ALEXANDER AKOTO ADJEI
President R. Mensah: Ah Lieutenant Colonel Akatapori, what are you doing here this morning? I remember I asked you to stay home and make your wife feel like a woman today.
Lt. Col. Akatapori: Sir good morning, I wanted to stay home but I realised I have a job to be doing by protecting the most important personality in this country so I came to do my assigned work.
President R. Mensah: You have a job doing by protecting me but your family is very important and they also new your attention. Remember before we travelled outside the country I personally promised your wife that I will give you some days off so that you have some quality time with her, I think this is the best time for that vacation or quality time with her and your children.
Lt. Col. Akatapori: Sir I know all this best but the best time I have in this life and my job is to be standing behind you always. My wife is just trying to be a nag and she complains for no just reason, she goes about telling people and taking accolades that she is married to the man who guides the president of this noble country.
President R. Mensah: So you think my wife doesn’t also tell people she is also married to the president even though almost everyone she comes across knows. When you are not rich, you might think all that women need is money. When you become rich, you will then realise that women need attention the most.
And when you give them attention, you will later realise they need affection. After affection they will still demand for something else. Women are the only creatures God created and he still thinks he left something out from his work because they are unpredictable. You can’t be protecting me always as your house is also on fire. If it’s about protecting me, you know I have a lot of peole on standby in this very house even.
Lt. Col. Akatapori: Your Excellency I will take my first leave when we are back from your Sierra Leone trip. I hope you are okay with this?
President R. Mensah: Okay my boss in charge of security.
Man: (walks in) Good morning Mr president. Sorry I am a bit late and I hope you managed to catch a little sleep last night?
President R. Mensah: Oh don’t worry, at least you are here before I set off to the airport and talking about sleep, it was something that was very far from my wife and I. All the same have you gathered any information concerning the abductors?
Man: Upon the information we gathered yesterday, I mapped out a certain location the police and military should watch out for. With your order I and the interior minister will be heading to the Nsawam prison to move Luietanant General Afutu to the police hospital.
On our way a swat team will be on standby at vantage points monitoring any trailing car that follows us. Before I forget, please take this phone, all your calls will be diverted on this line as you travel outside the country because I know those abductors will be calling you to give or take information from you.
Also I want to add that any part of the world you find yourself, there will be a stable network and internet connection for you to make and receive countless calls and also send and receieve internet messages at any given time and the line is very secured.
President R. Mensah: Thank you so much senior Alex, I always had the notion that such phones were so big but today I have a sleek screen touch phone to be serving that purpose.
Hon. Asantewaa: (walks in) Good morning your Excellency and gentlemen. Sir I trust you and your wife are doing well by the special grace of God?
President R. Mensah: Good morning madam Asantewaa as you can see, I am fine just that your daughter has been moody and won’t say a word to me even when I engage her in a conversation.
Hon. Asantewaa: Well I can understand her as it stands now, if you were in her shoes maybe you would have done worse but you being a man I know you will see things different but she will come around soon. She is in the healing process and after we have had a positive result she will bounce back as the vibrant and happy wife she is.
Lt. Col. Akatapori: Sir am picking up information that all is set at the airport and the plane is on the tarmac waiting for you to board.
Hon. Asantewaa: Its very true sir we need to be on our way now.
President R. Mensah: (pulls hon. Asantewaa aside) Madam I don’t trust my vice president as it stands now, you are the only person I can cast my hopes in as I leave the shores of this country, please stay behind and be monitoring affairs for me. I will be communicating with you periodically to get updates from.
Also I know Rhoda is fond of you and your presence alone will do her a lot of good by calming her down. Travelling with the foreign minister this morning is enough so please bear with me. Also I will let Detective Akoto report to you directly so I will be counting on you for that also.
Hon. Asantewaa: As you please Mr president, I am always at your service and it remains a great privilege for me to be serving you and mother Ghana.
