A Day for 'Unsung Heroes': "Unsung Heroes" in the African-Caribbean Community in the UK and beyond Have Been Honoured at a High Profile Awards Ceremony in London. Charles Wereko Reports


Wereko, Charles, New African


President John Agyekum Kufuor of Ghana won this year's top award given by the London-based Reconciliation International Ministry, a member of the Apostolic Congress of Great Britain which provides spiritual and bereavement support for the African community in the UK. The president was given the Community Leadership Award in recognition of his "extraordinary leadership qualities and outstanding statesmanship", according to the citation that came with the award, which was received on behalf of President Kufuor by the Ghana high commissioner to the UK, Isaac Osei.

The high profile event, organised as part of this year's Black History Month (UK) celebrations, was to recognise outstanding black heroes for their contribution to the development of their communities and humanity as a whole.

Bishop Frimpong Manso, founder of Reconciliation International and an indefatigable servant of the African-Caribbean community who himself deserves an award for his sterling role, said the event was to celebrate excellence and recognise the work of "unsung heroes" in the black community. Presenting the top prize to President Kufuor, Baroness Valerie Amos, the first black woman in the British cabinet and now leader of the House of Lords, praised the Ghanaian president for raising his country's profile by pushing through wide-ranging political and economic reforms, and for distinguishing himself as a peace-broker in the West African sub-region and beyond.

Ghana's envoy to the UK, Isaac Osei, thanked Reconciliation International for the award and added that the gesture would inspire Ghanaians to strive for excellence wherever they were.
