You are right DB. Kofi Annan was an icon who was known around the Globe especially in trying to bring the World together. He made me so proud that I came from Africa.
If he has stolen all the money in the United Nation to build paladian mansion for himself just like his useless colleagues in Africa, he will still die the same way without taking anything with him. He had laid a better legacy for his family and his ancestral home in Ghana. Sleep well Kofi Annan.
