Brigadier General (Brig Gen) Daniel Kwadjo Frimpong (Rtd), has launched his fourth book titled “WEST TO EAST: MY EAST AFRICAN SOJOURNS”, a 131-page 17 Chapters book, with a renewed clarion call for all to put together their experiences; “… it is not easy but it is rewarding”.

General Frimpong has in recent times, also served in Kenya as the Chief Executive Officer for the African Peace Support Trainers Association, and it is a combination of all these experiences during his tours of duty, that he has put together into this book.
