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.

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

Is Mills a Principled President? No, Never!

Charity, they say, begins at home. The Golden Rule also states that: “Do unto others what you expect others to do unto you”. The President is the father of the entire nation.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo Carries Everyone Along

A great tide in history flows, and as it flows, it brings back great memories; - memories of the contradictory sides to a great man who can dance to different tunes of music at different times. I am referring to the Great Man of Destiny, an icon, a polyglot and a man, who many believe can pull the country out of its present doldrums and comatose state. The person I am referring to is none other than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
