Don't Dance To War Songs


By A Special Correspondent

With an eye set for a [possible] "Nobel Peace Prize" for consistently utilizing Non-Violent (PEACEFUL) methods in fighting powerful yet, cowardly and unjust, as well as repressive governments and "terrorizing institutions", and for his endless peace efforts in Ghana, former Ghanaian-American Los Angeles Mayoral Candidate-turned 2004 CPP Parliamentary Candidate for Nhyiaeso Constituency - a Great Grandson of Adonteng Puduo Royals and Asante War Generals from Bamang, near the Kente weaving Town of Bonwire, and Kumasi Adonteng Chiefs, has [publicly] cautioned Ghanaians from all walks of life, ethnic group, tribe or religious affiliation, (NOT) to dance to "War Drums" - reminding the Nation that Ghana cannot afford to bear the similar pain and suffering that Civil Wars inflicted upon the people of Rwanda, Burundi, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Congo, etc.

"Osagyefo" Kwame Mayor blamed the AFRC and PNDC regimes for "planting the seeds of tribalism" of which Ghanaians of every ethnic group and tribe today are "Collective Victims !!!" - whether Asantes, Ewes, Gas, Dagombas, Akyems, Fantes, Brongs, Mamprusis, Frafras or Nzemas, to mention but a few.

" His Excellency, President John Agyekum Kuffuor served under the very Military regime (PNDC) that witnessed Soldiers terrorizing Kumasi residents - whether they were innocent Gas, innocent Ewes, innocent Asantes, innocent Dagombas, innocent Fantes, innocent Brongs, innocent Akyems, innocent Kwahus - (in a nutshell), innocent Ghanaians from every ethnic group and tribe were victimized in Kumasi and throughout Ghana !!!.

Quoting former Military Junta Leader and former President, Jerry John Rawlings' alleged statement in the past that even the "devil deserves his due", the CPP activist, who has made gigantic political strides in Ghana's politics by equally and objectively criticising both His Excellency, President John Agyekum Kuffuor and former President Jerry John Rawlings, said he does [not] believe that the former President personally had any motive to massacre Kumasi residents and neither does he believe that Mr. Rawlings personally harboured any plot to target Kumasi residents for the sole purpose of killing, maiming and torturing the "multi-ethnic residents" of Kumasi.

However, the "Mayor" blames the leadership of AFRC and PNDC regimes for not taking immediate and appropriate steps to prevent Soldiers and certain "avowed tribalists" from inflicting pain and suffering on [all] Ghanaians - including Kumasi residents.

" In fairness, Mr. Rawlings alone should [not] be made to shoulder all the guilt of unusual Human Rights abuses in Ghana under AFRC / PNDC Regimes, when Major (Rtd) Boakye Djan and his AFRC Colleagues are still responsible for the unjust and cowardly execution of Real Admiral Amedume - for ethnic or tribal motivated reasons to meet AFRC's "Execution Quota", and also, the unjust, cowardly, selective and vindictive execution of Okatakyie Akwasi Amankwa Afrifa, as well as the unjust, cowardly, ethnically and tribally motivated executions of the other Generals - and the cold murder of the Judges and an Army Officer, said the Politician who tells the truth as it is, and nothing but the truth !!!

Meanwhile, President John Agyekum Kufuor's ruling government has been asked to distance itself from fiery speeches by eminent people wielding enormous power of influence in the Nation that have the potentiality of igniting Civil Wars in the Country, as CPP activist and former Ghanaian-American Los Angeles Mayoral Candidate, "Osagyefo" Kwame Appiah Boateng (Kwame Mayor) publicly deplored [any] anti-Ethnic or anti-Tribal sentiments - declaring that [all] Ethnic Groups, including Asantes, Ewes, Dagombas, Gas, Frafras, Kwahus, Akyems, Fantes, Brongs, Mamprusis and in a nutshell, [all] Ethnic and Tribal groups in Ghana are (Collective Victims !!!) of tribalism, ethnicism, hate and sometimes, irrational jealousy !!!.

The 2004 CPP Parliamentary Candidate for Nhyiaeso Constituency in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, recently appealed to Ghanaians to give Otumfuo Osei-Tutu II, Asantehene, the benefit of the doubt and respect his INNOCENCE until proven otherwise, in the on-going Cocaine Investigation Saga, or the "C Word" Scandal Investigation - strongly defending Mr. Kwesi Pratt, Editor of the Insight and a high ranking CPP member, for being fair-minded enough to appeal to the Asante King to come out and clear his GOOD NAME !!!.)

