When NPP lost the 2008 elections, a group of NDC supporters,numbering 14 including matured men and women,largely from the suburb of Tutuka in obuasi,designed a wooden effigy of an elephant, put it on a truck and paraded it throughout the major streets of the city,while lashing the effigy with wire cables.
In the evening,they said the elephant had died so they laid the effigy in state with wake-keeping amidst blaring music,dancing and drinking; and went and buried the effigy the following morning.
Now,by the time we were going to the polls in 2012,all those who visibly spearheaded that act had died through mysterious circumstances, while some of those who actively cheered,have either gone mad and presently walking naked on the streets of Obuasi,with others down with stroke and other debilitating plaques.
Indeed, as Ghanaians, and for the matter,Africans, we have specific cultural norms which dictates our behavior and how to relate to each-other. These principles are not captured in our statutes,but rather,they are hidden in the laws of nature. Indeed,this is what KARMA is all about.
And yesterday at the NDC campaign manifesto launch at the sunyani coronation park, I witnessed a spectacle which was similar to the Obuasi one I have narrated above. And this was at the full glare of John Mahama and all the NDC top hierarchy.
And like I have always maintained, I know the calibre of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, when it comes to respect for others,even if it happen to be adversaries. He therefore will never sit aloof for such act of abject despicably despicable despicability to be displayed at an NPP function, be it public or private.
Indeed,we are in a contest for the people’s mandate to serve,and this certainly does not warrant such antics of abject lunatically lunatic lunacy. The contest must rather be about preferring of cogent policy alternatives,tailored to the needs of the people, delivered in simple language,and with high sense of decently decent decency.
Brazen display of total madness and notorious buffoonery has no place in civilized societies where leadership puts premium on the well-being of the masses,and responsibility in political officialdom is strictly upheld.
Ghana is not a jungle so the members of Ghana’s only “CONGRESS” which incidentally means “a colony of BABOONS”, should do away with their animalistically animalistical animalistic animals’ characteristically characteristic character characteristics,and learn to behave as humans.
INDEED,POLITICS ISN’T DIRTY; IT IS DIRTY CHARACTERS THAT RATHER MAKE IT SO.
