Center for Diseases Control.  All of them actively engaged to commit the most heinous crime in medical history. The effect drastically affected Africa.

Mr. Gates, many times, if Prof. Dongen wants his voice heard over those depopulation programs, many people think he was misleading or out of his mind, but your interview with Dr. Gupta would let the world know that Dongen’s research and claim that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes against Africa, are facts not an exaggeration.

Mr. Gates, you will agree that you’ve been in this medical crime business for a very long time. You will also agree with me that you have escaped exposure and punishment, because the World Health Organization, CDC, FBI and the CIA are protecting you.

Your protection is very necessary, because when your million dollar industry collapses, it’s going to be suicidal, since the whole world, including the economy of America will experience a chronic economic depression and also the profit making pharmaceutical companies will be affected too.

The more disturbing fact is your continuous protection by the law, enjoying impunity, while Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was murdered for just opposing vaccine, he believes was dangerous for autism. Again you are being protected by World Health Organization and Center for Diseases Control, while you make your money from other people’s mystery.

Mr. Gates, if you will permit me, we want to know why you prey on the poor? Your depopulation program targets, Africa, Asia and Latin-America. If you are doing a good job and being honest, then depopulation should have been a general issue, including Europe and America.

Mr. Gates, would you call yourself a successful businessman? If you are, then I’m sorry to tell you that you make your money out of other people’s misery. You created your wealth out of the suffering and killing of innocent children and women.

It’s a big shame to your entire family. Just as we wrote some weeks ago, asking the Rockefeller family to change their names, due to their criminal history, you should also do the same, because you and your family have indelible blood stain in your hands.

New York Times Reporter Found Dead After Exposing MKUltra

Sarah Kershaw

Sarah Kershaw

Posted on February 24, 2016 by Sean Adl-Tabatabai in News, US

A former New York Times reporter has been found murdered in the Dominican Republic following her exposure of MKUltra. Sarah Kershaw was found asphyxiated due to strangulation on Monday at her apartment in Sosua.

Project MKUltra, often referred to as the CIA’s mind control program, was the code name given to an illegal program of experiments on human subjects, designed and undertaken by the the CIA. Ms Kershaw published an article with the New York Times exploring this subject in 2008 with her article Sharing their Demons on the Web, writing:

“For people who regularly visit and write on message boards on the mind-control sites, the idea that others would describe the sites as promoting delusional and psychotic thinking is simply evidence of a cover-up of the truth.”

In her article, Ms. Kershaw wrote that people who felt they were being targeted had found the support of Missouri Representative Jim Guest, who told the Times: “I’ve had enough calls, some from credible people — professors — being targeted by nonlethal weapons. They become psychologically affected by it. They have trouble sleeping at night.”

When Ms. Kershaw wrote her article, psychotronic warfare was not legal against US citizens, but that all changed with the National Defense Authorization Act 2013. In response to the legalization of psychotronic warfare, Abreu Report published an article, writing:

“Psychotronic weapons are those that act to take away a part of the information which is stored in a man’s brain. It is sent to a computer, which reworks it to the level needed for those who need to control the man, and the modified information is then reinserted into the brain. These weapons are used against the mind to induce hallucinations, sickness, mutations in human cells, ‘zombification,’ or even death. Included in the arsenal are VHF generators, X-rays, ultrasound, and radio waves.”

Is it possible that Ms. Kershaw stumbled upon some new information that made her dangerous? Considering the speed at which the capabilities of psychotronic weapons has improved, the possibility is extremely high.

Opinion and conclusion- Joel Savage

The fear of being killed by the CIA, FBI or America’s secret assassination squad, is exactly what is haunting many journalists, through out Europe and America, preventing them to reveal to the general public that Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever were biological weapons against humanity, and above all African-Americans and Africans were used for experimentation and drug tests. The question is: If everyone fears to speak the truth, then what kind of society are we creating for the next generation, including our children?

 

Why America Killed Ghaddafi And Saddam Hussein?

