NAIROBI Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Outlet , Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Former world women's middleweight boxing champion is now a mental wreck and has been eating from dustbins.
Conjestina Achieng', 35, who is now admitted at Avenue Health Care Hospital in Kisumu County Cheap Nike Air Max Thea Outlet , about 300km west of Nairobi, was taken to the facility by well wishers after her condition got worse and who also volunteered to foot her medical bills.
Fighting under the nick-name "Hands of Steel", Achieng' is a two-time world champion who did not have a local match and had to be content with playing against fighters from outside Kenya Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 Outlet , many of them from the U.S..
During a recent visit to the village, Xinhua was told of horrid tales about the extent of Achieng's mental retardation with only few people being about to recognize her.
"That is one woman I admired most," a passerby whispered as he walked past Achieng's homestead. "I liked her courage and confidence. Whenever she spoke Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Outlet , I felt truly a Kenyan."
Achieng's rise to stardom was one of sheer determination and a battle against the odds which catapulted her to cult figure status.
At 27, most pugilists would ordinarily be planning to clear their desks, but that is when Achieng' got started.
She was Kenya's first genuine celebrity Cheap Nike Air Max Outlet , managing to earn considerable media attention even though her earnings were nowhere near her acquired status.
Yet the champion found herself in no man's land: her rare talents and modest achievements were hallowed by most men but not women, or other pro-women groups.
"A role model? I would have exhausted all disciplines before I get down to boxing," one woman replied when asked about her impression of the boxer.
Achieng's talent commitment could have won her more belts and big money Cheap Air Max 1 Outlet , but without the support from women, this talent headed to the wilderness.
Achieng's decision to join the ring was an afterthought; her sojourn in the ring had failed to yield.
She regularly suffered from pecuniary embarrassment, rent arrears; the kind of conditions not sufficient to add weight.
Achieng' was a great boxer Cheap Air Max Thea Outlet , no doubt. What she needed were other two variables to complete the circuit if her dream of making it big were to be realized - promoter and manager and then the rest would follow.
However, Achieng' refused to say whether she had a manager or not. If she had, he must have been the lousy type who wanted to paint her picture as that of dire misery and deprivation.
If the strategy was to attract corporate sponsorship Cheap Air Max 2017 Outlet , it was dead on arrival. The corporate world does not give sponsorship to those who need it.
Rather they support those who warrant it. They are not willing to be identified with the topsy-turvy strugglers; it is not good for their image.
Last year, she was arrested after she assaulted and caused bodily harm to her landlord, but her case was dropped after they reached an out-of-court settlement.
Achieng' took to the ring in 2000 after she was inspired by her elder brother Joseph Kusimba who is a former boxer.
She made a professional debut in 2002 in Nairobi during after winning a four-round bout over fellow Kenyan Naomi Wanjiku.
TEHRAN Cheap Air Max 2018 Outlet , Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry on Monday said that the Islamic republic insists on the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iraq.

Qasemi made the remarks with reference to the independence referendum underway in Iraq's northern Kurdistan re.

