Do those independent-minded and patriotic Ghanaians, in whose view, charging that nouveau riche philistine and tribal-supremacist politician, Kennedy Adjapong, with treason, genocide and terrorism, amounted to "crass stupidity" (to quote one such Ghanaian), not have a point after all, one wonders?
Why trivialise a serious crime against humankind, such as genocide, by
charging him with it, when in saying what he did, that bloody fool had
not actually killed a single soul - let alone hundreds of thousands of
Ga Dangbes and Ewes, in an orgy of ethnic cleansing by his party
members, financed and organised by him, I ask?
And if he did not in fact also take part in a conspiracy with others,
seeking the overthrow of the elected government of the day, which he
also agreed he would finance, why charge him for treason, too?
And why terrorism - when what they were confronted with, was a man
whose utterances were liable to cause fear and panic, amongst a section
of the general public?
It was daft and politically inept to do so, on the part of the faceless
(and power-drunk) individuals, behind this classic example of the
abuse of the legal system for political ends.
One's rather surprised too, at those who feel outraged by ex-President
Kufuor's "sledgehammer" remarks, when he commented openly on Kennedy
Adjapong's nation-wrecking and vituperative verbiage.
What else did they expect from that quarter, dear reader? Has it escaped
them, that the hypocritical Kufuor too, is himself an arch
Have they forgotten so soon that there were many discerning and
independent-minded Ghanaians, who said at the time, that he saw his
election to power as president of our homeland Ghana, as a golden
opportunity, for the tribal-supremacist cabal that dominated the New
Patriotic Party (NPP) regime he led for eight long years, to use the
entire machinery of state to promote their tribal Chieftain as the
de facto leader of a state-within-a-state, and monarch of Nkrumah's
Indeed many patriotic individuals say that he is actually cast in the
same mould as Kennedy Adjapong - only a tad more diplomatic
(hypocritical's the word one ought to use, perhaps) than that
tribalistic blackguard: as are many of their confounded party's leading
lights. That is why they must be prevented from fragmenting our country
further - by keeping them away from the Osu Castle and the Flagstaff
House, in the December 2012 elections. A word to the wise...