SaddamFormer Iraqi and Libyan leaders: Saddam Hussein and Muammar Ghaddafi

By Joel Savage and Johan Van Dongen

Everyone fears something in this world. Many white people claim blacks are criminals, the reason they fear them. That’s not true, after all there are also White criminals. In Belgium for the past fifteen years, I quickly realized Belgians try to keep away from Black people, not because they are criminals, but scared that the Black man will let them pay for the horrible crimes they committed against them in Africa.

Africa is a big continent with diverse people and languages. Even though they lack powerful and sophisticated weapons to defend themselves in time of war, in terms of its size, Europe and America fear the African continent more than anything on earth. Even in Europe, many Europeans fear the presence of black people, especially when speaking a language they don’t understand.

Africans were living in that remote deadly continent for ages, before the first White missionaries ever set their feet and the vaccine for malaria was found. After many Europeans died of malaria, hence the ‘The White Man’s Grave’ was given as Africa’s second name. Their next goal was to find out how Africans were able to survive on that harsh tough continent.

Europeans were not happy over the way Africans were stronger than them. Instead of learning how they survive on that harsh continent, they decided to invade it, loot the continent, capture the people into slavery and depopulate it with deadly diseases including Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever, Ziga virus and other deadly diseases.

That wasn’t enough for Europe and America. They made sure to kill every powerful African leader that poses a threat to them. In South Africa Steve Biko was brutally murdered. After Kwame Nkrumah survived coup attempts, including the Kulungugu bomb in the Northern region of Ghana, in another coup orchestrated by the CIA, Nkrumah was overthrown-ed and died in exile. Another powerful African leader is off the list of America.

Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi

The next powerful African head of state Europe and America targeted was Patrice Lumumba of Congo. Belgium couldn’t stand the pain, when the country attained its independence, despite all the riches stolen from the country. In a coup master-minded by Europe and America, Lumumba was brutally murdered by Belgium. Belgium has since apologized for this horrible crime they committed, but Africans can forgive but they can’t forget.

After those two powerful great African leaders, no African head of state posed a threat to Europe and America, more than Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi. The oil rich country leader was strong, stubborn and had no respect for America and Europe. He usually called them ‘Dogs, uncircumcised or infidels.’

The hatred of Ghaddafi towards Europe and America was so intense that he started to wage war of terror and sponsoring terrorism against them. Ronald Reagan knew the only way calm down Ghaddafi was to be assassinated. Under operation code-named ‘Operation El Dorado Canyon, United States attacked Libya on Tuesday, 15 April 1986. The attack was carried out by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps via air strikes, in response to the 1986 in Berlin discotheque bombing.

There were 40 reported Libyan casualties, and one US plane was shot down, resulting in the death of two airmen, but Ghaddafi survived the attack. Ghaddafi denied terrorism actions against Europe and America, but he couldn’t continue denying over his involvement in the bombing of flight Pan Am 103 which killed 270 passengers, crew and townspeople over and in the Scottish town of Lockerbie in December 1988, because two Libyans were identified as official suspects.

Even though Libya compensated the victims of the Lockerbie bombing by handing $1.5bn to the families of those killed on the Pan Am flight, his presence as a powerful leader in Africa , gave Europe and America sleepless nights. Whatever events which led to the capture and assassination of the leader on October 20, 2011, leading to his death, were plans orchestrated by Europe and America. Now that Libya is in ruins and powerless, Europe and America can now sleep very well. Why should the mouse get worried when the cat is trapped high on the tree?
                   Saddam Hussein: The Iraqi leader with iron fist
Saddam Hussein believed to be a successful leader, the needs to be ruthless, merciless, wicked and unfriendly with Europe and America are necessary. In fact, he was one of the evil men in political history followed by Idi Amin of Uganda. Holding on to power for 30 years, Saddam launched two attacks on the neighboring states of Iran and Kuwait.
                   Was Saddam once America’s best friend? The United States once supported Saddam, in curbing the export of a radical theocratic revolution, cooperated with the Iraqi government by supplying Saddam with economic assistance, weapon sales, the assistance of the US naval battle group, and satellite and other intelligence information in regard to the placement of Iranian troops.