USERS of iPhone find it difficult to switch off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth after they upgrade their phones to the latest operating system iOS 11 puma creepers bordeaux australia , which may consume unexpected power and data traffic and bring potential security risks.
Industry insiders warned users to be more cautious before the system update and wait for further updates.
Besides new features and changes, the new iOS 11 has its own bugs and software problems, like every major release of iOS, such as poor Wi-Fi connectivity, random connection drops and slow Internet speed, according to media report and forum posts.
In China, people don’t seem fond of the new Control Center www.creepersaustralia.com , which can’t really switch off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features after disconnecting ongoing connections. The networks are still “ready” for new connections like other Wi-Fi networks and devices like Apple Watch.
With the new system, users find the setup “unfriendly and unclear” and out of battery within “three to four hours”. Some tech-savvy users choose to downgrade the new system to the previous one, which is not recommended by Apple, according to posts in a Chinese social website.
“In an attempt to keep you connected to Apple devices and services, iOS 11 compromises users’ security,” said the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
China has standardized the names of six places in South Tibet, a region that is part of China's territory but in which some areas are currently controlled by India.
China's Ministry of Civil Affairs announced on April 13 on its website that it had standardized in Chinese characters puma creepers rihanna australia , Tibetan and Roman alphabet the names of six places in South Tibet, which India calls "Arunachal Pradesh" according to the regulations of the State Council on place names.
The official names of the six places using the Roman alphabet are Wo'gyainling, Mila Ri, Qoidêngarbo Ri, Mainquka, Bümo La and Namkapub Ri.
"China did not previously have official names for some South Tibet areas, but now China has a better understanding and recognition of the geography in South Tibet puma creepers australia , including the names of areas in the region," Xiong Kunxin, a professor of ethnic studies at Beijing's Minzu University of China, told the Global Times on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, naming these places demonstrates China's territorial sovereignty to India, Xiong noted, adding that legalization of the regions' names is a part of the rule of law.
South Tibet region is located alongside China's southwestern border and India's northeastern border where Sino-India border disputes are centered.
In 1987 vans classic slip on australia , India abruptly announced that it was officially designating the region as "Arunachal Pradesh," but the Chinese government has never recognized India's occupation of the region, nor the legitimacy of the province.
On April 5, China's Foreign Ministry criticized India for provoking a border conflict by inviting the 14th Dalai Lama to the controversial eastern part of the China-India border, an action which the ministry said will "bring no benefits to India."
The Dalai Lama's visit to "Arunachal Pradesh," called South Tibet in China, severely damages China's interests and Sino-Indian relations vans slip on australia , Hua Chunying, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Affairs Ministry, told media at a daily briefing.
"Firmly opposed to that, the Chinese side will lodge stern representations with the Indian side," Hua said. "The Indian side knows well the role of the 14th Dalai Lama. Arranging his activities in this sensitive area where China and India have territorial disputes not only violates India's commitment on Tibet-related issues, but also fuels the border dispute," Hua added.
This is not the first time that the Dalai Lama has visited South Tibet nor referred to the region as Indian territory vans sk8 mid australia , which means he is committed to separating the nation, Zhu Weiqun, head of the Ethnic and Religious Affairs Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, told the Global Times in a previous interview.
SEOUL, South Korea - When South Korea returned home after collecting just one point at last year's World Cup, fans in Seoul heckled the players and offered the local insult of pelting them with candy.
On Sunday evening, just 24 hours after losing a thrilling Asian Cup final 2-1 to Australia in Sydney vans sk8 hi slim australia , South Korea's players arrived back at the same Incheon International Airport to be greeted in a much friendlier fashion after local media called for flowers and not candy - two words that rhyme in Korean - to be thrown.
"It has been tough for the players since the World Cup so this was necessary," coach Uli Stielike said. "The most important point about this tournament is that it has restored Korea's standing in Asia and recovered the Korean spirit ... through this tournament, we can have a new start. We didn't win but we tried our best."
After reaching the final without conceding a goal, South Korea could have taken the trophy back to Seoul for the first time since 1960. For periods in the final in Sydney, the Taeguk Warriors were on top.
After falling behind to a Massimo Luonga goal after 44 minutes, Son Heung-min equalized in the 91st. With a penalty shootout looming, James Troisi scored the winning goal for Australia in extra time.
Few in Seoul would have imagined that the team could have recovered its position in the nation's affections quite so quickly vans sk8 hi australia , but South Korea won plenty of friends at home and elsewhere in Asia.
Former West Germany international Stielike has delivered since being appointed in September to a generally underwhelming response, although at least expectations were low after the poor showing at the World Cup.
In Brazil, the performances were worse than the results suggested. Coach Hong Myung-bo resigned and was replaced by Stielike, who, as well as introducing defensive disciplin.

OCALA, Fla. — Lydia Ko hit the ball only 22 times in a span of 11 hours Friday in the Coates Golf Championship and finished where she started — with a share of the lead, and still a long way from the finish line.
Ko three-putted from 15 feet for bogey in 39-degree weather to finish the rain-delayed second round in the morning. In the afternoon, she made one birdie in six holes to get back to 7-under par and share the lead with Ha Na Jang Air Max Sale Outlet , who played 24 holes on Friday.
None of the 75 players who made the cut finished the third round, which was to resume Saturday morning.

