Convincing the Professor the Drug Trafficking Had Stopped

by John Powell

Syndicate This Article
Kwame Mainu was worried that unless Professor Thomas was satisfied that Ghanaian students coming to Warwick University were no longer carrying drugs he would cut off the funding for the programme. The Professor had come to Kumasi to see for himself and Kwame explained his mission to the reformed cartel members. 'Professor Thomas has come to visit us from the University of Warwick in England,' he said, 'Young men and women from Kumasi University have been visiting Warwick to gain new skills and experience to help their work in Ghana but some of them have been asked to carry drugs to England and have got into trouble with the police. Professor Thomas is very concerned about this situation and wants to be sure that when we send people in the future they will not be carrying drugs.' He repeated what he had said in Twi to make sure that his compatriots had understood.
Then Kwame asked Kofi Boateng to explain to the professor the part he had played in arranging the transport of drugs. 'I am a student at Kumasi University,' he began, 'and I knew someone working in the dean's office who would sell me the names of the people selected to travel to Warwick.'
'What did you do with the names?' asked the professor.
'I gave them to Bra Yaw.'
'Yes,' said Bra Yaw, 'and I would talk to the people and try to persuade them to carry a package to London.'
'Did you tell them what was in the package?'
'No.'
'Did you give them money?'
'Yes, of course.'
'Did they all agree?'
'No, only two of them agreed.'
'What part in all this was played by the other Kofi?' asked Professor Thomas looking at Kofi Adjare. Kwame quickly repeated the question in Twi, and anxiously waited for the albino linguist to reply. Would he mumble an obscure proverb in Twi? You could never be sure with Kofi Adjare. 'My role was in communication,' he began, much to Kwame's relief, 'I would inform our people in the UK of the details of the delivery.'
Now the professor reached the nub of his inquiry, 'Can you all assure me that you have stopped this activity?' It was Bra Yaw who replied. 'Some years ago we were led by two big Kumasi traders but an Englishman persuaded them to link up with a Lebanese company. We small boys never liked this but were forced to go along with it. The Englishman was sent to prison in England and our two big people were sent to prison in Ghana. Now both the elders have died and Oboroni is still in prison, so the connection to the Lebanese is broken. Our senior, Kofi Adjare, decided to stop the drugs work and we agreed with him. Now we have all stopped.'