This favour came back haunting America. It was no surprise that President Bush used the excuse that Saddam was habouring weapons of mass destruction to invade the country. “The dictator who is assembling the world’s most dangerous weapons has already used them on whole villages, leaving thousands of his own citizens dead, blind or disfigured,” said George Bush.

The accusation that Iraq has used chemical weapons against its citizens is a familiar part of the debate. The piece of hard evidence most frequently brought up concerns the gassing of Iraqi Kurds at the town of Halabja in March 1988, near the end of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war. President Bush himself has cited Iraq’s “gassing its own people,” specifically at Halabja, as a reason to topple Saddam Hussein.

But the truth is, all we know for certain is that Kurds were bombarded with poison gas that day at Halabja. We cannot say with any certainty that Iraqi chemical weapons killed the Kurds. This is not the only distortion in the Halabja story.

Saddam Hussein was eventually toppled and executed, but no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, making George Bush one of the greatest liars in America’s political history. Everything is completely wrong in America yesterday and today, as they keep on showing their prowess through the destruction of other people.

Why America is now using Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Spreading Zika Virus As Bio-warfare?

It will be recalled that on September 18, 2014, Guinean government officials visited the village of Womme in the country’s southeast, they planned to educate people about Ebola and show them how to avoid it — in a region where many still believe the virus doesn’t exist. But it all went disastrously wrong. Villagers responded furiously, pelting the delegation with stones and beating the visitors with clubs, according to Guinean radio.

The delegation, which included doctors and journalists, fled into the bush after the attack Tuesday. The Guinean government said Thursday that eight delegation members had been killed, including several journalists, news agencies reported. There also were reports that 21 people had been injured.

“It’s very sad and hard to believe, but they were killed in cold blood by the villagers,” government spokesman Albert Damantang Camara said, according to Agence France-Presse. A local police officer, Richard Haba, said the villagers believed that Ebola “is nothing more than an invention of white people to kill black people.”

EUROPE AND AMERICA ARE NOW AWARE THAT AFRICANS KNOW AIDS, EBOLA AND LASSA FEVER ETC; WERE MEDICAL CRIMES AGAINST THE CONTINENT

Since after this deadly incidence in Guinea, Europe and America are very cautious and aren’t prepared to lose any of their nationals from the health sector on African soil, so they planned a new strategy to inflict pain and destruction by testing the created bio-weapons on poor people, hence the genetically modified mosquitoes now spreading Zika virus through out Latin-America.

Yes! America want to prove that if the medical crime can’t be done by touching down in countries or where ever they wanted, it can be done as bio-weapon through the air, but let us just wait and see, because what’s coming tomorrow is hidden from the wise and the prudent.

Zika Virus: Factories Of Nazi Comrades Revealed

 

Bio-weapon Zika virus

A child affected with Zika Virus: The disease is a bio-weapon but World Health Organization is lying and deceiving the public

.By Micro-Surgeon and Scientist Johan Van Dongen

The scientific origin of the Zika virus is that the virus is named after the Ugandan Zikabos because it was there for the first time in 1947, isolated from the blood of a Rhesus monkey. It was only in 1968, the virus succeeded demonstrating in people.

The Zika virus is endemic in large parts of Africa. As a result of human influences, the virus also surfaced in Asia, including countries in Central Asia, South East Asia and Yap Island (Micronesia) in the Pacific.

At that specific time, the fear is that the virus will quickly spread through the different islands in the Pacific Ocean will and eventually reach the American continent. That fear has become a reality by ending up in South America and Germany today, the country of Hitler.

The Zika virus in South America, adds as a third virus disease, which can be transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, shows symptoms that match a mild form of dengue, including joint pain, headache, and fever.

