Dallas – The ceremony was a revelation of rich culture as shown by the good people of the Republic of Guinea; a West African Country. The occasion was the celebration of the birth of pretty Hawa Nadine Bah; 2nd daughter of Djenabou and Ahmed T. Bah.
Guests arrived at the Grand Hotel Dallas venue with a retinue of assorted pre seasoned and cooked meals maiking the buffet styled event somewhat like a “Taste of Guinea”.
Family and friends of Djenabou and Ahmed had arrived from as far as New York, Boston, Maryland among others.
Talk about African print and fashion? it was all shown in varying colors as adorned by the very beautiful aunt’s of the day.
ABOUT REPUBLIC OF GUINEA
In 1974, the Democratic Party of Guinea (PDG) was founded as a section of the new international African Democratic Rally (RDA), giving Ahmed Sekou Toure and his associates political power. The RDA broke with the communists in 1950, and Toure asserted that the Marxist doctrine of class struggle was inapplicable to Africa and that the movement must be freed of any vestige of European power. Guinea became an independent republic in 1958. Sekou Toure and the PDG remained in power until 1984, when the present government took power one week after the sudden death of Sekou Toure. On July 4, 1985, there was an unsuccessful coup attempt in which a number of people lost their lives. On December 22, 1985, President Conte announced a far reaching economic reform program that has began to revitalize the economy.Guinea did not hold democratic elections until 1993 when Gen. CONTE (head of the military government) was elected president of the civilian government. He was reelected in 1998 and again in 2003. Unrest in Sierra Leone and Liberia has spilled over into Guinea on several occasions over the past decade, threatening stability and creating humanitarian emergencies.Fighting along the Sierra Leonean and Liberian borders, as well as refugee movements, have caused major economic disruptions, aggravating a loss in investor confidence. Panic buying has created food shortages and inflation and caused riots in local markets. Guinea is not receiving multilateral aid; the IMF and World Bank cut off most assistance in 2003. Growth rose slightly in 2005, primarily due to increases in global demand and commodity prices on world markets.
