The elections in Ghana last week were transparent, free and peaceful.
John Kufuor won a second and final four-year term as president. Ghana has come a long way from the oppression, socialism, and instability it experienced for so long after becoming the first sub-Saharan colony to become independent in 1957. This is the fourth election since 1992. Also see this BBC report, and this from Uganda.