President R. Mensah: Thank you very much madam Asantewaa, I knew I could always count on you so far as co-operation is involved. I will be on my way and will remain in touch with you.
Hon. Asantewaa: I wish you the very best of luck and please be firm when you get to Sierra Leone and Cote D’Ivoire. I will be inside with the first lady for now and later rush to the office a the vice president will also leave town today.
President R. Mensah: Thank you so much madam Asantewaa. (they walk back to the others)
Man: Mr president you need to be on you way now, you will be getting updates from me as to any development that crops up till you return.
President R. Mensah: Senior Alex, one of the few people I trust in this world is the woman who just left us. Kindly be sending her updates so that she doesn’t feel I am keeping her on the blindside. Every information you want to pass to me, please let her get the same details. I will be on my way.
Man: Your wish remains my humble command Mr president. I wish you a safe trip and the best of luck. I will be monitoring your movement also with the tracking device in the phone I gave you. May God be with you.
President R. Mensah: (hugs the man) And with you also senior Alex. (sits in his car)
Lt. Col. Akatapori: (salutes the president and gives some command on his communication device) The eagle is seated, let us hit the road straight to the airport.
Lead Rider: Roger that sir. (starts the motor engine and puts the siren on)
Man: (walks into the hall where the first lady and madam Asantewaa are seated) Good morning ladies, I know madam first lady might not like to see my face because of the encounter that took place last night. All the same I want you to know that I am on your side and I will do everything humanly possible to get your daughter back to you safely.
Hon. Asantewaa: Thank you very much for your assurance and support Detective Akoto. As you can see now, all we need is for Beverlyn to be brought home safely to us.
Man: With God by our side, we will surely smile at the storm. Though weeping might come at night, joy will surely come in the morning. I will be on my way to the Nsawam prison to get the man out, he is our ticket to get Beverlyn home safely. I will be sending you up to date information as things unravel.
At the Matron’s Residence:
Matron: Kwame you are not eating your food, are you not enjoying the meal?
Twum Boafo: My dear the food is nice but I am worried about junior and his safety in the bush.
Matron: You worry too much my dear, the little man is very safe wherever he finds himself and mind you he is not alone in the bush so please relax and let him enjoy his expedition out there with the other children.
Twum Boafo: I know he might be safe out there but amongst all the boys that went to the bush, he is the vulnerable one over there as he has less experience in the bush.
Matron: Kwame you worry too much, junior is a strong boy and he will sail through like all the other guys. If you sailed through during your time, junior will also do same.
Twum Boafo: My dear I was born and raised in the village, going to the bush to hunt was the only thing guys at my age knew. The upbringing of junior is far different from mine, that is the very reason why I am bothered. My dear please permit me tonight so I pay the boys a little visit just to monitor their safety.
Matron: If that is what will make my sweetheart happy, I don’t have any issues with that as far as it makes you happy. I will entreat you to be careful when you step out of this place.
Twum Boafo: Thanks so much for your understanding, I promise to take care of myself and also stay out of sight because I don’t have to be seen or be in the bush with those youngmen.
At the City:
Radio 1 Studios:
Radio Presenter: Good morning to you our cherished listerner, today our show promises to be interesting as our guests are already seated for the discussion of national issues and the current worrying matter on ground. I have in the studio on my left a senior communication officer from the leading opposition party and he is in the person of Nathan Anku.
On my immediate right is the youth organiser of the ruling government and he is Emmanuel Coffie. Also I have in the studio a senior lecturer from the linguistics department of the premium university, she is your favourite guest professor Stella Ansong. Lastly I have doctor Sasu Mensah in the studio, he is a security analyst from the African Security Centre. Lady and gentlemen I welcome you to our studio this morning.
Professor S. Ansong: Thank you for having me here this morning for some important discussions on national issues.
Radio Presenter: It is always a pleasure to have you in our studio. Before we continue with today’s programme, some of our reporters were sent to town this morning to interview some Ghanaians on the recent kidnappings that has found it’s roots in our peaceful and loving country. I will play some of the tapes so we all listen to it.
