Kofi Wayo – a Politician against Politicians – AfricanPod Ep 12

Welcome to this episode of AfricanPod, where we meet a Politician who says most African Politicians are incompetent,

Kofi Wayo
Phillip Nyakpo interviewed Kofi Wayo a few times in the last one-and-a-half decades

greedy and selfish. 

Kofi Wayo from Ghana is the politician. He differentiates himself by the fact that he has spent most of his life in the United States and became self-sufficient by making a lot of money as an International business man.
He attacks other politicians like no other and claims common sense is the one thing lacking among African leaders.
As fresh as this interview sounds, it was conducted in December 2001. That is 15 years years ago.
Perhaps the one thing you can take away from this interview is that the more things change, the more they remain the same.

I was speaking there to Kofi Wayo, who charges that African leaders hide their incompetence behind high level, but meaningless language. That was in December 2001, fifteen long years ago. My name is Phillip Nyakpo.
