Letta to Osagyefo - Who are Ghana's servants and who are the people they are serving?

Posted by Nwia on Fri, 01/11/2008 - 14:56

Dear Osagyefo,

With most of the race tracks for Election 2008 filled and the absence of a defending champion, it's about time we talked about this important race. I am sure you are dying to know who is contesting and who the favorites are, but can we talk about the tatalalicious prize at stake? When you were running the race, were you focused on the fame or the fortune? Did you feel you were running the race for a group of people? What motivated you? As the race ensues, we shall find out more about our runners.

Osagyefo, how come you never ever really talk about your extended family? Who, what and where are your brothers and sisters? You know in this our country, we all claim many people as cousins, uncles and aunts and the system gives us support in times of need and a cheering squad in times of success. The only relatives we know of you are Fathia (may she rest in peace) and your children. Even them, we hear of them once in a blue moon and mostly, when you are in the news. Did you foresee that your family would be invisible in Ghana when you were gone? Would you marry an Egyptian again if you had the chance?


Thinking in English : South Africa and the two faces of "African" values

In the land of our birth, there are two value systems. The "African" values and the "School" values. The temptation of two often competing value systems that are not clearly defined by anyone allows for a great leeway of judgment.
