awam

[Ghana]

Fake. This word is associated with deceit, bullshit, conspiracy, cheating or profiteering. It has a political history that dates back to January 1948, in Ghana's quest for colonial freedom, when a group of foreign traders called the Association of West African Merchants(AWAM), who specialized in European imports and cocoa buying, were boycotted due to the very high prices they sold their goods and the dubious creation of scarcity they employed leading to their disbandment and formation of the Ghana Cocoa Marketing Board(GCMB).
