Comment: Danquah’s Long Walk with CIA:ORDEAL IN AFRICA

In his classic book, J F K : ORDEAL IN AFRICA, Richard Mahoney, whose father, William P. Mahoney Jr, served as US Ambassador to Ghana from 1962 to 1965, detailed how the US fought hard to contain the Soviet Union/Russian influence in Africa during the Cold war.

First, the western narrative presents the current African horrific and devastated and ravaged state as the doings of the Soviet Union/Russia…and that the US led western marauding and raiding primates are the SAVIOURS of Africa…..what twisted logic, typical western convoluted, perverted and fallacious reasonings.

Russia had nothing to do with centuries of western bloody, horrendous and criminal ravaging and dehumanising of Africa and Africans through the slave trade and colonization, and the sheer exploitation of African human and natural resources to build what is now WESTERN WEALTHY SOCIETY.

Russia being a human-centered civilization, chose to sacrifice her everything to assist, repel and contain western destructive aggression on Africa.
And that has always been the Russian traditional role and operational relationship with Africa.

Whenever, you see Russia in Africa, it is to uphold this traditional and humanistic role.

Now the topsy-turvy western philosophy is presenting Russia as the problem of Africa and the heavily brainwashed western educated Africans swallowing the tosh.

In the wisdom of the post independence African liberation forefathers, it was better to deal with the Soviet Union/Russia which helped Africa to gain Independence than western rapists who raped our grandmothers, mothers and our young women and devastated our lands.


As usual, the West launched a counter offensive against that wise decision by the African liberation forefathers by projecting them as COMMUNISTS.

Efforts were made to recruit opposition figures to spearhead this agenda….it was then the likes of JB DANQUAH and BUSIA were recruited to lead the propaganda and the plan to overthrow and assassinate PAN AFRICAN leaders, especially Nkrumah who had been at the forefront of the struggle against western brutal imperialism and colonialism.

Nkrumah was designated as a THREAT to the West and presented as an AFRICAN PROBLEM….and that his removal would automatically captivate Africa to Paradise.

When you saw the Akufo-Addo reporting Burkina Faso and Russia to Blinken, he was just following a twisted logic and long tradition of the Busia and Danquah tradition, regurgitating Western mythology which states that, RUSSIA is Africa’s problem not the EXPLOITATIVE and COLD- BLOODED and the ABUSIVE West.

It is Russia, which devastated Africa and ravaging Africa…That is western toxic and twisted logic for you.

This was how Danquah became a CIA agent, together with Busia and now the Akufo-Addo to stop Russia in Africa.

Remember, this AKUFO-ADDO, attended the Russia/Africa summit in 2019 where he was caught on camera sleeping.

1) Why go to Russia for help when you think Russia is a threat to Ghana and Africa?
Typical of a hypocritical traitor.

2) Is it Russia which is keeping the billions of trillions of African wealth in French banks thereby starving African nations of the needed funds for their developmental agenda?

3) Was it Russia which bombarded Libya and opened the floodgates for western created JIHADISTS infiltration of Africa?

It is obvious countless of Africans have benefited from Western education and largesse…but that has not changed the fortunes of Africa…the western devastation and destabilisation of Africa continues unabated with their complicity.
Most of the western educated Africans will act same as Danquah when given the opportunity.

Now Danquah, the CIA asset as captured by Richard Mahoney, in his book J F K : ORDEAL IN AFRICA.


“The matter concerned Dr. J.B. Danquah, Nkrumah’s opponent in the presidential elections of 1960, who had been released from prison a few months after Mahoney’s arrival as ambassador. Danquah paid a visit one November day to the embassy to ask Mahoney why the funds his family had been receiving during his imprisonment had been cut off after his release.

This was the first time that Mahoney had heard of the arrangement. After Danquah left, he summoned the CIA chief of station to ask why he had not been advised of the agency’s association with Danquah. Dissatisfied with the explanation, Mahoney flew to Washington two days later and personally informed Kennedy about the matter. The President reacted sharply to the news and told Mahoney that he had sent a letter to all ambassadors in May 1961 making it clear that their authority extended to all phases of embassy decision making. Kennedy then telephoned CIA Director John McCone and told him that he was sending Mahoney over to CIA headquarters and wanted the matter re­solved immediately. The understanding that emerged from the meeting at Langley was that “no undertakings of any kind, even remotely involving our situation in Ghana, would either be continued or launched without the ambassador’s knowledge and approval

This moved Senator Dodd to launch a Senate subcommittee investigation to determine whether U.S. money was aiding another communist state. Professor Kofi Busia (recently of Lomé and other exile staging grounds) provided the testimony Dodd needed: “Ghana is the center for subversive Communist activities in Western Africa.” Mahoney appealed to Washington to stall the appearance of the Dodd report, but this, of course, was not possible. Nkrumah found Dodd’s wide-ranging accusations galling in the extreme, and the fact that the senator was a senior member of the President’s own party was not lost on the Ghanaians.
