Letter From The President: Woe to those causing financial losses

Fri, 22 Apr 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, it is with a heavy (and somewhat guilty heart) that I sit to write this letter. You know, former deputy Finance Minister, Victor Melorsey, died early this week. He hasn?t been in good health for a couple of years now and his legal troubles seem to have compounded his health problems culminating in his sudden death. My condolences go to members of his family, his friends, his concubines, his former cellmates and members of his party.

I truly sympathise with them even though I know that most of them are blaming me for his death. If it is any consolation at all, I will like those pointing fingers at me to know that I have not had a decent meal since I heard of his death. And yes, I can?t help but feel some guilt for his death. I agree that I hounded an unhealthy man for causing financial loss to the state. I appointed a judge who owed me a debt of immense gratitude to sit on his case. To show his appreciation for my generosity in appointing him to the Supreme Court, the judge, the late Dixon Nixon, sent Mr. Melorsey to jail.
