RIP, KOFI ANNAN
I knew I had his memoirs., in fact two of his greatest books. Therefore, I decided to painstakingly dig through my immense library and indeed I found it , the memoirs of one of the finest and most successful diplomats to have ever headed the UN. Dr.Annan's memoirs make interesting and educative reading about the magnificent role he played to help maintain international peace and security in the very fractured era of his time during which the world witnessed the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and the blazing inferno of the U.S. attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, the wars between Israel, Hizbollah and Lebanon and the brutal conflicts in Somalia, Rwanda and Bosnia, with Liberia and Sierra Leone reeling at the bavkground. In all this, Kofi Annan demonstrated the astute and excellent diplomatic skills accrued working at the UN for 40 years. He recounts the hallowed but stormy ife he lived at the helm of the highest institution responsible for peace, security , humanitarian aid and development in the world. Kofi Annan excelled himself mightily and no doubt that he was given the Nobel Peace Price. May his soul rest in peace.