On November 6, 2015, the virus also made headlines in Suriname. The laboratory of the University Hospital Paramaribo (AKKAR) has fixed may argue that some patients have sustained the Zika virus. In January 2016 first Zika test virus was developed in Germany. The researchers found out that only one in five people infected with the Zika virus will get sick.

Rockefeller Foundation in Entebbe (Uganda)

Supranational poison factories must keep running, so every day with loads of drugs out of the gate they are flooded and can be found anywhere in the world, once sold. All indications in the past century, there are science experiments in Africa with a number of manipulated infinite microorganisms in Saharan Africa and beneath. It was clear from the outset as Africa became an excellent breeding ground for those interested.

In 1936, the British Government and the Rockefeller Foundation in Entebbe (Uganda), built the Yellow Fever Research Institute. In the very isolated regions of Bwamba, West Nile Virus (1940) and a Bwamba-fever virus (1941) were discovered. In 1944, they met the Semliki Forest virus, and in 1946, two more viruses were found. They were the Mengo-encephalitis virus and the Bunyavirus (like the Crimean-Congo virus and the hantavirus which is a member of the Bunya-aviridae).

American and British scientists found out that the region of Uganda was actually swarmed with viruses. In the fifties and sixties were fifteen others, among the ‘Bwamba group. Recharged viruses found in an area mainly occupied by agricultural population. According to the Englishman Cook, in 1901, very rarely faced diseases occurred.

Within a few decades, Bwamba became a unique cluster of the most remarkable and particularly malicious virus species, which from the outset have been very willing to rely on researchers from France, England, and the United States, once one of those viruses again struck somewhere.

During the Cold War, Uganda was engaged with both military and civilian doctors. In Bwamba region, the Yellow Fever Research Institute was then very active and in Entebbe and in the Zika forest, much research was conducted by the East African Virus Research Institute. In addition, several military hospitals were scattered across the country. Hospitals were located near the city of Arua. EH Williams and Kuluva-hospitals, serving the American mission in 1941. Between 1951 and 1965, Williams’ hospital recorded more than 41,000 patients with the same disease.

For over 50 years, the region is plagued by various diseases in the city Arua. Between 1943 and 1944, there raged very deadly measles epidemic. In the early sixties, many infants had anemia and half of those children later died of malaria infection, according to official statements. The Kaposi’s sarcoma was active and in 1966, there was an epidemic of Burkitt’s lymphoma, followed by an outbreak of Hepatitis-B.

After 1970, the inhabitants of the region were particularly affected by tetanus infections and in 1978, the measles came back. In the eighties, it is known that people were suffering from AIDS and in 1989 and 1990, scientists from the Institute Pasteur were back to inject Ugandan children with 1,558,800 doses of TB vaccine. Thereafter, in Kenya and Zimbabwe, it was recorded that the vaccine had serious side effects. The diseases were then given all sorts of weird names but not the name that was right: “AIDS!”

Old Nazi institutes continue their collaboration with western institutes.
There were also three foreign delegations present namely Behringwerke AG, in Marburg, am Lahn and the Paul Ehrlich Institute, in Frankfurt am Main, both from Germany. What they did in the Second World War, we all know about it and there was also the Institute of Sera and Vaccine Immunology in Zagreb, from the former Yugoslavia.

Precisely those three institutions were closely involved in the development of the Ebola virus, which was officially born in 1967, in the German Marburg. Whereas the Wistar Institute one of the world’s leading institutes has became involved especially in the field of retroviruses and Aids in humans and animals.

Present were very smart people, but beware of the fact that they showed that ‘smartness in a form of stupidity’ because why should they use human beings to carry out experiments? They all discussed the highlights of a large number of vaccines specifically tested in Central and West Africa and innocent people were executed.

These were supposedly tested vaccines against smallpox, polio, measles, leukemia and Epstein Barr Virus. Especially the latter virus in the civilized countries just causes glandular fever, but in African countries, it leads to cancer and AIDS as a result of genetic manipulation.