Reporter: This morning I find myself at the Kaneshie market to interact with some market women on their thoughts on the recent kidnappings that has been taking place in our country. Madam you are on Radio 1, please tell us your name and take on the recent issues happening in the country?
Market Woman: My name is Akushika and I sell pepper in this market, to me what is happening in this country has made me so uncomfortable, now when my children go to school and they are not back on time then I am so worried because even if bad people could take the child of the president then who am I a common pepper seller. Right now I have warned my children not to speak with any stranger or go for errands for people because if anything happens to my children, I will die.
Reporter: I will die if anything happens to my children says madam Akushika. I have gotten another market woman here who has something for us, madam please tell us you name and your take on the matters arising in our country.
2nd Market Woman: My name is Worglo Mary and I sell fish in this market. Me as at now I am scared and I feel we are not safe in this country again, first it was the 3 girls from Takoradi and now the daughter of the president. Hmmm this is not what the president told us when he wanted power. He promised us of great security protection so if his own daughter has been kidnapped by some people then we are not safe anymore in this country.
From now onwards I have decided to take my children to school and go back for them when they close from school, I can’t gamble with the lives of my 5 children. All the same I wish the president the best and I hope his daughter and the other 3 girls are found in good shape. Thank you.
Reporter: Thank you very much madam Worglo for speaking with us this morning. I have gotten a man here and will also take his bite on this matter. Hello sir please tell us your take on the matter on ground.
1st Market Man: Thank you for giving me this opportunity to say something about the kidnapping of the president’s daughter and other alarming matters. My name is Kofi Tawiah and I sell eggs in large quantities over here, my brother honestly speaking with you right now, I am very scared about the security and safety of this country.
Some months ago a man was caught in the Northern region carrying a gun on him inside a church auditorium, days later we heard some foreigners from our neighbouring countries were caught with grenades and some weapons right at Lapaz.
Almost a year now 3 girls from Takoradi were kidnapped and up till now we don’t know the whereabouts of them, as if that was not enough, now the daughter of the whole sitting president has also suffered the same fate. Now my brother will it be news if by tomorrow we hear the entire country has been taken over by kidnappers? Please take my question to your studio and ponder over it. (walks away)
Reporter: Well this are the views of some market women and man on the state of our security affairs. Reporting from Kaneshie market, I am Bice Addy.
Radio Presenter: Okay listeners, this was a coverage my colleague reporter filed from the Kaneshie market. In due course I will open the phone lines for you our listeners to phone in and share your thoughts with me. Mr Nathan Anku it’s been long I last saw you, the last time you were here, you were so sure your party was going to win the general elections but it turned otherwise. Hope all is well in your party and your home?
Nathan Anku: That is true my brother, first I will greet your cherished listerners and my dependable political party faithfuls. Honestly all is not well and my house doesn’t look good under the leadership of President Reedolf Mensah, this young incompetent leader has sat Ghana on a time bomb waiting for it to explode anytime soon.
Under his leadership nothing happens to be going well my brother, things are falling apart in his government and the centre is not holding. Under his watch bad things are happening that even his own daughter happens to be a victim.
Now when your children step out, until they return, you are not yourself. Ghanaians are very sad they voted for this do little government led by president Mensah, infact we sold our coloured tv to go and buy a black and white tv. It’s about time we stand up and demand for our rights before we are all kidnapped by some bad people.
Radio Presenter: Doctor Sasu Mensah, please you just heard Mr Nathan Anku talk, do you agree with him on what he said?
Dr. Sasu Mensah: Thank you for having me in your studio this morning and good morning to your lovely listeners. Ken one thing I always say when I am given the chance to speak on security issues is that, we should never ever politicize our security and it’s agencies. Security doesn’t know whether you are from party A or B, neither those it care whether you are rich or poor.
