The Political Prostitution Of Konadu ( Akwele Wang U )

By Kwadwo Poku







Those of us who consider ourselves to be politically astute have known Junior Jesus


to be a man who hungers and thirst not for righteousness, but for dictatorial power.


You don't have to convert water to wine to know this truth. Just a little exercise


of perspicacity will suffice in this righteous endeavor. When he left office in


2000, he tried dictating from the sidelines by summoning Kufuor to a series of


meetings, all to no avail. so he rained insults. Fast forward to 2008. Mills becomes


President and will not acquiesce to his buffoonery, so what is Rawlings the menace


to society to do? He rains insults, coupled with a relentless pursuit of pillaging


his Presidency. Now, this pesky man has come to terms of knowing he can't dictate by


proxy, so he's chosen to politically prostitute Akwele Wang U (his wife) to become


the next president. "Tofia Kwa"





About a couple of weeks ago, sitting agglutinated to my PC, what I saw on the


Friends Of Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings (FONKAR) web site was not a Kodak moment but


an eyesore, to say the least. At first blush I thought she was auditioning for an


African movie slot, but after gazing steadily with my lens on, what I saw was a


bastardization of the highest office in the Republic of Ghana. An elderly woman


approaching senior citizenship, foisting her bankye stick of a body into a seeming


impossible youthful package, for political market! What an eyesore. Folks as a

passionate proponent of democratic tenets, I would have let this slide, but what


really called for the authorization of this article is the subterfuge presentation


of Akwele Wang U's Presidential bid. We were made to believe the cultic moron and


his wife were unbeknownst to the launching of the web site. That is a fish story,


and it's to be preserved and told to their unborn grandchildren. If you've visited


the site, one thing should arouse your suspicion, that is, all of the 14 slides of


pictures are current. Not a single solitary one was delved from the archives.


Therefore Akwele Wang U purposefully posed for the camera pro hac vice (for this


occasion only).





FONKAR would have resulted in using antiquated pictures for the site, had the


partners in crime not been at the helm of affairs. One more thing of great import is


the fact that the site was launched at the time the couple were away for the Surinam


Independence celebrations, just to give credence to their stratagem. Does this sound


familiar? Do you recall of the whereabouts of the cultic moron when their Ridge


residence was ablaze? Folks the modus operandi of these corruption infested


political has-beens, are so predictable. To tell you the truth, I had been


fructified with this article since the launching of the web site but I decided to


have a wait period to see if they will dash to the podium, denounce the FONKAR


organization and throw their support on Mills leadership or simply release a


statement through a spokes person, distancing themselves from FONKAR. Because on

balance, that is the right thing to do. But you see, I waited in vain. I also


expected the upper echelons of the NDC to come out with some press release at least,


but their silence is indicative of their fear of the toothless dog who prides


himself as the titular head of their party.





Before I deal with this pest in the next paragraph, let me parenthetically remind


you of the political/tribal tensions that went unchecked and the results they


yielded in Rwanda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Sudan, Ivory Coast and you can add more


to the list. I don't want to sound like a prophet of doom, but there is this


traditional maxim which says; if you don't know the face of death, look at a


sleeping person. What happened in these countries should teach us a lesson. This


criminal, who admitted putting to death innocent lives in a BBC interview with Zeina


Badawi in 2005 is setting the stage for the demise of our democracy and he is doing


so as a result of his voracious appetite for dictatorial power. He doesn't have the


nation at heart, let alone his party, so he pimps Akwele Wang U to challenge Mills


for the flagbearership of their party, whiles caring less about the potential


disintegration of the NDC. From day one this couple have surreptitiously


orchestrated the pillaging of the structures that holds Mills presidency, and they


are at the moment working the delegates by making Mills health an issue.





Rawlings let me tell you something, don't think you are invincible. You are what you

are today because of the stupidity of some Ghanaians and the incompetence of our


lawmakers who are ignorant of the powers the wield as a legislative body. A serial


killer like you, who's been favored by history and the magnanimity of Ghanaians,


could at least reciprocate the favor by not meddling in the political currency of


this age, but rather you have become a nuisance to your party and an embarrassment


to statesmanship. You are so bent on approximating your eczema tattooed cross breed


skin to the propinquity of the Presidency so much that it has culminated to the


political prostitution of your wife. And that begs the question HOW LOW WILL THE


UNREPENTANT WASTREL GO? Instead of seducing your worshippers by prostituting Akwele


Wang U ( whose back side could benefit from your bloated stomach should you decide


to deflate it), why not pick an AK-47 and tell us you and your family are entitled


to become the perpetual leaders of our Republic. What a buffoon this mental midget


is. Your disloyalty to Mills leadership is born out of greed, lunacy and your


ownership of the Ewe vote. So sad that the entire Volta region have allowed


themselves to be used and abused by your duplicitous ways. Mills on the other hand


has himself to blame. Instead of standing toe to toe to your stupidity by simply


telling you to go to blazes, he continues to dance to your dunce.





Back in my second cycle institution years at Accra Academy, I overhead a junior


define a fool as HE WHO KNOWS NOUGHT AND KNOWS NOUGHT THAT HE KNOWS NOUGHT. That is


descriptive of this twerp. He is ignorant of his foolishness. He doesn't know he is

a political charlatan. He reads about the Cuban Revolution and inflates his deluded


mind with the notion that without him Ghanaians can't breathe. Oh Ghanaians, we have


forgotten so soon. In the mid 80's when asked to return the nation to constitutional


rule, he said and I quote; ' TO WHOM DO I HAND OVER ' meaning he was the only man


qualified and groomed to lead the nation. And he still holds that idiosyncratic


mannerism of entitlement view today. If not, can any of his worshippers explain why


a supposedly founder of a party, help his hand picked flag bearer win an election,


only to be back stabbing him from scratch? This is political assassination period,


and it is only a man devoid of common sense, will dare stage this political theatre.


I love Ghana very much and I am passionate about our new found democracy. Therefore


with relentless pursuit, anyone who stands as an impediment or an anathema to our


democracy, I will expose. The temperature of the political/tribal tensions in Ghana


is heating up, one man is responsible and he is doing so by fanning the flames of


divisiveness. The question is; WILL WE AS A NATION LET HIM? A word to the wise is


enough As the new year approaches, my prayer is that, God in his mercies should


open our eyes of understanding and endow us with the gift of sagacity. May he bless


us and make us a blessing. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
