Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Maverick politician, Charles Kofi Wayo, may soon be dragged before the Privileges Committee of Parliament for some comments he made on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News on Republic Day July 1, 2010.

On the programme, Mr. Wayo described members of Ghana’s law making body as a bunch of self-seeking individuals, who are mostly criminals.

“The parliament itself is a useless place, the people there don’t need to be there, they don’t! They are criminals a lot of them in there. There is a Catherine Afeku there, she has been to court and a judge has found her guilty (and under protests by her host not to malign anybody, Wayo insisted he has documents to prove his claim)… nobody sacks her; a few weeks ago you have this guy, what’s the name, what’s that guy’s name, some MP guy, he got involved in a gold scam; right, so why don’t parliament sack them? Eh, eh, Amoateng, he’s been arrested for cocaine, what has parliament said? Have they thrown him out? He’s been convicted, ha?...the former Speaker (of Parliament) allegedly stole a lot of things, where is he? But Ataa Ayi, what did he steal before he is in jail? The big men don’t go to jail…” He said.

The comments have since infuriated some MPs who have vowed to drag the founder of the United Renaissance Party to the privileges committee for questioning

Citi FM parliamentary correspondent Richard Sky reports that the matter came up strongly in parliament on Monday, July 5. The MPs feel insulted and would want to initiate a process to cleanse their names.