What has been happening now in our country is a matter that we need to tackle outside the corridors of politics. When you travel to advanced countries like Germany, America, France, United Kingdom, Russia and the other countries, every 25 minutes, some one is kidnapped and for death every 6 minutes someone is either shot or stabbed.
Ghana has enjoyed peace ever since we entered the fourth republic and what I can say now is, if we want to clump down crime then we must first strengthen our boarders so we know the people who enter and leave our country because according to a survey I and my team did just last month, most of the top crimes that takes place in this country are been done by foreigners or most at times spearheaded by this same foreigners from our neighbouring countries.
We must learn to be observant and also be our brother’s keeper because the police won’t always be available to arrest people who engage themselves in such act. We must also cultivate the habit of communicating with the police when we see some strange movement of people we don’t know and I believe with this, we can tackle this rising crime rates.
Radio Presenter: Thank you very much doc, Emmanuel Coffie, since your party came to power, you have been so busy that getting you for shows has now turned into a nightmare. All the same I am very happy to have you here to talk about the security system of this country. You heard Mr Nathan Anku heap blames on the president and your political party, also doctor Sasu Mensah made some critical points that we need to work on, as the youth organiser of the ruling party, what do you have to say on this worriesome matter?
Emmanuel Coffie: Thank you for opening your doors for me and my other party executives always. I bring you warm greetings from his Excellency the president, his household, my party chairman and party faithfuls. I would take this opportunity and greet your loyal listeners and the important guests you have here in your studio with me.
First and foremost I will say I am not surprised my big brother from the opposition party is seated here trying to throw dust in the eyes of Ghanaians, I was in this studio with him when he made a childish statement that should his party lose in the general elections, he will stop doing politics, isn’t he the same person seated here running his mouth like a broken water pipe?
I am not surprise he has come to sit in this honourable studio to tell lies and make up stories which has no bases to Ghanaians, am happy doctor Sasu Mensah made a statement that we should not do politics with this matter, what is going on now in our country has been something that is happening in other countries but for us, it is now finding it roots here. As our president, mine president, your president and the entire
Ghana president said last night, he won’t negotiate with any kidnappers or terrorists, we need to rally around him and his family during this difficult moment of his career because if most of us were to be in his shoes, we might have chosen a different approach which wouldn’t fall in line with what the constitution has stated.
The previous government signed a bad deal with the world bank which prevented the government sector from employing or recruiting people into the security services and other government agencies, this able government led by president Reedolf Mensah has negotiated with the world bank where that embargo has been lifted on the country so that more youths without any criminal background can be enlisted into the security services, by so doing, Ghana will meet the United Nation security standard and more officers can be deployed to town for rapid response and tackling issues like this kidnapping easily.
I will seize the moment and advice all Ghanaians to indirectly turn into police detectives by always looking around and reporting anything unusual they see around the homes, community or workplace. As the president said in his nation address, those 3 girls and his daughter will be found and brought back home only if they are still alive. Thank you and may God bless out homeland Ghana.
Radio Presenter: Thank you for ending at the right time, professor Stella Ansong please you have the floor now, please talk to us.
Professor S. Ansong: Ken thank you so much, to add to what doctor Sasu Mensah said, now the new method this criminals have invented is, they dress well to events and social gatherings at night, they then write down a particular car number and bring it to the MC that the particular car with that car registration number has blocked someone from either driving in or out of the premises so you should come out and park your car well.
If it is you car the moment you step out to do so, they take advantage of you, they seize your car or maybe take it for a robbery operation then later they abandon your car somewhere, later your family will be called for a ransom.
That is the new method they have implemented so when you are out and you hear such thing, please don’t go alone, go out with two or more people so that, they can assist you should the news be a false one. Again I would advice parents not to be sending their wards out after 6pm especially those living in estates and new sites.
Lastly I will entreat parents to build a health communication relationship with their kids so that the children will feel free to confide in them or give out some requisite information to them when the need be.
