The Great African Leader: A Tribute to Kofi Annan From Africa you had your roots
In modesty you became a great leader
In thy grace you led a great nation, the “UNITED NATIONS”
For you were always a hero among the heroes.

You have ensured a legacy
To be envied by many
A legacy that has shown
That the world is one
In race
In thinking
In planning

And Africa
Oh! Africa
Is very proud
Of your leadership
A role model you are to most
To most of all the youth of Africa
You have shown us that anything is possible
That all you need to do, is put your mind to it
For you were always a hero among the heroes.

As you retire, Oh, great African leader
All stand in salute, for they’ll miss you
For in spirit you guided and showed us love
And to all who knew you and to the African continent
For you were always a hero among the heroes.

And as you usher in the new leader
We hope and believe that all will be well
As we also try
To do our best
For the future generations
The strugle continues.

Writer Profile
Erick Ochieng Otieno

I was a student from Egerton University. I pursued a course leading to a BSc in Applied Aquatic Sciences. I believe that through writing, one can relieve a lot from the heart. Inspiration came from hearing and reading. Whoever said that you have to be an old one to communicate issues of policies, did not consider that even a newborn communicates through its own way, "crying". I would like to communicate to the world all my thoughts; However minor they are, I believe they will go a great length to straighten or strengthen a policy or two somewhere and I shall have contributed to the well being of the world. How noble that is, it is for my worthy readers to let me know. So what do you think? Tell me anytime. Bye and have a nice reading.
