Lange, Kofi Ron

About the translator: Kofi Ron Lange’s long association with Ghana began in 1968 when he went there as an SVD seminarian. Ordained by Bishop Peter Kwasi Sarpong in 1971, he has worked as a secondary school teacher, chaplain, spiritual director, founder/director of Divine Word Language Centre, and is presently teaching language and culture learning at the Tamale Institute of Cross Cultural Studies. His longstanding interest in African oral literature, especially proverbs, has inspired the publication of five books of Ghanaian proverbs.