The development and testing of viruses on humans and animals were mainly conducted under the auspices of the CIA and the necessary biological warfare preparations were manufactured by MSD and Litton BioNetic. The first South African who went over to ring the bell was a physician. When he published his research, what happened next: He had a motorcycle accident and was killed.

News of that accident appeared in a local newspaper in the Ugandan city of Kampala, an article that the CIA was accused of the fact that its employees disguised as scholars and journalists, spreading lies about the origin of the AIDS virus just as they did to Thabo Mbeki.

Not long after this verbal battle ended, in the house of Wilson Carswell, one of the leaders of the Ugandan AIDS research, his entire contents, including computer equipment and all files were completely destroyed. At least that was officially notified. Carswell, a soldier of the British Army, ostensibly managed to escape.

Later he dived into the complex biological warfare from the British in Porton Down. Since he became head of the AIDS Unit, at the Department of National Health, he was primarily responsible for population change in South Africa outage.

J.N.K. Savage:Tracing The Works Of A Great Journalist Behind Computer Age

SAV 6Journalist/Documentary film Producer and Director Justin N.K. Savage and wife Nancy-Elizabeth Savage (Nancy-Elizabeth Hudson) You looking at my mother and father.

Justin Nobleman Kodwo Savage was a professional journalist, documentary film producer and director, born at Cape Coast, in the central region of Ghana in 1932. While in active service, he passed away on January 29, 1976.

At Guinea Press, now ‘The Ghanaian Times’ during the Kwame Nkrumah era, Mr. Savage travelled extensively across the globe, whenever the president leaves the country to participate in world affairs.

At home, Ghanaians were able to receive first-hand information from Mr. Savage, over Nkrumah’s trip overseas, appearing in ‘The Evening News,’ newspaper dominated by party news, CPP, and adulation of Nkrumah.

At Guinea Press, Justin Savage had the opportunity to make further studies in journalism in London, England, but Nkrumah’s interest in communism took him off Ghana soil to many Eastern European countries including Poland, Czechoslovakia etc, and Russia.

In the sixties, the president of the then Czechoslovakia invited African journalists to his country. Justin Savage heads the African journalists from Ghana, but the Ghanaians presence stole the show, because of the native Kente cloth they put on. Kente exposes the rich tradition and culture of Ghana.

Justin Savage filed his press cuts and combined all his publications which appeared in the newspapers as a magazine, naming it “A Mixture Of Periodicals.” These publications later after his death, became my favourite book, assisting me to gain more writing skills when my interest increased to be a writer.

Darkness fell on Ghana when Nkrumah was overthrown-ed on February 24, 1966, in a coup organized by CIA and local collaborators. Chaos and curfews followed amidst jubilation and sadness. Mr. Savage served Guinea press a year more and he resigned.

He followed a course in technology at the Kumasi Science and Technology, where he studied film production. After his course, he entered into Ghana Broadcasting Corporation as ‘Advisor on film for television.’

He excelled in his profession and had promotions. It wasn’t long when Friedrich Ebert Foundation (West German Television Team) established a television project attached to the Broadcasting House in Ghana.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is a German political foundation named after Friedrich Ebert, Germany’s first democratically elected president. Headquartered in Bonn and Berlin, the foundation contributes to social democracy by means of:

Political education in order to reinforce its fundamental values, research and scientific analysis of central policy areas, various forms of public dialogue in order to pave the way for it, scholarship programs for students and Ph.D. candidates, development cooperation aimed at global justice and building bridges of international cooperation for worldwide democracy.

For efficient service and to be familiar with new developments in television production, Mr. Savage was at West German for an intensive course. He returned to the Broadcasting House and was appointed ‘Documentary Film Producer and Director.

At the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, he made a number of documentary films, especially during the exhibition of Ghana and other African products at both the first and second ‘Ghana International Trade Fair,’ in Accra.

