I’ll serve Ghana – New SC judge Mensah Bonsu

I simply do not understand why Ghanaians are fond of taking the 'colonial' names that were brought to us by the British.We have John Kuffuor,John Mahama,John Rawlings,John Evans Atta-Mills, and this Supreme Court judge is called Joy Henrietta.Are we not proud to be identified as Africans by having wholly african names or what? No British official took a ghanaian name during and after decades of colonization yet ghanaians keep using english names as if we are english.We do not see ourselves as Africans but rather proud of cherishing and upholding the relics of British colonialism. We are Ghanaians and not British.We are Africans and we must be proud of our origins and identities.I hope those who have clad themselves with colonials names will not see themselves as more superior and civilized than those who have not. We had Kwame Nkrumah,Kofi Annan,Kofi Abrefa Busia,Nii Amaa Ollenu.I doff my hat to them .