Jang played her entire second round Friday morning Nike Air Max TN Sale Womens , when temperatures eventually climbed into the 50s. She made 15 pars, two birdies and a double bogey for an even-par 72 and the 36-hole lead. Jang was even par through six holes of the third round when play was halted by darkness.
Lexi Thompson was among five players who were one shot out of the lead.
Rain that soaked Golden Ocala on Thursday gave way to a cold front that chilled central Florida. Ko had a 15-foot birdie putt on her last hole of the second round when she returned Friday morning, only to ram the putt about 4 feet by, miss the next one for par and have to make a 3?-foot bogey putt to limit the damage. That gave her a 69.
"I did some 15-footer practice on the putting green before I went, but when I hit it on the course, the green was a touch faster than what I thought it would be Nike Air Max 95 Sale Womens ," Ko said. "Obviously, it's not the best start of the day, but I had a nap and of got over it, and it definitely got much better. Who knows? It might have happened yesterday. But because it happened right first thing in the morning, it might feel worse."
Ko, the No. 1 player in women's golf who is making her 2016 debut Nike Air Max 90 Sale Womens , at least headed off to sleep confident about her game — and her score. She summoned a rules official to discuss whether her ball moved on the sixth green.
"I wasn't sure because it's obviously getting a little dark and with the steepness of the greens, you never know if it does move or not," she said. "I kind of was hovering over it, going back and forth, so I don't know if that action was making it look like.

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN Cheap Air Max 2018 Clearance , Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- After announcing expansion of service into Beijing, capital of China two weeks ago, Brunei is ready to provide more flight connections to Chinese cities and more travel packages to Chinese tourists.
Awang Wardi Bin Hj Mohammad Ali, acting permanent secretary at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, said Thursday that Brunei welcomes more visitors from China and other countries with more convenience and attractions provided.
"We are very glad to have our Chinese friends around. Our tourism department is looking at several more packages for not only the Chinese but also for other markets," he told Xinhua on the sidelines of a press conference of Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), the sultanate's national airline.

KUNMING, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Despite being a county government official, Lyu Nanyi spends much of his day working in a rural village.
Lyu, 36, a Party official in Xundian County in southwest China's Yunnan Province, has been doing his best to tackle poverty in Kedu New Village. He goes door to door to find out about people's lives and comes up with ideas to help them get out of poverty.
"It has been an unforgettable experience Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Online ," Lyu told Xinhua, as China observes its national anti-poverty day on Tuesday. "While helping people live better lives, I have also learned a lot about rural life and improved communication with farmers."
Like Lyu, about 500,000 officials of the Communist Party of China (CPC) have been assigned to complete residencies in more than 100,000 rural villages in China to help tackle poverty. China is committed to bringing all rural people out of poverty by 2020.
Lyu was transferred to the village in 2015 and tasked with poverty relief. In addition to Kedu New Village, he also helps poor villagers in four other villages in Xundian.
According to a Chinese saying Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 Online , if you want to get rich, you must build roads first. So Lyu started by concentrating on building a road for villagers.
"In the past, there was only a mud road, which released dust into the air on sunny days and became muddy when it was rainy," Lyu recalled. "When villagers wanted to build houses, they did not dare to transport materials by truck because the road condition was too difficult. They had to carry everything by hand."
Now that the road has been paved, Lyu said it makes everything easier.
But many residents remain poor. Lyu said that local resident Teng Zhonglin lost his wife to illness years ago. Teng has to support his child Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Online , as well as his father, who suffers from mental illness. The family lives in a mud shack susceptible to rain and wind.
"I tried to help him make more money, such as finding a job in the nearby area," Lyu said. "He also receives subsidies from the government."
Lyu has also helped introduce a flower planting company to Kedu New Village, employing 109 families. Residents are in charge of picking flowers, packaging and spraying pesticide, and each family can make a monthly salary of about 2 Cheap Nike Air Max Online ,000 yuan, in addition to the money from land leased to the company.
Thanks to Lyu's efforts, the families in Kedu are expected to shake off poverty at the end of this year.
Lyu's story shows the CPC's determination to win the battle against poverty, said Yang Lihua, a CPC official in Yunnan.
"Such activities not only help people out of poverty, but also strengthen the grassroots foundation of the CPC," Yang said.
Han Qingxiang Cheap Air Max 2018 Online , a professor at the Party School of the Central Committee of the CPC, said the story shows that the CPC serves the people whole-heartedly.
"The CPC has and will always put people's interests first," Han said.

