Nsempiisms: Emergency response absence

Joy FM NewsNight is examining emergency preparedness and response in the aftermath of the Kintampo accident.

See, unless we start speaking with bluntness about the state of affairs in our nation, we won’t improve.

For some of us who travel across Africa and not just across West Africa, it is clear how far we are being left behind as a nation by others who a few years ago couldn’t hold a torch to us. Our politicians continue to blow grammar in praising their abilities to throw crumbs our way, when they are in power, and join us to lament the mess they have created for us as a nation, when they are out of power. The only people who remain with the mess at all times are you and I, the ordinary people.

There is zilch emergency response in Sikaman. The best health policy is the grace of God and if you don’t have grace and money, you will die faster than the rate at which sim card prices fell.

Our leaders continue to praise themselves. The slide downwards continues. The people look on, afraid to talk. Content to be in political camps.

Long live the farce.

Nsempiisms. My mouth has fallen.
