Latest comment on Ghanaweb
As Kwame Nkrumah rightly pointed out on Ghana's eve of independence, "The independence of Ghana is meaningless unless it is linked up with the total liberation of the whole continent of Africa!" With the continent still in the belly of the beast of imperialism, cut into fragile neocolonial bantustans that we call fatherlands, not one independence anniversary is worth celebrating!

On the contrary, we need to celebrate Nkrumah. We need to do this not for Nkrumah, but for ourselves and generations yet unborn in order to keep the Pan-Africanist flame blazing! To think of the amount of money the Busia-Danquah neocolonialist tradition of the NPP spent and stole during the Ghana@50, it is more than obscene to hear them complain.

“We in Africa who are pressing now for unity are deeply conscious of the validity of our purpose. We need the strength of our combined numbers and resources to protect ourselves from the very positive dangers of returning to colonialism in disguised forms. We need it to combat the entrenched forces dividing our continent and still holding back millions of our brothers. We need it to secure total African liberation. We need it to carry forward our construction of a socio-economic system that will support the great mass of our steadily rising population at levels of life which will compare with those in the most advanced countries” - Kwame Nkrumah, "Africa Must Unite!", 1960.

We need to remind people of this! Only the enemies of our freedom and development are complaining!