I wish the president and first lady well as I know they might be going through a lot by now. It is not easy for the family and the child whom has been kidnapped because the trauma the kidnappers take you through, it’s only divine intervention that can make the kidnapped person still come close to people. I am saying so because I was once kidnapped about 34years ago after I completed my O Level, I ended up in the Northern region.
Emmanuel Coffie: (cuts in) Ah so you see this kind of thing didn’t just start yesterday or last year.
Nathan Anku: Oh my friend don’t play smart here, your incompetent government has brought us to this place where we are living in fear and panic. We are now slaves in our own country under the watch of president Mensah, Ghanaians need to wise up and vote this incompetent and do little government out for good. We deserve best in this country.
Emmanuel Coffie: See who is taking about Ghanaians deserving better, am surprise people like you have still got mouth to speak after the embarrassment your government suffered when in power. I am highly disappointed in your…….
Radio Presenter: (cuts their microphone) Gentlemen please don’t hijack my show this morning, your microphones has been switched off until your time is up for you to talk.
I just got a message that the president has flown out of this country this morning. I will take a short commercial break and when we are back we will continue our discussion. Cherished listeners I will be back shortly so don’t touch the dial (plays a commercial advert)
At the Matron’s Residence:
Matron: Hey this gentleman is very stubborn, so even as his only child has been abducted, he is still going round doing his work as the president or he has a hand in what is going on?
Twum Boafo: Oh why would you think that way? I think he is doing all that to draw a line for those abductors, Ghanaians also know how to talk and if decided to sit at one place, his political opponents will use it against him during the campaigning era. Please is this black top okay for my mission tonight?
Matron: No it’s a short sleeves t-shirt, please use the black long sleeves polo shirt we got yesterday. You can also wear the black Nike sneaker we bought so that no one will hear your footsteps when coming.
Twum Boafo: What could I have done without you in my life? You have solution to everything I need and honestly if the name angel is mentioned, you are a perfect example of one.
Matron: (being sacarstic) Am flattered my honey boo, sweetheart I hope you know how to you a pistol?
Twum Boafo: (looks surprise) Pistol? Why do you ask and don’t tell me you have one in this house?
Matron: Why are you looking so surprised? I have two in this house for protection. I brought one with me when I relocated to Ghana and my son also brought one when he last came to the country. It is because of the police post at the junction that is why thieves and armed robbers have stopped terrorising us in this area. Almost everyone living in this area has a licensed weapon or rifle so it’s no news to own one in this house my dear.
Twum Boafo: Okay I understand now, all the same I know how to use it.
Matron: Good, let’s go into the bedroom for you to make your choice so that we can grease it together. It’s over a year that I last fired some shots from it, I will get the sidearm punch for you also. After we are done greasing the pistol you can please help grease my rusty body for me also, its been long since I satisfied my emotions and felt like a woman.
Twum Boafo: With pleasure I will take you to paradise and bring you back to earth safely.
Family House of Mrs Twum Boafo:
Mrs Twum Boafo: Hello Awo Yaa, good morning please is my uncle in?
Awo Yaa: What do you want from him you insolent woman? The insult you gave him the other time was not enough for you so you have come to add more to it right? You better leave this place before your uncle comes out to see you here.
Mrs Twum Boafo: I am sorry Awo Yaa, I don’t know what came over me the other time. I came here to plead and ask for forgiveness from my uncle. I know my actions was bad and unpardonable but to err is human and to forgive is divine.
Awo Yaa: If you know how to preach this well, I will suggest you establish a bible school for insolent people like your type. Take this free advice from me, run as fast as your two left legs can carry you because when your uncle comes to meet you here, you will not like the way he will treat you. (uncle comes out from the room)
Uncle Ato: Well who do we have here in this house this early morning?
Awo Yaa: I guess that question was not meant for me to answer.
Mrs Twum Boafo: (goes on her knees) Uncle Ato good morning.
Uncle Ato: What is good about this morning woman? Is it that you have stepped foot in this house or because you are still alive? Woman since this is a family house, I won’t ask you to leave this compound but I will ask you to leave my doorway.
