A Charge to Keep


In stock (can be backordered)

A Charge to Keep – a collection of his articles published since 1996 – is Raymond Tuvi’s third book. Bukom, the first article, was featured in the “My Town” segment of the July–September 1996 edition of the BBC Focus on Africa magazine.

Faith, Individual Character and National Development, is the composite theme that runs through the over 50 highly-readable essays. The Foreword is by Ambassador K.B. Asante, former Ghana High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, who served as Minister of Education, and Trade and Industry.

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President and preeminent champion of the total liberation of Africa’s longtime Executive Secretary, Mr. K.B. Asante, as he’s popularly known to a Ghanaian populace that dotes on him as Elder Statesman, and probably the “Last of the Great Ghanaian Freedom Fighters”, writes:

“The book is a welcome addition to the growing number of books written by Ghanaians who should thereby be encouraged to read more widely. The truth is that we do not read much and this is shown by the narrowness of mind many of us exhibit on national issues. By this book, Raymond Tuvi is telling us that we have one less excuse for not having any idea about what we should know.”
