It is so disheartening listening to politicians like the Minority Leader in Ghana's Parliament, the Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, sometimes. Why do such obviously well-educated and highly-intelligent individuals, insist on playing tribal politics - in 21st Century Africa?

Do they not realise that essentially, we are all one people? It wouldn't surprise me one bit, dear reader, if it emerged, through nationwide research some day, that we share DNA that basically makes us one people. When will these bloody tribal-supremacist clots, finally understand that this is a unitary state of diverse-ethnicity - in which no one tribe is superior or inferior to the other?

The truth of the matter, is that the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus of this world, don't want ordinary Ghanaians to cotton on to the fact that Ghana is a nation that is an unjust society - divided into two: the wealthy "haves" (the elite rip-off merchants who now own virtually all of our country - acquired through abuse of power and corruption!) and the struggling majority, the "have-nots", the Mmoburowaas of Nkrumah's Ghana.

The Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus are scared stiff that the "haves" (the Atiyieas) will permanently lose their grip on power, and miss the opportunity to amass yet more wealth, which controlling the sharing of the national cake, when they are in power, gives them.

So to ensure a set number of followers, sufficient to give them victory in the next elections in 2012, they must make ordinary Akans feel that politics in Ghana, is about ensuring tribal dominance. What antediluvian rubbish.

Well, the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus will have a rude awakening soon, when they discover that ordinary Akans actually know and understand perfectly that we have a system underpinned by elite rip-off. They also don't care where those ordinary fellow citizens they interact with, on a daily basis, hail from.

They are smart enough to know that when the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus were in power, from January 2001 to January 2009, they engaged in unprecedented asset-stripping - transferring most of the Ghanaian nation-state's accumulated wealth, acquired over the years through the blood, sweat and tears of ordinary people, to: themselves; some of their family members; their friends and sundry local and foreign fronts - hiding assets for them in special purpose offshore entities.

Was the attempt to railroad the fraudulent sale and purchase agreement for VALCO, to a non-existent company (grandly called International Aluminium Partners), purported to be jointly-owned by the Norwegian-headquartered Norske Hydro - said to be the world's fourth largest integrated aluminium company - and the mining conglomerate, VALE of Brazil (something they both strenuously denied!), through Parliament, not masterminded by that selfsame tribalistic hypocrite - on behalf of those super-rogues,the tribal-supremacist and amoral Kufuor & Co., I ask, dear reader?

As we speak, how remorseful are some of those shameless individuals (outwardly respectable in appearance - but in reality many of them nothing more than swindlers and thieves), now in court, and completely ignoring the fact that the original owners of the parcel of land that the foreign ministry's International Students Hostel was built on (which was divvied up and given out to them for peanuts), really ought to have been offered the first option of purchasing that land?

Was that land not instead illegally parcelled out to themselves, some family members of the tribal-supremacist cabal, which controlled the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regime between January 2001 and January 2009, as well as the wealthy and well-connected cronies of the perfidious Kufuor & Co. - with Lady Luck smiling on all of them, as a result of the most egregious of examples, of abuse of office, patronage-gone-mad and unparalleled corruption?

The Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus will soon discover, that far from being fools, ordinary Akans, like their compatriots from other ethnic backgrounds, are far smarter than they thought and aren't fools at all - when the next Flt. Lt. Jerry Rawlings steps in to restore order: when the party of the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus, dominated by a small band of ruthless tribal-supremacist swindlers and thieves, disturb the peace and destroy the stability of our homeland Ghana.

They must not think for one moment that they can toy with the destiny of our nation and its people and get away with it. They are sowing the wind with the endless dissimulation of their "Enkoyie" propaganda, and will reap the whirlwind - when the next Flt. Lt. Jerry Rawlings strikes to restore order, were the party of the Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsus, to unleash widespread violence, leading to chaos and death in Ghana, during the December 2012 elections, and its immediate aftermath. A word to the wise...
