How refreshing to find a well-meaning and patriotic middle class Ghanaian who is unafraid to speak the truth, when our nation is imperilled. Bravo, Professor Kwame Karikari! (www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/artikel.php?ID=150479)
One of the curses of our country is that the vast majority of good and decent-minded people prefer to remain silent - whiles the unprincipled "My-party-my-tribe-right-or-wrong" myrmidons go about their sycophantic and blinkered verbal and moral contortions, subjecting truth to the most brutal of onslaughts, on a daily basis.
Ghana's middle classes are the most cowardly middle class anywhere on the planet Earth - and right from Nkrumah's time, they have watched silently as the unprincipled and power-hungry politicians amongst the various post-independence regimes have behaved with impunity. Shame on them!
Let them redeem themselves for once - by speaking up against the perfidy of the few ruthless and powerful tribal supremacists who unfortunately now dominate today's ruling party so completely: those amoral, shameless and lying thieves, whose greed knows no bounds.
They are a ruthless lot who are even prepared to see our country burn, rather than lose power in an election: and be held accountable for their abuse of power and illegal acquisition of wealth - through the numerous opaque offshore entities they have set up to hide their "kickback-loot".
Some of them even have the effrontery to say that Ghana has not signed up to the OECD convention: and will not do so under this regime - because it is against our culture. What barefaced cheek!
Hmmm, Ghana - ayeasem oo: asem ebaba debi ankasa! May God bless and protect our homeland Ghana, always. Long live freedom! Long live Ghana!
