Madam Comfort Borkor Mensah

Madam Comfort Borkor Mensah was a very special person who took up challenges with zeal and committed her whole life to the service of the Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP) and Ghana.

She will be remembered as the first woman trained tractor driver in Ghana who joined the Workers’ Brigade established by the Nkrumah government to help the newly independent state achieve food self-sufficiency.

Madam Borkor drove her tractor, for many kilometers every day, carrying   her fellow brigadiers to work, taking food to marketing centres and moving seeds and other inputs.

Her dedication to work caught the attention of the Nkrumah family and she became a regular visitor to the presidential lodge where she played and help nurture Gamal, Samia and Sekou Nkrumah.

She was very loyal to her friends and party colleagues and spent a lot of her resources cooking for them and taking care of their needs. It was very usual to receive fried fish and the traditional Ga food kpekple during the celebration of the Homowo festival from a smiling Auntie Borkor.

Madam Borkor was a very strong advocate of Nkrumaist unity and spent considerable time persuading leaders of the PNC, CPP and others to sink their differences and create a common platform to enable them win elections.

In a recent conversation with her, she said “when I die and meet Nkrumah in the next world, I want to be able to tell him that we built a united Nkrumaist party and won elections again. I am sure that only an Nkrumaist party can solve the many problems facing the people of Ghana”.

Auntie Borkor has played her part and we can only hope that the comrades she leaves behind will continue her work for a prosperous Ghana free from neo-colonialist control.

May her work continue to inspire us all.

    Orange sings a music in the tune of Ylvis’ “What Does The Fox Say” so Baby Carrot can study his kitchen area sounds, but he gets
    bewildered when Orange evidently teaches him the incorrect audio manufactured by a sock.
    Orange fulfills a charcoal briquet and annoys him with nonsensical phrases.
    Orange seems in the sport Flappy Bird and annoys the titular
    chicken, cheating by applying a hoverboard. A powdered donut that generates black holes
    appears in the kitchen area, and ejects different objects from
    the black holes, leaving Orange and Pear in awe. The satanic Deviled Egg appears in the kitchen area and tries to discount for Orange’s
    soul. The gang is sledding alongside one another and when Orange tries to go downhill
    with no sled, he unintentionally slips and turns into a snowball that wrecks every little thing
    in its way. Orange fulfills Emmett the Oven Mitt, a woman attractor, who makes an attempt to mentor Orange

    he cheats on girls, as an angry mob of female meals and inanimate objects confront
