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


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.