Kodwo, the name his co-workers loved to call him, did a number of documentary films, including ‘Ghana At A Glance, Cocoa In Ghana, Backyard Industries and ‘Furnace in a Village’, produced in 1972. I had the opportunity to play a role in ‘Backyard Industries.’

I grew up to see some of his friends such as Mr. Kofi Badu, the Managing Director of Daily Graphic and Mr. Willie Donkor, the Editor of Weekly Spectator, still in the media. In the early nineties, January, I contacted one of my father’s friends called Mr. Ebo Biney, at the Broadcasting House, requesting if he could telecast one of my father’s film on January 29, for remembrance. It came as a shock to me when I learned that all my father’s films got burnt, following a fire which engulfed Ghana Broadcasting Corporation some time ago.

Since then I have been working very hard to see if I can find any of my father’s work online, despite far behind computer age or advanced modern technology. Like winning a lotto, I discovered two. The first is at the website of Len Pole, a Museum Consultant: “Advisor on a film for television, ‘Furnace in a Village’, produced by Kodwo Savage, Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, 1972.” – http://www.lenpole.com/I contacted the museum consultant after the discovery of my father’s work on his website. I was delighted when he told a few years ago ‘Furnace in a village’ was shown at Cannes Film Festival.

Then I had a new break through  when I discovered another work at: Selected Bibliography in Communication – jstor by Graham B. Kerr, under the topic- All African governments are committed to development and most wish to …Journalism Quarterly [forthcoming]. ….. SAVAGEJ.N.K. “Ghana Jugend begeistert.- . “Ghana inspires youth.”

The selected Bibliography in Communication is a book published by the Canadian Association of African Studies. Justin Savage writes:

“We must bridge the gap between leaders and masses, between government and people . . No government tells the people everything, but every government must reach the people so as to tell them what they should be told” – Julius Nyerere

Continue reading: https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/483601.pdf?

The search for my father’s work isn’t yet over. As time goes on when I discover something new, I will keep on updating this article. I hope readers will enjoy reading it and if any reader has any suggestion to improve it, you are always welcome.

The incredible story of this great writer neglected when he was a child is now available at Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Writer-Died-Joel-Savage-ebook/dp/B013L54A7O

How Kennedy’s Years of Lightning, Day of Drums Stole The Heart Of Ghanaians

DePree 1People’s Republic of Mozambique President Samora Machel meeting with U.S. Ambassador Willard DePree in July 1980. Photo: Courtesy of Willard DePree

Years after waiting to get to Africa, WILLARD DE PREE, US Political Officer, finally had his chance. He was initially assigned to Kaduna, in Nigeria, but that appointment was cancelled  Bill Edmondson, who was head of the political section in Accra had to return to the United States for family reasons.

Oliver Troxel, the DCM, asked De Pree, if I would be interested in going out to replace Bill Edmondson. He was very pleased with the assignment, especially in a country under one of Africa’s strongest leaders, Kwame Nkrumah. America played a significant role in Ghana’s politics and which cost Nkrumah at the end, when he was overthrown-ed a coup orchestrated by the CIA.

Ambassador Willard De Pree born in Michigan in 1928 and received his B.A. from Harvard University and an M.A. from the University of Michigan in 1952, was assigned to Ghana from 1964 to 1968. During his tenure of office in Accra, the US embassy received copies of the film that USIA had put out entitled, “Years of Lightning, Day of Drums,” about the Kennedy Administration.

Shortly before that film was produced, the embassy had sent the regional governors of Ghana to the United States for a tour. They had been escorted by Jack Matlock, who was then an officer at the embassy in Ghana. When the film arrived, the embassy decided to show it around Ghana at each of the regional capitals.

De Pree together with Jack Matlock, went to Blogatanga, in the northern region of Ghana and the governor put the screen in the middle of the town square and thousands of people, seated on all sides of the screen, showed up to see it. It was incredible, the reaction and feeling of black Africa toward Kennedy and the Kennedy Administration.