Mrs Twum Boafo: Uncle Ato please forgive me, our elders say when your child defecate on you thighs, you wash it but you don’t cut it off. I have seen my mistakes that is why I have come to ask for forgiveness.
Uncle Ato: (looks at the sky and shakes his head) So it is forgiveness you want erh?
Mrs Twum Boafo: Yes please.
Uncle Ato: Okay I have forgiven you, now can you please leave this place? (tries to enter his room)
Mrs Twum Boafo: (holds the uncle back) Uncle please don’t go in now, I have come to ask you to escort me to go and beg my husband. I don’t know why I allowed the devil to take over my mind and actions.
Awo Yaa: (cuts in) So this man called devil, is he that stupid? Any crime or foolish thing someone does, the person shifts the blame on him and he never comes out to defend himself. How do you see my husband? You rained insults of all kind on my husband when he adviced you to stay with your husband and today you gathered courage and the audacity to approach him for him to escort you to go and beg your husband.
You are a shame to womanhood and you don’t deserve to be called a wife or mother. If my husband decides to go with you even, I won’t allow that and I mean every word coming from my mother.
Mrs Twum Boafo: Aunt Awo please forgive me, I simply don’t know what came over me, honestly I have learnt my bitter lesson in a hard way. Uncle Ato you are the only family member I have now, please don’t punish me with my mistake, I swear I won’t repeat that mistake again in my life. I have turned a new chapter of my life.
Uncle Ato: My dear you heard what my wife said, for the forgiveness you have been pardoned but for me to go with you to your husband, I am sorry I can’t do that. I might not be rich or well educated like you but I have a pedigree of respect to protect.
You untie the animal where you tied it so go and make peace with your husband yourself. I wish you all the best of luck in your quest to get your marriage back. (walks back into the room)
At the Nsawam Prison:
Warden: To what do I owe this surprise visit gentlemen?
Interior Minister: Good day Mr warden and thank you for opening your door for us. We will not take much of your time this morning, we have a letter from the president for the immediate release of a prisoner by name Lieutenant General Afutu.
Warden: Lieutenant General Afutu? The name doesn’t ring a bell here. Please when was he brought here?
Man: Hello Mr warden, the man in question is serving a life imprisonment sentence in this prison. He was brought here about 29years ago for an attempted coup detat. He should be in you condemn cell by now.
Warden: In the condemn cell the only person who has been here for that long is in a critical state that if I hear he is dead now, I won’t be surprise.
Man: Warden if that man dies, Ghana will capsize. This is his immediate release letter from the president, please order your boys to get him over here right now.
Warden: I am sorry sir but the man in question has been paralyzed for months and as I said, he being alive every single day is a miracle.
Interior Minister: Warden give the necessary orders for the said man to be released to us so we rush him to the hospital right away.
Man: (gives orders on his communication device) Inspector Bediako please convert one of the V8’s into a temporal ambulance and move into the prison yard with your men right away.
walks back to his room)
Vice President Residence:
Second Lady: Honey so has the president said anything about my contract that he terminated?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: My dear you shouldn’t be talking about this now. The way that youngman is hot, if that matter is raised infront of him, the kind of feedback he will give you and I won’t like it. There is a bigger and better opportunity ahead so just wait for the better time. In no time your pedigree will shoot high and everyone will be looking up to you. My spirit tells me victory is near so brace yourself glory.
Hajia Ramatu: (walks in with Hon. Nortey and Johnson) Good morning your Excellency and madam second lady.
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: Good morning
Hajia, you guys are late.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Good morning your Excellency, I am sorry for the delay. I had to sort some constituency executives who came to my place out.
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: That is okay, at least you guys are here now and that is the most important thing.
Second Lady: Should I get you anything my honourable members of parliament before I take leave of you?
Hon. Johnson: We are very much okay your Excellency.
