    Another commentary of the Russia-Ukraine War

    Posted by in Blog , News , Ukrainecrisis , Ukrainecrisis 0

    #RussiaUkraineWar The more I watch the hysterics and the histrionics of Western leaders and commentators, the more I marveled at the cool, calm and stoical way V Putin and his crew are operating! I see in the conducts of the Russians evidence of thorough professionalism, unlike what we see in Western leaders – vapid emptiness […]

    Russia’s use of Hypersonic Weapon

    #Ukrainecrisis International Community: Russia has used Hypersonic weapon on defenseless Ukraine. Alaye: Ha! Given the amount of weapons that the West poured and keep on pouring into the country, Ukraine can hardly be called defenseless. By the way, is there a treaty that ban the use of hypersonic weapons? The trouble with you westerners is […]

    #UkraineCrisis – Why do African misrulers support the West uncritically?

    Posted by in Blog , Ukrainecrisis 0

    On March 17, 2011 the UNSC meet and passed Resolution 1973 which authorized the establishment of a No-Fly zone over Libya. NATO countries abused this resolution to launch military aggression against Ghaddafi. Not only was a sitting African Head of State executed like a dog by NATO-armed goons, the county was bombed into the Stone […]

    African misrulers on my mind

    Posted by in Blog 0

    #AfricanMisrulersOnMyMind Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference, that is, the capacity to place oneself in another’s position. Definitions of empathy encompass a broad range of emotional states. Types of empathy include cognitive empathy, emotional (or affective) empathy, and somatic empathy.” – Wikipedia […]

    If Only African Misrulers will read Fanon

    Posted by in Blog 0

    When I search for Man in the technique and the style of Europe, I see only a succession of negations of man, and an avalanche of murders.
    The human condition, plans for mankind and collaboration between men in those tasks which increase the sum total of humanity are new problems, which demand true inventions.

    The truth we refused to tell ourselves

    Posted by in Blog 0

    Did Fanon not warn us that no one treats his imitator or inferior like an equal?

    Against very sound advice and angry polemics from some of us, Ghana Telecom, including its fiber optics facilities and its university, was sold for a pittance to British Vodafone. Of course, within a few years, Vodafone has recouped its “investment” and it is today busy with fleecing poor Ghanaians by charging premium rates for crappy services it would never be allowed to get away with in Europe. Just take a look at the scam they sell as Data bundles in Ghana!

    Why can’t we get it into our heads that the Chinese are not in Africa because they are sold on our “Black is Beautiful” sloganeering?

    We would be supremely naive to think that they are in Africa for any other thing but to further their personal and national interests. It will be the height of folly to think or even imagine that any of them, coming from a communist country, will not be beholden to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of People’s Republic of China.

    About two years ago, at the height of another bout of Chinese-bashing hysteria in Ghana, I wrote a piece which caused quite a consternation.

    My piece was titled, “Not In Defence of Chinese Galamsey.” Here are some excerpts:

    “Are the Chinese or the foreigners really to be blamed for degradation of our environment and the pollution of our rivers?

    Who else is to be blamed? Have you not seen pictures of them and their equipment?

    Battling Epidemic of Presidential Plagiarism

    Posted by in Blog 0

    I cannot believe that any aide would have had the audacity to present Kwame Nkrumah with a plagiarized text.

    The reason is simple: the aide would have had enough respect for his boss’s intelligence not to do any dimwit piece of work and hand it over.

    Of course, there would also have been a system in place to ensure that presidential time was not wasted on shoddy jobs. And, of course, the president would read and check texts, especially National broadcasts, before he delivered them.

    What boggles my mind is that we currently have people working at the presidency, with all the perks, refusing to put in quality work to help their principal.

    This is most troubling. Are they just lazy, or do they have scant regard for their boss?

    But then, our elders say that goods are priced the way they are presented. No subordinate of mine would dare to insult me with any shoddy job; the reason is that s/he knows that there will be all hell to pay for such reckless effrontery!

    On Seeking Equivalences

    Posted by in Blog 0

    This is the stark reality that some among us refuse to acknowledge or accept.

    Rather for us to face reality and acknowledge that we have woefully failed ourselves and our progenitors, we look for ways to escape our culpability by blaming foreigners or seek equivalence. Rather than challenge our misfits of misrulers, we cast aspersions on other people!

    Like the Ostrich that buried its head in the sand, we continue to delude ourselves that all is well, and that the whole world cannot see our naked butts in the form of dilapidated schools and antediluvian health facilities that litter our landscape.

    We continue to refuse to face the reality that after over sixty (yes 60+) years of self governing ourselves, we have not been able to build enough capacities to feed, house and clothe ourselves without foreign help. Instead of admitting our failings and working hard to rectify our deficiencies, we continue to dance ourselves silly with self-generated lullabies!

    Dissecting SONA 2020

    Posted by in Blog 0

    I can only answer you with a quote by the late Professor Adebayo Adedeji: “Any economy that marginalizes people is doomed to failure. It is time that we stop applauding our leaders for reeling out meaningless statistics, most of them self-generated, and force them to address the absence of basic amenities for our people. Instead of telling us what Bloomberg is saying about our economy, our president should tell us why some Ghanaians still share drinking waterholes with cattle. Instead of reeling out fanciful figures about inflation and whatnots, our presidents should be asked to stop his mile-long motorcade, wind down his car’s windows and tell us why, if our economy is booming, so many of our people are eking out a miserable existence as hawkers and beggars in the hot sun on the streets of our major cities and towns. Those are the type of things we should ask those that lead us to address. Do you know something, Mr. Frimpong?

    And what should I know?

    I no longer blame those who are misruling us…

    Whom do you blame, then?

    I blame us, the citizens. Do you know about Stockholm Syndrome?

    No. What’s that?

    Let me quote from Wikipedia: “Stockholm syndrome is a condition in which hostages develop a psychological alliance with their captors during captivity. Emotional bonds may be formed, between captor and captives, during intimate time together, but these are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims.” I think that psychologists need to come up with a new term to describe us as Stockholm Syndrome did not do adequate justice to what is afflicting us. Just look at us, it appears that the more our misrulers in Africa debase us, the more tenacious we become in defending them. How do we explain the situation where we have a highly educated and well-traveled and well-exposed man like yourself waxing lyrical over a useless address by a president? Just look at the amount of time and energy and resources we expend daily in discussing issues relating to our elite who are but a tiny minority? We do not engage in meaningful discussions about social or economic development, all we do is engage in endless debates over political nonsensical.
