Nana Frema Busia writes: Of salaried wives and the presidency!

Dear God

Ghana is in a fistfight
The President and his Vice want to pay their wives with Ghana as their tithe to show their might is right
Are they husbands of straw?
How raw?
Would this not be outright theft
To increase the national debt
And cause varied strikes
And more youthful deaths
By disguised Police and soldiers without depth who errs for their crest?

Konkron Nyame a wo kron you know ‘biribiara’ that causes national pain
Are Committees fed on cocaine?
To support those who reign?
Is Governance for private gain?
And conspicuous disdain?
Please Help Parliament again
To sanity Regain.


The writer is the daughter of the late Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia, Prime Minister of the Second Republic.
