The contents of Alban Bagbin’s bin-bag (1)

Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin,once again, has been shooting from the hip, like nobody’s business, following the second press conference held on 5th September,2010 by the opposition (NPP) to expose the inherent ‘kululus’ of the STX-GOG housing deal. And rather strangely, as I monitor the media these days, I have come to realize how some sections of our security agencies are falling over one another to shower praises on the Minister for Works, Housing and Water resources, as if he is going to pay for these ‘Kweku Ananse’ houses for them with monies from his own pockets

Breaking the virginity of a sex-worker

In Ghana today, if you are a man who used to be an official of the erstwhile Kufuor administration and happens to be ‘careless’ enough to incur the wrath of the likes of Kwabena Adjei, Nii Lantey Vanderpuije, fooled-soldiers and the 10 regional chairmen of the NDC, pressure could be brought on the Attorney General to, even, charge you for ‘breaking’ the virginity of a very well-experienced female sex-worker!!!

Say: I Am Sorry, Dr. Tony Aidoo

It is believed that mummy is mostly at the receiving end when daddy is provoked by his boss, likewise children are at the receiving point when mummy is provoked by daddy and may be the dog receives it also from the children. I was listening to my favorite Alhaji and Alhaji on radio gold when Tony Aidoo dropped the bomb. Claiming that, only mad people speak in tongues

Romance, love and betrayal: Stealth lover

He went looking for her but his highflying beauty with astounding curves was gone. She left with Jim the hunk with the looks of a pop icon. She escaped to a pad out of town. It was an only cure for her heartaches. Stephen had pressed his own self-destruction button. He knew one thing for sure their relationship was on edge. In fact, it is irretrievably broken. She was a goner and left him empty as before. It was his fault. The temptress came flashing her boobs and he fell for it

Anita de Souza, the modern day Sapphira and Jezebel

If you don’t have some raffia palm, you cannot weave a basket. It was one Ashanti King who said, “se berebere amma amanee nso amma”. It is only a weak man whose wife finds pleasure in another man. It is also true that a castrated man shudders at the sight of a woman. Who would dispute the fact that an upstart whose umbilical cord is not yet cut should not chew meat before he grows teeth? “Se wonnim owuo a hwe nna”. Translated literally, it means if you don’t know how death is like, look at sleep

A declaration of ‘judicial-genocide’ (2)

There is this talk that the president has somehow sought to distance himself from Kwabena Adjei’s dim-witted pronouncements and reiterated his faith in the judiciary so the issue must be allowed to die. Here, my question to those advancing such an argument is simply this; will any president ever come out to publicly tell the nation when some members within his party are habouring any ill-intentions against members of the judiciary?

A declaration of ‘Judicial-Genocide’ (1)

There is this popular Fante adage that says; ‘asem a onnye dew no, wonnfa nnko ahenfie’, to wit; one does not have to take a bad complaint to the chief’s palace for arbitration. Before the Europeans landed on our shores with their form of governance and other ways of live, we Africans, had a well acceptable way of dealing with conflicts and petty-squabbles alike

Mills’ State of Nature agenda for Ghanaians

The recent brouhaha over the acquittal by an Accra High Court of Kwadwo Mpiani and Wireko Brobbey has brought out the worst in the NDC. Comments and utterances by top members of the party have convinced me beyond all reasonable doubts that the party is made up of a mob or human beings being kept in a ‘political zoo’ who are waiting to vent their spleen on the unsuspecting public