"Osagyefo" Kwame Appiah Boateng, (Kwame Mayor), the biological or blood descedant and Great - Grandson of Asante War Generals who led heroic Asante Wars against the forces of Colonialism and Imperialism - (in their capacity as the historical and legitimate occupants of the Kumasi Adontenghene Royal Stool) - such as the legendaries Nana Kwarteng Pete, Nana Adonteng Boateng, Nana Kofi Aboasu, etc - from the Adonteng Puduo Royal Family of Bamang, near the famouse Kente weaving Town of Bonwire, in the Ashanti Region, said that even though he agrees with Otumfuo Osei Tutu 11 that certain individuals harbour anti-Asante sentiments, (as exemplified by the "Invasion of Kumasi" during the AFRC and PNDC eras) - "Osagyefo" Kwame Mayor would like to clearly and absolutely state that [All] Ghanaian Ethnic groups are [Collective Victims] of the evils of Tribalism and Ethnic Jealousies - and it is regrettable that the King did [not] promptly and publicly speak about the plight of Asantes in the face of [equally] enduring tribalism, just like "our fellow Ghanaian brothers and sisters" - notably, [until] the King attempted to defend himself of [allegations] of "Cocaine Scandal".

"Osagyefo" Kwame Mayor, again publicly pleaded with Ghanaians to treat Asantes as their fellow brothers and sisters, while asking Asantes to also, treat members of other ethnic groups or tribes as "our brothers and sisters, as the Golden Stool, bequeted to us by Okomfo Anokye, mandates us to do !!!".

"Asantes are good people, Ewes are good people, Gas are good people, Fantes are good people, Brongs are good people, Dagombas are good people, Akyems are good people, Kwahus are good people, Frafras are good people, Nzemas are good people - [All] Ethnic groups and tribes in Ghana are good people and we should learn to live together as "One People, One Love, and One Destiny", said "Osagyefo" Kwame Appiah Boateng, who obviously is [still] influenced by the enduring lyrics of legendary Reggae Super Stars of Blessed Memory, Bob Marley, and Peter Tosh and whose Childhood was shaped by the historical and extraordinary bravery of African Queen-Warrior, Nana Yaa Asantewaa and the courage of such historical greats as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, President John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X, Steve Biko, etc.

"Osagyefo" Kwame Appiah Boateng (Kwame Mayor) asked the person(s) responsible for writing "Otumfuo's recent "fiery speech" to take responsibility of it's antagosnistic nature - since "King Solomon" himself, would have used a more conciliatory, and peaceful (non-violent) method to speak the truth and nothing but the truth that, Asantes, like members of other Ethnic and Tribal groups in Ghana, are victims of hate and jealousis, - (just as our brothers and sisters who are Gas, Ewes, Dagombas, Fantes, Mamprusis, Brongs, Fantes, Akyems, Nzemas, Kwahus and every other ethnic group or tribe in Ghana are also victims of the same intolerance.

" I will not be surprised if some "Charlattan Politicians" or "Political Stooges" are behind the King's "fiery speech", since the King is a Peaceful and Non-Violent person and has "King Solomon's Wisdom", said "Osagyefo" Kwame Mayor, who basks fully in "PEOPLE'S POWER" around the World - from "Oseikrom" Kumasi in Ghana; Soweto in South Africa to Compton, USA, etc - (as a legitimate and Peaceful (Non-Violent) tool against any forces of persecution and oppression) -cautioning those who want to "derail" his Royal history as a biological member of the Bamang Adonteng Puduo Royal Family, that "there is no power on Earth, (except the Power of God Almighty), that can change his biological trait as the "Great Grandson of Adonteng Puduo War Generals from Bamang, near Bonwire, in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, who gallantly fought against Colonialism and Imperialism in their capacity as Adonteng Chiefs of Asante and historical or legitimate occupants of the Kumasi Adontenghene Chieftaincy Stool.

" Yes, tell the Colonialists, Neo-Colonialists and Imperialist stooges that this CPP activist was "Born a Legitimate Warrior" - to fight all forms of oppression and injustice" !!!, said the man who has been described in certain circles as "INTELLECTUALLY ARMED and DANGEROUS TO OPPRESSORS, PERSECUTORS AND ENEMIES OF EQUALITY" !!!.

IN ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT, Former President, Jerry John Rawlings has been offered "Peace Deal" by Rival / Opposing Politician, "Osagyefo" Kwame Mayor, to apologise to the Nation by [December 25, 2008] !!! - (in order to cement Permanent Peace process in Ghana).

The self proclaimed re-incarnation of Ghana's first President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is publicly pleading with the Nation to (Never) put any [future] President of Ghana, on politically-motivated or vindictive Trial - except on [proven] and massive Corruption or State Sponsored Human Rights abuses.

" I personally would like to [assure] the Nation that I will [NOT] put His Excellency, President John Agyekum Kuffuor on trial when his term ends and neither will I put former President Jerry John Rawlings on trial, if by the Grace of God Almighty and through HIS Merciful Destiny or Fate bestowed on me, I emerge as a future Leader in Ghana through the Ballot Box".

" However, Mr. Rawlings and Major (Rtd) Boakye Djan [still] have to apologise to the Nation for the blood they have shed in Ghana and for the "Crimes Against Civilization" they have committed against Ghanaians of [every] ethnic group and tribe, and tell the truth [100%] - in exchange for [full] Amnesty !!!, said the Peace Activist and student of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's Peaceful (Non-Violent) strategy of resistance. !!!
