Pal dear o dear!
i just want to tell you that i feel so 'inundated' with happiness for the Rawlingses. i just do.
the reason: bcos their house got burnt!!! yes oooooooooo!!! and dare not try to take that hapiness from me.
first that occurence presented us with one young fun-seeking guy who instead of investing his time asking questions rather chose to make a ruling as if he was God our father who at in heaven; declaring rather without proof that he knows as a matter of fact that Rawlings himself torched his house. and that was just the beginning of another dramatic chapter in all the winding stories of the Rawlingses. First i thought the guy was a fool who thinks party politicking means one should say anything at all to make himself look like the champion of his political party. but later i was happy too that it happened. i was happy bcos it became a high-profile issue that presented another test for democracy in Ghana. i believe an unexamined life is not worth living pal. get my drift?????? well the case is in court. not that i trust our courts. i don't!!! but that's another story.
but now, the new twist to this whole saga is the claim by Mrs Rawlings that they are looking for a place to rent. Thank God!!! i breathed with happiness!!! if after all these years in public office; having accumulated enough resources from the tax payer for personal gain, it would turn out that the Rawlingses have no roof to hide under as husband and wife to continue 'consummating' their marriage in the privacy of their nakedness then that is wonderful news. wonderful pal!!! that's the word: wonderful.
So govt is supposed to give them accommodation?????? hel no!!! i say hell no!!! never again!!!
but THE REASON FOR THE REASON why I'm happy for the Rawlingses is the fact that this whole drama presents Ghanaians (i don't consider myself one anymore) with the opportunity to look themselves in the mirror and spit at the images they see for allowing the establishment of ex-gratia for ex-presidents. when that is done, Ghanaians would grow wiser and resolve never to allow such animal-characteristic exploitations ever again!!!
Pal, i swear!
