Ave, President Nana Akufo-Addo
“The most important office, and the one which all of us can, and should, fill, is that of private citizen.” AVE PRESIDENTE! SALUIT, MONSIEUR LE PRESIDENT! HOSANNA TO THE KING! When the three witches proclaimed before Macbeth: “All hail, Macbeth, King hereafter”, and said the same words to Fleance, both of them ended up consumed by the revelation to do acts of infamy that ended their lives abruptly.

However, no steps have been taken. Israel, which welcomed the Czech announcement, regards all of Jerusalem as its capital, although that is not recogn...

Egypt’s president steps up arrests of critics before Biden takes office
Although Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was the first Arab leader to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden, this does not mean that Cairo is happy to see a new US leader, especially one from the Democratic Party, which is expected to place greater emphasis on human rights in the Middle East.There has been a recent surge in human-rights violations in Egypt, monitors say.