Second Lady: Okay then lady and gentlemen, I will take leave of you guys for now so that you can talk politics. (walks away)
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Your Excellency your call that came early this morning sounded very agent as you instructed me not to go to the parliament house today, is anything the matter?
Hon. Nii Nortey: Hajia that was the same thing that came to mind before I phoned Johnson. Sir please what is the matter?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: (walks to his bar and comes back back a bottle of champagne and glasses) Let’s make merry my good friends for the best is about to happen in this country. (pop’s the champagne and starts sharing the wine)
Hon. Johnson: Please sir, what are we about to toasting for?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: My brothers and sister, lift your glass as we toast to victory.
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Victory? What victory are you talking about please?
Hon. Johnson: Sir please has the daughter of the president been rescued or found?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: Far from that my political comrades.
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Ah I am getting confused here, your Excellency please I need clarifications here, please be honest with us because you know very well that in our party, we are you 3 most trusted followers who are solidly behind you always. Sir tell us, do you have a hand in the abduction of the president’s daughter?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: (releases a loud laughter) Hahahahahaha, oh Hajia so you are still doubting me as I earlier on told you I have no hand in that unpardonable action. C’mon I am a father and grandfather to be crying out loud. Even though I have issues with the president, there is no way I would involve his little daughter into this matter.
Hon. Nii Nortey: Then sir, please let us understand what is going on today at this place?
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: Well since everyone including my wife and children are so engrossed in the abduction of the little girl and you all have forgotten that today is my 60th birthday, I will rather remind you of it as my trusted friends.
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Oh it was just 3days ago that I raised this birthday thing to Johnson but because of the matter on ground, it escaped all of us. Please forgive and pardon us for not remembering this very important day.
Hon. Nii Nortey: A glorious birthday to you sir, I pray God listens to your prayers and grants you your heart desire.
Hon. Johnson: Indeed victory has been your portion, it’s not everyone who got it as you have gotten it. I pray for divine health and long life for you sir. Happy birthday to your Excellency.
Second Lady: (walks in with a cake in her hands and her children following her singing) Happy birthday to you!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!
O, Happy birthday to you!!!
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: (very surprised) Hey where did you pass to enter my house all of you? We were chatting yesterday on whatsapp and you never told me that you and your sisters were on your way to this country. Paula you only this country 2weeks ago and you told me at the airport that you will return in 2years time so all those things you said to me were lies?
Doreen: Dad we used the backdoor and am glad we have been able to surprise you on your special day.
Paula: Am sorry dad but I couldn’t stay behind as your 60th birthday celebration was just around the corner. I have good news for you also, Kelvin and I are expecting a new baby!!! (runs to hug her dad)
Vice Prez. Wooow what a very nice way to celebrate my 60th birthday. Am I not a lucky man?
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Indeed you are lucky and blessed your Excellency. Your children have done so well to journey down here to celebrate you. I now see the victory you spoke about earlier on.
Doreen: Honourables please let me seize this opportunity to invite you to our dad’s 60th birthday party that will take place this saturday evening. Infact it is an all white party so please add it to your to do list.
Hon. Johnson: Even if you didn’t invite us, we will convey ourselves and families here to celebrate with our senior brother.
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: You have spoken my mind Johnson, infact the preparation towards the party starts now. Doreen as an event planner and cordinator I avail myself to the planning of this grand birthday celebration.
Doreen: Thank you so much Hajia, I was thinking of how to get a good event planner as I have lost the contact of the one who coordinated my wedding.
Hon. Hajia Ramatu: Then your dream has come to pass, if you want to know my track record, your father and honourable members will tell you that I was the chairperson for the planning of the swearing in ceremony of our president and the banquet that was held the same night.
Vice Prez. J. Bugri: Okay ladies and gentlemen, I have some commissioning to do at the Bono region and my chopper is waiting for me at the air force base. This celebration will continue when I return tonight. Guys thank you so much for honouring my invitation on a short notice, your presence here has illuminated my day and I will cherish this moment all my life. DSP Tanko please let us but the road.
