On August 15th, 2013, the Ambassador, H.E. Dr. Erieka Bennett, founder and head of Mission at the (AU) Diaspora African Forum hosted an Awards presentation to honor individuals who had made progress in positively impacting the Diaspora community.
Among those honored were Ama K. Abebrese, renowned actress and TV host and Dr. Kofi Amoah, Ghanaian business mogul. Each of these honorees were presented their awards by the legendary Nana Rita Marley who was just recently recognized as a Ghanaian citizen when she received her Ghanaian passport at the 50th Anniversary AU Awards dinner hosted by the DAF mission two weeks ago at the La Palm hotel here in Accra.
The (AU) DAF is the first diplomatic mission globally to represent Diaspora Africans.