HOHHOT, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Over half a century ago, Huang Zhigang was a starving orphan in Shanghai. Along with 3,000 other orphans puma suede classic rosa , he only was saved when he was taken to Inner Mongolia.
It is not customary for Mongolians to have a tombstone, but Huang, his brothers and sisters set one up for their foster parents Dowge and Zhang Fengxian in the Xianghuang Banner of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
Every year in July, Huang, who has retired from his government post, and his wife visit the tombstone to honor their late parents, bringing peaches, liquor and flowers.
"If it were not for my parents puma suede classic nere , I would have died of starvation during the three years of difficulties," said Huang, kowtowing before the monument.
From 1959 to 1961, natural disasters and famine claimed staggering death tolls in China. In Shanghai, orphanages were crowded and welfare institutions could not feed the huge numbers of children.
Zhou Enlai, then Chinese Premier, met with Ulanhu, secretary of Communist Party of China Inner Mongolia Committee and decided to send the children to the grasslands where there was enough milk and meat to feed them.
From 1959 puma suede classic italia , over 3,000 orphans from Anhui, Jiangsu, Shanghai and Zhejiang were put on trains and taken 1,400 kilometers to Inner Mongolia.
"We had no names when we left Shanghai. Each of us had a piece cloth sewn on to our clothes with a number on it," said Huang Zhigang, who was five when he was brought to Xianghuang Banner.
The birth rate in Inner Mongolia was low in the 1960s. Many ethnic Mongolian couples wanted to adopt children, said Yun Shubi puma basket heart denim italia , daughter of Ulanhu, who also took part in the mass salvation plan.
"My father said, herdsmen like children, no matter where they come from," Yun told Xinhua, ahead of the 70th anniversary of the autonomous region. Ulanhu promised Zhou that he would make arrangements for the mass transfer.
In general, the government allowed each a couple to take only one child. Many newly-weds and even old grannies rode or walked hundreds of miles to apply to adopt, she said.
Some children in the poorest of health were put in clinics before being adopted puma suede heart satin grigie , Yun said.
THE RED-FACED AUNT
In 1961, Zhang Fengxian was a nurse at a commune in Xianghuang Banner. Six orphans from Shanghai, including Huang Zhigang, were staying at a school next door.
"We were all about the same age, four, or five at the time. We called each other sisters and brothers, and we refused to be separated. When our prospective parents came, we hid so they couldn't find us puma suede heart satin nere ," said Huang.
Zhang liked the children. "She wore khaki clothes, seemed plain and nice. She came from next door to see us, helped us wash our faces and hair. Sometimes she brought candy. We grew to like her," said Huang.
The children called Zhang the "red-faced aunt" - her face was tanned due to exposure to the sun. The four boys and two girls stayed at the school for months, but when winter came they needed to be put in private homes with stoves.
Zhang had no children of her own, and when she offered to adopt all six kids together, the local government agreed because both she and her husband had stable jobs.
Zhang raised them with her husband Dowge, but she passed away in 1991. One of the sons died while serving in the army. The rest went to university and found decent government jobs.
"Mother gave us different names. She named me after the banner puma suede heart satin rosa , my given name meant "steely mind." One of my brothers was named Mao, or 'the kitten' because he was frail. The three others had Mongolian names," said Huang.
One of Huang's sisters Gaowa now works in Beijing. His brother Mao Shiyong, who used to be called kitten, works in Shanghai where his son attends college, but the others have stayed in Inner Mongolia.
Mao Shiyong remembers their mother got exceedingly a.

After the emergency service personnel took the woman
YouTube on Monday premiered videos from 14 musicians as it tried a new cheap nike air max 97 , virtual-only format for the second edition of its music awards.
The giant video-sharing site had searched for a new approach after a mixed reaction to its inaugural event in 2013, which featured a livestreamed show from New York that appeared aimed at creating a new-media rival to the MTV Video Music Awards.
For the second try, YouTube dispensed with the physical world entirely and announced the winners ahead of time and instead used Monday's "awards" day to premiere new videos.
They included "El Perdon," a collaboration between Spanish superstar Enrique Iglesias and reggaeton artist Nicky Jam, as well as a song featuring English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and the electronica-influenced band Rudimental.
But the debuts mostly showcased artists with sizable yet still niche followings, with music videos driven mainly by narratives rather than just performances.
The awards came as YouTube and Google try to expand their reach in the growing industry of streaming through paid subscription services.

