The experiences, practices and focus of the Ghanaian student movement make for a sad reflection, states this commentary on the website of the Centre for Civil Society at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. " The flame of student struggle which was set burning and handed down to successive generations of Ghanaian student leaders began dimming from the early 1990s, got worse in the late 1990s, and in the year 2005 I can state without fear of contradiction that this flame has finally gone off." In this context there is an urgent need for a radical change in the top-down organizational structure of the Ghanaian student movement as it exists today, the article concludes.
