THE LATEST SENSATIONAL AND INSPIRATIONAL
BOOK COMING OUT SOON! IT IS A MUST-READ BOOK!
IT’S WRITTEN BY AN AFRICAN VILLAGE BOY FROM GHANA AND TOGO AND PUBLISHED IN THE NETHERLANDS.
Title: “LITTLE MAWU The Story of my Life”. The author is a creative writer, blogger and poet. He is a bilingual journalist because his father hails from the French speaking country Togo and his mother from the Anglophone country Ghana, both countries in West Africa.
His name Mawutodzi Kodzo Abissath is taller than the diminutive author himself. That is the mystery behind the title of the book. His formal education could not travel beyond primary school in French. He could not go to college not because he was block-headed; ironically, he was the only candidate out of nine presented by his village school to have successfully passed the toughest common entrance examination that academic year in Togo in 1972. His inability to go to secondary school was due to his parents’ financial circumstance.
The author’s life could be summarised as “where there is a will there is a way, or as the adage goes: when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” He was inspired by the writings of the great Scottish novelist, Sir Walter Scott who once said: “The best part of every man’s education is that which he gives to himself.”
Thus, out of self-motivation and self-education, the author obtained admission into the Ghana Institute of Journalism, first for Diploma in Journalism and later for Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Studies when the Institute was then affiliated to the University of Ghana, Legon. His prolific writings in arts and culture and environmental issues over the years, which he still does, help the authorities to adopt certain policies for development in his country.
Eventually, he was granted scholarship at the age of 50+ to fly to Europe to pursue his Master of Arts Degree in Development Studies in the Netherlands at the outstanding International Institute of Social Studies ISS of Erasmus University Rotterdam at The Hague. Before the airplane touched the tarmac on Netherlands’ soil, the author saw the beautiful and colourful tulip fields. He took out his pen and notebook from his briefcase and then and there composed a poem dedicated to the country entitled Netherlands – Land of Learners (on page 198).
Even the circumstance that led the author to report rather late to ISS, which caused him to miss out on the first term examination was bizarre. On top of that he had to spend almost a whole month in hospital during his studies and yet he was able to successfully complete the course with his 2013-2014 academic year group of graduates. It was a miracle!
Read the book to appreciate the power of perseverance and self-determination in life!
