‘What do you mean by that?’’

The Glago is a very influential man. His status approaches that of the Asantehene here. He rules over a vast area with considerable gold and phosphate deposits, including the present location of the BHP mine. He is well educated, and he takes great interest in the welfare of his people.

He provides them with free education and health care, among other things. I’m not surprised he wants to reward you for helping his people in Ghana. He gets a lot of money in the form of royalties, and in addition to that French and American governments and companies are always giving him gifts because of his decency. I’m sure you will come back with a very handsome gift, although from what I hear now, you don’t really need it.

Thanks to the generous allowances from the office, I rented a modest office at Dzorwulu and employed Jane, an old school mate who was working with a miserly building contractor. I also fixed my dad’s old car and deployed it as my office car. Jane proved to be reliable and hardworking. She handled most of the errands and supervisory work on site, while I maintained regular contact with the companies offering various services. I kept my job with Hackman Consult for another year, but during that time I put a lot of work into what I had unofficially named Hackman Apartments, after my first boss, who had also given me my first big break. With the land as security and thanks to Mr. Hackman’s contacts, I was able to get the materials for the project, without putting up any money of my own.
