Kobby Acheampong’s Vulgarity: The Past in the Present (Pt. 1)

*Compiled By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

**These insults and vulgarities below are parts of Kobby Acheampong’s postings
on Ghanaweb, Say it Loud (SIL) in the period 1999-2003. The spate of pungent
wealth of Kobby Acheampong’s insults and vulgarity, exemplified by his recent
outbursts, was mined from SIL archives by Kwame Kumi (registered user) of
Ghanaweb and posted on SIL on March 21, 2011. I have quarried the information
and packaged them in inchoate verses WITHOUT DISTORTING, CHANGING, or
COMPROMISING the original materials. Thus the information below is in its
ORIGINAL form and can be verified on Ghanaweb (SIL). I believe that Ghanaians
should know the backgrounds of their appointed officials. We should vigorously
demand that our government furnishes us with the qualifications, work
experience, and social bearing of public officials. Indeed, a composite study of
Kobby Acheampong’s insults below reveals four things about him: uncouth,
violent, anti-Asante, and rabid anti-NPP. Kwame Kumi rightly points out that
“For those who didn't know anything about Kobby Akyeampong before he became a
Deputy Minister and as such may be wondering why a whole Deputy Minister could
be spewing all the garbage unbecoming of one please read the following threads
authored by him on this very site. Read on” (Courtesy of Author: Kwame
Kumi (registered user) Ghanaweb, Say It Loud: Date: 03-21-2011 13:05).

SECTION 1: "Author: Kobby Akyeampong. 12-02-1999
I knew you were not up to what you started yourself
You are an idiot of the highest order.
Stinking mouth open and saliva drooling from it
Chimpanzee face squarely
Kwasia pani.
[O]nye eya ye egbemii
Next time ke oba bie ni oba gye me ekonn
Go and buy deodorant for yourself and wife

SECTION 2: "Author: Kobby Akyeampong. 12-26-2000
Come over and get me. Kwasapani like you
Leave your stinking hole in…
Onye aye eesome
I will come and smoke you out

SECTION 3: "Author: Kobby Akyeampong 12-23-2000
Ghanaians are very tired of the NPP always crying wolf
When defeat stirs them in the face
JA Kufuor will never be president of Ghana..
If … [NPP] will want to create any semblence of confusing…
I am not warning you but I will tell in simple words
You may decide to call this a bluff
But just try to start anything
Even in the remotest parts of Accra
And the AXE will fall very heavily
You are at liberty to do whatever in Kumasi.
Ghanaians are tired of [NPP] BULLSHIT
When it come to elections

SECTION 4: "Author: Kobby Akyeampong 12-24-2000
I bet you guys will be the first out of the gates
Should war break out in Ghana
A lot of the nonsense [about] the NDC
Has been the propapaganda of tribal hatred
If Ghana has to go to war
To cleanse itself of Asante hatred
For anything that is not Asante, so be it
December 28th will be that day
Once again if election results are declared
And any one dares to cast doubts on the results
And calls for civil disobedience
Because their candidate lost
June 4 will look like a child's play
There are folks who have waited
For this last opportunity
To complete what they did not finish in these era
Because of Jerry' intervention

SECTION 5: "Author: Kobby Akyeampong 12-24-2001
Folks, this govt [NPP] is just a bunch of fools
Who have no sense of direction
When it comes the sovreignty of Ghana
When you elect a bunch of fools
You get foolish decisions
This is the price Ghanaians are paying
For the NPP govt.

SECTION 6: Author: Kobby Akyeampong 10-16-2001
You refuse to learn
But I will let you learn the hard way.
Have you finished cleaning
Your stinking father's anus
With your equally stinking mouth
Have you conveyed to your prostitute mother
[The] fact that " the market no good"
Guanten when humans are writing on this forum
Meanwhile tell your "asuo" wife that ..
Sanitary products are not expensive
And that she must use them
Instead of the "ntomago".
Aswii, ya lamoo o papa do na
Aboa bi ba…
Kwasianpani ba na niba…

SECTION 7: Author: Kobby Akyeampong 10-16-2001
Aponkye ba…
You just run away as your toothless father did
When he was caught molesting your own sister.
Go and preach to your stinking parents…
Bbecause many of their sexual escapades
In the "aponkybuom" is open secret…
[Y]our mother learnt her prostitution from the goats
Kwasia, advise your wife
To clean her @!#$ with toilet paper
Iinstead of the "ntomago"
Come again… son of the "aponkybuom"
Onye tuflemi soomi kpo.
