Stephen Nana Ato Arthur (Ghana)
Stephen Nana Ato Arthur, born in 1961, has been a KAAD-scholar twice and between the two scholarships was not only a period of 12 years but also a very successful political career that has reached a peak in 2012: On 08.12.2012, KAAD got the news that he has won the constituency KEEA as a candidate for Parliament. He will therefore be the first alumnus of KAAD as a member of parliament in an African country.
