Ohemaa, some of us find it difficult to understand your continued humouring of this semi-literate chap. Hmmm, Ghana - ayeasem oo!
It is entirely fitting and proper that he continues to languish in the backwaters of US education - the dreadful community college system: that is theoretically supposed to provide access to tertiary education for the mostly disadvantaged students who attend them.
As regards his constant references to Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of blessed memory, in the most derogatory of fashions possible, let me just make a small point, to counter some of this tiresome (taflatse!) buffoon's drivel.
The idea that history can be rewritten to sanitise the image of the quislings in our history who collaborated with the British colonialists for purely selfish reasons, is laughable - and no serious student of history ought to take this pitiful individual seriously in the slightest, in that regard.
The verdict of history, unlike many in the Ghanaian media landscape, who have sold their consciences to the highest bidders, can neither be bought nor influenced with the gift of sinecures in cushy jobs in Ghana's overseas diplomatic missions - which is where presumably this person, this (taflatse!) semi-literate, thinks he is soon destined for: when his long-cherished dream becomes a reality in 2009.
Let him continue to delude himself. He will have a rude awakening from his dreams after the polls close on election day, this December!Kwame Nkrumah is a giant of 20th century history - and has a secure place in the Pantheon of humankind.
He will be remembered till the very end of time by Africans: both at home and in the diaspora - long after the quislings that that apology of a university lecturer fawns on, have sunk into oblivion: and been forgotten. Kwame Nkrumah was a political genius who dwarfed all his contemporaries.
Any historian who knows the dictatorial manner in which Dr.J.B.Danquah and Ofori-Atta 1 brutally oppressed non-Akims and ordinary Akims, with the active help of the then British colonial district commissioner Jones, will scoff at the attempt by his political progeny to paint Dr. Danquah as a believer in democracy.
At one point in time, during the colonial era ( March 14, 1956), Dr. Danquah and Ofori-Atta 11 told a visiting British parliamentary delegation that Akim Abuakwa would secede from the Gold Coast. if the British did not show understanding for their position - that a multi-party democracy based on universal adult franchise, was unsuitable for the people of the Gold Coast.
(Incidentally, I strongly recommend that you read pages 48 to 76 of that very fascinating book: "Fight Back - A response to Anti-Nkrumah provocations" which is published by the socialist forum of Ghana [SFG], to see the true nature of that quisling and traitor to ordinary Ghanaians and their homeland Ghana, Dr. J.B.Danquah - whose political progeny seek to foist on Nkrumah's Ghana, as a national hero: and champion of democracy and freedom!)
In their view: "Party politics was an alien political form" that had "created civil strife and violent dissension between father and son." It is also important to note that both Dr. Danwuah and Dr. K.A. Busia shared the English philosopher Edmund Burke's preference for rule by a preordained elite.
That is why some of their followers actively helped in the 1958 coup plot to overthrow Nkrumah's regime - after it had been in power for only one year, as the government of an independent African nation-state: which was also a fully-functioning multi-party democracy.
They had the effrontery, in plotting to overthrow the democratically elected regime of Nkrumah in 1958, to completely disregard the wishes of the majority of Ghanaian who had cast their votes and elected a government of their choice, in free and fair elections.
The CPP won the 1956 elections that preceded our independence in 1957, with a thumping parliamentary majority of 40 (including the support of one independent member of parliament) - increasing its seats too, to 71, in the process!
Incredibly, most of those quislings were happily working for financial compensation, for foreign intelligence agencies, from the West throughout their years in active politics - those greedy, selfish and shameless traitors to the black race!
Their progeny in power today, are of the same ilk: for, today's quislings are busy organising fire-sales of Ghana's assets to foreign carpetbaggers - for 10 per cent kickbacks through opaque offshore shell companies: if the bush telegraph is to be believed!
They are true lackeys of neo-colonialism, indeed: forever toadying to foreign carpetbaggers for 10 per cent kickbacks - at mother Ghana's expense!
Ohemaa, the point about the letter from that distinguished officer and gentleman, the retired chief of the defence staff (CDS) Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah, is that it illustrates perfectly, the frustration that a majority of decent-minded ordinary Ghanaians feel, about the unfathomable greed of our ruling elite - who have sold off vast tracts of government-owned land: as part of their secret agenda of ripping mother Ghana off, by stealth.
Yet, it is land that ultimately belongs to the Ga Dangbe people: who ought to have title to such lands restored to them - if the Ghanaian nation-state no longer wants them for the purpose they were originally acquired. Your guess is as good as mine what would have happened to such parcels of land, if those same plots of land had been located elsewhere, in our homeland Ghana!
That is what riles the many honest and fair-minded Ghanaians, about this regime.They despair at the egregious harm being done to our country, by the greediest and most dishonest of the few tribal supremacists (our local version of the odious white supremacists of the Western world - who think all blacks and other people of colour are subhuman - those (taflatse!)bloody racists and imbeciles!) who dominate the ruling party so completely.
As we speak, land belonging to some of the most critical state research institutions are being sold off to politically well-connected private-sector real estate developers - yet, our research institutions are vital state entities: which we must resource properly if we are to fight the debilitating effects of global climate change, successfully.
Does the greed of the dishonest ones amongst our rulers have no bounds at all, I ask, Ohemaa? Hmmm, Ghana - asem ebabsa debi ankasa! May God bless and protect our homeland Ghana always. Long live freedom! Long live Ghana!
