Ghanaian musician and political activist Kwame A-Plus has slammed the government of Ghana for holding a memorial service for George Floyd.
A-Plus in a recent post on Instagram quizzed whether the lives of the ordinary Ghanaian aren’t important that the government was mute when they were innocently killed.
He went on to quiz why the government has pretended to have not known that some innocent lives were lost in the country but is loud to hold a memorial service for an African-American.
Adding that what is the importance of what the government did by spending the taxpayers’ money to hold a memorial service for someone and ignoring the citizens.
Government of Ghana is holding a ceremony in honor of George Floyd but government has not been able to tell us why police shot and killed 7 unarmed Zongo boys in Kumasi and what has become of the investigation because Zongo lives don’t matter. 3 girl went missing in Takoradi but we didn’t hold a ceremony to honor them because Takoradi lives don’t matter. An unarmed man was shot and killed at Ashaiman during the lockdown but Ashaiman live don’t matter. 70 Ghanaians died in one accident at Kintampo. We didn’t hold an even to honor them. We didn’t even do DNA to identity those who were burnt beyond recognition so that their families could give them a befitting burial. We just dug a mass grave and pushed all of them into it. That was the end. Today we are holding a ceremony in Ghana to honor George Floyd. But this same government sent police to brutalize protesters in Adenta who were protesting for a foot bridge. Ghanaians are not blacks. Their lives don’t matter!!!
