In the village of Nabari on northern Ghana's dry savanna, 80-year-old Wudana Dokurugu lives with other widows in a clump of mud huts. They farm maize and soybeans in nutrient-poor soil, and say their food never lasts to the next harvest.
Organizers printed Moammar Gadhafi's portrait and mounted it on one of the flags decorating the road to the African Union summit venue back when he was expected to rule for life.
The second time around at TCU hasn't been as perfect for Matt Purke, the left-hander who has already been a first-round draft pick once _ and could be again next week.
Mr. Mitchell said its contribution "will have a remarkable effect on northern Ghana, a place where there is deep poverty even by African standards."
"There is a very strong number of countries in the African Union who believe that Gadhafi's time is up and that he should go, and there are some who - to a greater or lesser extent - do not share that view," Britain's International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell told reporters in London before heading to the talks.
