Now keep in mind I’m just asking a question: I’m not making any accusations– but what’s with the mysticism and animal references in Ghanaian politics? Well, specifically NDC politics, if I’m just going to be completely honest. Ghanaian politics is more like a circus than a serious venture focused on nation building, and every good circus has a zoo element to it. But the NDC has just taken it too far with this whole “I have dead goat syndrome” thing.
For those who don’t keep up with the news from back home *ahem* A-Dub *ahem*, YOUR de facto president and mine just went to Botswana and said:
“I have seen more demonstrations and strikes in my first two years; I don’t think it can get worse. It is said that when you kill a goat and you frighten it with a knife, it doesn’t fear the knife because it is dead already. I have a dead goat syndrome.”
Don’t you dare laugh. This niggro actually got up in front of his constituents in another African country and referred to himself as a hollow-horned ruminant zombie.
Less than a year ago, Anita De Souza was holding dwarfs culpable for the rapidly depreciating cedi, saying that they were slipping into banks, stealing the country’s currency and using it for all manner of nefarious activities. Fine. We all had a laugh about it.
Sprinkle in the Tweaa DCE incident and there was enough comic relief to keep tensions at a minimum. But NOW, President John Mahama has not only pushed the envelope, upped the ante and crossed the line, he has set our whole house on fire by intimating that he is not only ineffective as the country’s president, but the cries of the nation fall on DEAD ears. Not deaf that can be restored by the power of Christ or Shiva ooo.
But why a goat? Isn’t that the symbol of Satan? Is President Mahama into demonic worship? Nah dude! I’m serious! I made a joke about Ghana and its leadership being covered in the blood of Satan and under his power…but it was a JOKE. Mahama n dem done took it too far this time. It was all fun and games until he busted out with the Baphomet idioms and that half-crazed look in his eye. Did you SEE his face when he made the announcement that we can shake a blade at him and he would be unmoved? He can’t feel what the ordinary citizens are going through because mentally, he’s not even on this planet y’all!!! Dude is saying there is NOTHING we can do to make him work any harder to ease the suffering of the people ‘cause he’s a spirit. A phantom. A specter. A deceased freaking GOAT.
That’s not okay.
Mmmmm. Discuss. ↓
