Typical - a semi-literate tribal supremacist reads something he does not quiet understand: and quickly jumps to all the wrong conclusions! Hmmm, Ghana - eyeasem oo! One wonders if this poor fellow actually understands sarcasm when he comes across it - since he seems to be oblivious of Harold Macmillan's wry sense of humour? (http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/artikel.php?ID=151381.)
Perhaps, as usual, this ill-informed man, wants to rush where angels fear to tread? Harold Macmillan was merely observing, from the behaviour of the quislings Dr. J.B. Danquah and Dr. K. A. Busia (who were forever petitioning the colonial office not to grant us independence because we were not "ready"), that we were a divided people.
Yes, we were a divided people - divided by tribal supremacists like Danquah and Busia: who simply felt that the Akan pre-colonial feudal ruling elites had to replace the British colonialists at all costs: because they were born to rule their fellow human beings, till kingdom come, and went to great lengths to achieve their goal.
Perhaps this ill-informed buffoon does not understand that the Western powers saw Nkrumah as the greatest threat to their continuing plunder of Africa - because he was raising the consciousness of Africans and therefore had to be removed (to paraphrase the then British High Commissioner to Ghana, A.W. Snelling, in a dispatch to the British secret services, on 16th September, 1961)?
Just why did he think they worked so hard, using traitors to Africa, like Danguah and Busia, to achieve their ends?
Let him actually read the declassified C.I.A., US State Department and British secret services documents, detailing the events in our country, from that period, to understand precisely what Macmillan and Co. actually thought of Nkrumah (whose intellect their admired and also feared!) and those dispicable pro-Western quislings (whom they despised for their "pathetic" pro-Western views!) he so worships.
No amount of re-writing of our history by this semi-literate misanthrope will change Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's place in the Pantheon of the greatest figures of 20th century history.
He will be remembered by future generations of Africans, long after Danquah and Busia have sunk into oblivion and been forgotten - and the reason is simple: he championed the cause of ordinary people: who are are always on the right side of history!
Has it ever struck this "re-writer" of history that the Sir Alan Lennox Boyds of this world had good reason to despise Danquah? The reason lies in his championing the cause of the murderers of Odikro Akyea Mensah - who was murdered to provide the departed tribal supremacist and tyrant Ofori Atta 1, with company: in his final to journey to meet with his ancestors.
Finally, if he really wants classic examples of those Africans who toadied to the British, let him look at the relationship between district commissioner Jones and Danquah and Co, for a study in the abuse of the British indirect rule colonial system, by ruthless self-seekers!
Hmmm, Ghana - eayeasem oo. Onipayi, wu enti brofu - ensu wu enmua wa nu. Haba! May God bless and protect our homeland Ghana, always. Long live freedom! Long live Ghana!