Later in the day, the president and his entourage finish with their bilateral talk at Sierra Leone and on their way back, they make a stopover in Cote D’Ivoire. They are then taken to the house of General Giwah as they requested.
At the Residence of General Giwah:
President R. Mensah: Hello sir, I and my envoy would like to see the General, is he in?
General’s Butler: Yes please and if I may ask, who are you and where are you coming from because the General doesn’t receive male visitors in his home?
President R. Mensah: Well if we were any ordinary people I don’t think your tight security will permit us in. Since you don’t seem to know me or anyone here, I will introduce myself and my entourage to you. My name is President Reedolf Mensah from Ghana, with me are delegation members from the African Union, my bodyguide and translator. Who are you also?
General’s Butler: Oh okay Mr president, my name is Issah Mumin Arafat and I am the General’s butler and translator. Please come in as I inform the General of your presence here. (ushers them in as he goes in to fetch the General)
President R. Mensah: Thank you very much Mr Arafat.
General’s Butler: Général monsieur, je vous prie, c’est un envoyé de l’Union africaine, à ma droite, le président du Ghana, son Excellence Reedolf Mensah, ambassadeur de la paix auprès de l’Union et d’autres dirigeants d’Addis-Abeba. Ils sont ici pour une visite importante général monsieur. (General sir please this is an envoy from the African Union, from my right is the president of Ghana, his Excellency Reedolf Mensah who doubles as the Peace Ambassador to the union and other leaders from Addis Ababa. They are here on an important visit General sir)
General Giwah: (walks in with 2 sexy ladies following him) Gentlemen I heard you are from the African Union and you are here for an important discussion, welcome to my palace. Arafat get them something strong to drink.
President R. Mensah: Corporal Tinadu, translate this to him, tell him I don’t add pleasure to business. I came here in the company of this important men to speak sense into his head.
Corporal Tinadu: General je n’ajoute pas de plaisir aux affaires.
General Giwah: (cuts in) Corporal no need to interprete for me, I do understand English and I can read and write.
President R. Mensah: General then that is good for us because I don’t want to take much of your limited time. We have passed the autocratic and dictatorship era and now we are in the democratic era where the views of every citizen must be respected. You don’t rule your citizens by taking their freedom from them and molesting them. Look at how bad your country is looking, women and children are running helter skelter just because your military men are terrorising them.
For the men, almost all those I saw on the street coming here have either the hands or legs amputated. General for God sake we are in the 21st century for crying out loud. You can’t enslave your people like that.
General Giwah: (slams his hands on the table) Heeeeey don’t angry me!!! If you are wise, you are not wiser than God who gave me power to rule those fools. You can’t leave your country and come to mine and tell me what to do, if not for the respect I have for your country, I would have ordered for your execution right this moment. Now leave my palace before I change my mind.
President R. Mensah: (speaks in French to the General as he stands up from his seat) Je ne suis pas bon avec les mots quand je suis provoqué, vous feriez mieux de renoncer au siège que vous occuperez dans les 7 prochains jours, sinon vous serez émerveillés par la surprise que je vais jeter derrière votre arrière-cour.
(I am not good with words when I am provoked, you better relinquish the seat you are occupying in the next 7 days if not you will be marvelled at the surprise I will throw behind your backyard)
General Giwah: (speaks angrily with his security detail) Vous êtes des imbéciles, qui a donné à cet idiot l’autorisation d’entrer dans ma concession? La prochaine fois que cela se produira, je vous exécuterai personnellement. Maintenant, quitte ma présence, imbéciles incompétents
(you fools, who gave those idiots the clearance to enter my compound? The next time such thing happens I will personally execute all of you. Now leave my presence you incompetent fools)
Did the president do the right thing by poking his nose in another country’s presidential issue?
What lies ahead of the president?
Awo Yaa and her husband, were they fair to Mrs Twum Boafo?
Do you smell any foul play ahead? Air your views so we know your thoughts.
Let the discussion start across the various platforms………