KHARTOUM, June 18 (Xinhua) -- With the beginning of the rainy season and accompanying difficulties caused by unpaved roads, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is racing with time to deliver food aid via Sudanese humanitarian corridors to thousands of people affected by war and famine in South Sudan.
The WFP is using three humanitarian corridors opened by the Sudanese government to send food to the people of South Sudan facing the risk of famine.
"The rainy season constitutes the major challenge for us cheap nike air max 1 ," Lemma Bayissa, WFP director in Sudan's North Kordofan State, told Xinhua in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
"That is why we are speeding up, day and night. The rainy season comes with other issues such as road conditions, besides that trucks sometimes take more than their capacity and technical problems might be there in the area," he noted.
"During this time the challenge is represented in fewer trucks nike air max thea ireland , sometimes fewer commercials and less inaccessibility because of the rainy season to areas such as West Kordofan, South Kordofan and other target areas," the director added.
He further explained that WFP resorts to "prepositioning process" before the rainy season begins to secure food supplies at the target areas.
"Before the rainy season we are sending the food to areas like South Kordofan, i.e we pump the food before the rainy season. We are doing the same thing in areas like South Kordofan, like Kharasan and Al Meram," Bayissa said.
He reiterated that there was enough amount of food at the WFP warehouses in EL Obied cheap nike air max thea , the capital city of North Kordofan State.
"Two days ago, we added 15, 600 metric tons of food. That means we have food in Kosti; we have food in Port-Sudan. Food is coming," he said.

It is of the highest importance that the referendum
LONDON Nike Air Max 1 Sale , April 12 (Xinhua) -- Actions by the British government during the European Union referendum led to public mistrust, a committee of MPs said Wednesday in a parliamentary report.
The House of Common's Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee report said any future referendum in Britain should take note of the lessons learned from the way Brexit referendum was handled, including damage to the reputation of the civil service and the lack of preparation for either of the possible outcomes.
The report said that while the then prime minister David Cameron's government did not support a Leave vote, they had a constitutional and public obligation to prepare for both outcomes from the referendum.
"Unfortunately, many of the government's actions in the run-up to the referendum, which were easily avoidable Nike Air Max 90 Sale , appear to have increased public distrust. The use of the machinery of government during the referendum contributed to a perception that the civil service were, in some way, biased," the report said in its conclusions.
The MPs also said the presentation of government reports, particularly those from the Treasury, and the decision to spend 9.3 million pounds (11.7 million U.S. dollars) on sending a leaflet Nike Air Max 95 Sale , advocating a Remain vote, to every home in Britain, were inappropriate and counterproductive for the government.
The committee has recommended that in the event of future referendums, civil servants should be tasked with preparing for both possible outcomes.
"Confusion as to the possible consequences of a referendum result serves only to heighten the potential tensions between referendums and representative democracy and risks increasing the public's disenchantment with politics," added the MPs.
Bernard Jenkin, the Conservative MP who chairs the committee Nike Air Max 2018 Sale , said: "The use of the machinery of government during referendums has a significant effect on public trust and confidence. Referendums need to be designed in such a way as to provide the utmost clarity for parliamentarians, campaigners and, above all, the electorate."
"It is of the highest importance that the referendum process is seen to be fair, by both sides, and that the result is agreed to Nike Air Max Sale , even if not with, by both sides," Jenkin added.
The committee has made recommendations which would improve the legislation and regulatory framework for referendums, as well as for the government, civil service and the country's electoral commission.
In last June's EU referendum, the majority of voters ignored the government recommendation for Britain to remain as a member of the 28-nation bloc. By a margin of 52 to 48 Air Max 1 Sale , the British people voted in favor of leaving the EU.
Last month, Theresa May, who succeeded Cameron as prime minister after the result was declared, started the Brexit process by triggering the Article 50.
Remain supporters have argued that as the referendum gave people a simple remain or leave choice, many people were not aware of the full consequences of a leave vote.
PYONGYANG, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Sunday successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb capable of being carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Air Max 90 Sale , official media announced.
The DPRK Central Television said the test was carried out at the order of top leader Kim Jong Un, who chaired a meeting of the standing committee of the political bureau of the Workers' Party of Korea on the Korean Peninsula situation and decided to conduct the H-bomb test.
The TV report showed still photos of the document signed by Kim ordering the test, which was the sixth nuclear test by the DPRK so far.
The test, which came amid simmering tensions on the Korean Peninsula, runs counter to relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the goal of denuclearizing the peninsula.
After the nuclear test, South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered a pursuit of the "most powerful sanctions" on the DPRK with the international community Air Max 95 Sale , according to the Yonhap news agency.
U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster spoke with his South Korean counterpart, Chung Eui-yong, for about 20 minutes in an emergency phone call about the nuclear test, to discuss the possibility of deploying U.S. military defense devices in South Korea.
Chung said South Korea will also seek new U.N. Security Council sanctions to "completely isolate" the DPRK.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slammed the DPRK's sixth nuclear test Sunday, saying the country's "nuclear and missile development poses a grave and immediate new level of threat" and "seriously undermines peace and security of the region," according to Kyodo news.
"The UN Security Council has strongly criticized North Korea for repeatedly going ahead with ballistic missile launches this year... We find it completely intolerable that North Korea (DPRK) has conducted a nuclear test in such (an environment) Air Max 2018 Sale ," Abe said in the statement.
Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Sunday, expressing firm opposition to and strong condemnation of the nuclear test by the DPRK.
"The DPRK has ignored the international community's widespread opposition and conducted a nuclear test again. The Chinese government expresses resolute objection to and strong condemnation of it," the ministry's statement said.
"We strongly urge the DPRK side to face the firm determination of the international community on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, fully abide by the relevant treaties of the UN Security Council, and stop making wrong doings which will deteriorate the situation and which serves no good to its own interests, and return to the track of solving problems through dialogue Air Max Sale ," the statement said.

