tsatsu the ant


dear pal,

a lot of things are happening more quickly than the processing power of my tiny brain let alone the the dance of my lazy typing fingers on a keyboard...,

pal, the Ga language does have a word 'tsatsu' which means 'ant' (the animal? or insect!)... the above photo gives you an almost red collour of a typical ant in some greenish background. mind you pal, the ant is said to be a social insect!! and so why do i bother you with all these??? well why not keep your mind off the personality i'm going to talk about and just focus 'small' on the core issues i raise "herein hereafter" (hehehehehe)!!!

so Tsatsu has been granted bail alright as per his fight for justice after Kufuor decided to exercise power of pardon to release him... interesting times still... coincidences do happen huh or do they???

whatever be the course of the forces that spin this world, if i were man Tsatsu, i would have also rejected with more beautiful words the pardon of Kufuor.... in any case i have always said that our constitution is a bogus one and one of the reasons i think so is because it gives such powers to a (and note the letter 'a') president!!!

the law:
willfully causing financial loss to the state, that law i have already said is a vague law that needs to be scrapped before we all get crazy if at least i am not already... but then sure if man 'thieves' our resources then man must be made to face the law but not this 'too discretional' law me think... it is a LAZY LAW man! very LAZY!!!

i believe that if we are to apply this law to the letter then all all us must be in jail because i believe we've all done things and i mean things that could be termed easily by some lazy one as causing financial law 'willfully too' to the state! haaaaaba!

but be it as it may, i and i and i believe with all my heart and with all my might (what a funny word here!), that it is VERY CLEAR that man Tsikata; first was a VICTIM OF POWER INTOXICATION led by Kufuor and the fake human rights activist Nana Akufo-Addo... Secondly, i (and the other i) believe that man Tsikata did not get a fair trial under all the so called rule of law which unfairness i believe was juicily demonstrated to a 'soprano-crescendo' on the day of his sentencing to a five year jail term by the trial judge Justice Henrietta Abban in all holiness...

After all that 'gymnastic' display by Justice Abban and subsequent bias pronouncements to paint man Tsatsu as deserving of his jailing by the 'president' Kufuor himself on public/party platforms came the beautiful dance calling for more years for man Tsatsu the Tsikata!!!

awakening...
i note the limitations of man and woman with all respect to those who have come before us on this same earth... but i also note the knowledge man and woman have come to aquire since since since...

so what pal???
so Tsatsu the Tsikata gets bail alright and comes out and he's talking sense and he's talking nonsense too man! man Tsatsu says he's going (as he's already began since going to jail) to seek for just for not only himself but for the many many many many (many times many!) folks who have found themselves in jail unjustly with some being on just an un-ending journey of remand...

so what again pal? so does man Tsikata want me to believe that had he not been to jail he wouldn't have known that such were the foolish conditions of our judicial/penal system??? please spare us this one... well i hope that is not what you mean... but that is what you said... that it was while you were there that you realised all these things and so you have deemed it a duty upon your very self to fight for more justice...

and i say to man Tsatsu... that realisation is a good one for which he could count on a boy like me but the mentality being displayed by him to the effect that one only had to be faced with a particular situation such as this before realising what corrective measures to take for me is a slap on the face and i wish to condemn such an attack on my sensibility with all the my MIGHT...

i find it rather intriguing that man Tsatsu who is tauted so much to be a legal luminary of excellence with almost a needle-edge precission (and again pal, just look again at the photo of the ant above and don't mind my spin on a man i consider personally very very modest by the measure of many worthy scales... still, just focus on the core!) and as one who has been in the legal profession for so long to now come telling me this story... where has he been all these while??? even me, who is so faraway from the legal/penal system by profession have good knowledge that there is a lot of rot in there... and i never need to be jailed to realise this thing... it's just all over the world... it's right there before us all... so where has man Tsatsu been all these while...???

pal, if you wonder what i'm talking about... then my simple case is that if Tsatsu had been really really concerned about the human rights of folks... and if he knows that it's possible to get the wrong man or woman in jail (which knowledge shouldn't be far fetched for a trained lawyer like him), then shouldn't he have been concerned long long ago to at least do a researh to find out what the situation really was if even he could not imagine it being true??? so that it need not take him to be jailed before coming to realise this thing and to now claim to be waging a fight which a boy like me is ever ready to fight along with him to secure the human rights of folks???

so when would we awake to the 'bare faces' of basic principles????

and i make herein a reference to Obama's inaugural speech and i do so not because i think he's the inventer of these principles but just because he too seems to be championing them with an admission by himself that these principles have been around for so long...they are not new... and i quote:
Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true."

[aside: pal, don't forget as i would usually urge you, to ignore whatever talk about such as patriotism as in the above by Obama since those really are neither here nor there... again, i can serve a country with all clear and sound measures without limiting myself to a limitation such a patriotism.... At worst (and not best) let me be layal and patriotic to the whole of humanity...not any funny borders created by man...]

pal, as i write a lot more other things are happening... i would be telling you my views of the Konadu the RAWlings' sweetheart vs the state very soon as i hope for health and life and breath...

enough said for now...

LET Tsatsu Tsikata be freed, yes...
and let us just be true to basic principles at all times and if we fail to uphold the foundations of fundamental principles then let us just admit such and appologise to all humanity when need be so that humanity is served better... we owe these to ourselves and generations after us... i dare you! and now, just you dare me too??? hehehehehe...

FREE TSATSU TSIKATA now!!!

with a beautiful smile, cheers man!
