John Mahama Launches Russian Translation of Memoir in Moscow

Moscow, Russia — An extraordinary milestone was celebrated recently in Moscow as former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, launched the Russian language translation of his memoir, My First Coup D’etat and Other Stories from the Lost Decades of Africa, at the prestigious Russian Academy of Sciences.

The memoir, originally published in English in 2012 and subsequently translated into Portuguese, chronicles Mahama’s youth in Ghana and the dynamic socio-political shifts across Africa from the 1970s through the 1990s.

One chapter I believe will resonate deeply with the Russian audience recounts my time as a student at the Institute of Social Sciences in Moscow,” Mahama shared.

The era of Gorbachev and Perestroika was a time of significant change, and I was fortunate to engage in thought-provoking discussions on socialism with my inspirational philosophy lecturer, Mr. Gudoshnik. His open and interactive teaching method has stayed with me and forms a crucial part of my narrative, he added.

Mahama expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russia-Ghana Parliamentary Friendship Association, and all those involved in bringing this project to fruition.

To the Russian audience and all curious about Africa’s journey, Mahama’s memoir promises to offer a window into the continent’s heart and soul.

Presented in a style that is both easy to read and journalistically engaging, I am hopeful that it will enrich your understanding of Africa’s past and inspire reflection on our shared global future, Mahama stated.