ACCRA， March 10 (Xinhua) -- The "Year Abroad" program introduced for Ghanaian students learning Chinese over the years has made them popular in job market after spending time in China and learning more about the Chinese culture， a senior official at the University of Ghana said on Friday.
Dr. Winnand Kofi Azanku， Coordinator of the University's Chinese Department， said students who embarked on the year-long program in China imbibed the Chinese language and culture better as everything and everyone they came across were all in the Chinese language.
He said the program had positive impacts on the students who had benefited from it over the years.
"Those who have already benefited from this program， most of them are already back in Ghana. Some of them are still itching to go. Those who have graduated， they got the opportunity to develop some kind of love for the Chinese people，" he told Xinhua in an interview after he addressed members of the Chinese Students Association (CHISAG) at a seminar in Accra.
He advised students already learning Chinese and those who are yet to come to the university to choose the Chinese language.
"As I speak， there are some Chinese companies in Ghana who always call on me to look for Chinese scholars for them. Jobs are on offer for the taking. So I will advise students to study Chinese. For now the market is not choked yet， so those studying Chinese can easily get jobs，" he said.
After reaching an intermediate-high level of language proficiency， typically after three years of study， students are eligible to attend the Chinese study abroad course in China.
Currently， about 49 students are in different provinces of China going through the exchange program. Some of the students who will be travelling for the one-year abroad program in various Chinese universities in August this year， are already psyched up for the course.
"We will be going to China in August and I intend to speak more fluently and bring more business opportunities to this country and also have links with the Chinese people，" a student Kumah Michael told Xinhua.
Another student， Keith Cleland， said everybody who went and came back from the program， came out with a totally different experience.
"Opportunities are endless for you because once you have the grasp of the language and a good in-depth knowledge of their culture， you are hot cake on the market of the Chinese people. So I am excited and I am looking forward to a different experience， a different culture and a different language altogether， over the next year，" he said.
For Shevonna Sophie Ansah， a linguist student， the year abroad program looks very interesting and she hopes to learn a lot， develop her intonation more， and speak fluently like a native speaker.
"But Inasmuch as I am going to study Chinese more， I want to associate and know more about their culture because we don't have much exposure here，" she said.
The president of CHISAG， Joseph Koba， appealed to the Chinese embassy， the Confucius Institute and other institutions to increase the number of scholarship opportunities available for Chinese students at the university.
