Ghana’s ex-president Jerry John Rawling passed away today. Lets mourn a great leader: Here’s a tidbit of his memorial:
Cheikh Anta Diop gets a statue for giving hard-To-Read Africans some dignity in their own history. Admit it, Africans HATE to read …everything is about witchcraft with music 🤩 and then blames everyone else, including Europe and America for their own ineptitude.
Bad leadership creates incessant wars, nothing less. Those who want peace and love, live in harmony with nature. Those who want peace and love strive to make peace and love work in their communities. But those who create chaos die of wanting peace and love, even by their graveyards.
In Ghana, the media does not do their due diligence, as a co-balance-of-power system, so their leaders work alone, with a type of centrism that causes them to look inefficient. For example, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah’s name sounds like his dad is Nkrumah but is he? No.
So NDC, the opposition party to Akufo-Addo’s administration accuses him of stealing money through his cousins … 😂
Akufo-Addo’s administration hit back with shaky evidence that monies (siphoned …?) were used to build factories in One District One Factory policy.
Ghana’s politics is typically boring and does not create the usual buzz of excitement and drama that US politics does. So viewing is low and interest is low. That’s what plagues us, as bloggers. For some of us, Ghana remains a poorly managed, poverty-ridden dangerous country with high risks for diseases, with theft problems, just like its neighbor, Nigeria.
Ghana media does not speak English properly …. and won’t budge from reading Twi in international affairs… In Ghanaian politics local is international and international is, regrettably, local. Ghanaian politicians practically LOATH change. They’d rather beg than invent modernistically, to solve their economic problems. Hygiene, law & order is chaotic. Ecowas Regional road network is stingily constructed. This leaves a dangerously crude, cheaply-built, and incomplete road for drivers to contend with.
