Have you ever had to drive through dark night? Night so dark you think someone has deliberately swapped the streetlights for dark fluorescent tubes and it is a mean darkness, engulfing you in some kind of horror movie?

That was Thursday night, driving from McCarthy Hill to a meeting at the Golden Tulip. The street lights, traffic lights, side lights and all other manner of lighting that could possibly help to navigate the way to the hotel and back, simply closed their beams and clothed the car in a dark eerie morass, only the occasional stroller caught the head beams of the car.

At some point I was sure I was lost and considered asking directions to a route I have followed hundreds of times in this short life. And that is what it felt like, that I was driving towards life’s end. Until I got past Kaneshie where there was some street lighting and pedestrians.

This is what ECG and its twin purveyors of “dark vada” have prepped for us. It is not good enough that we do not know when and if power will be available to work, now we are blessed with special night-light.

Not even the interest rates corridor could explain what we are going through, because I listened to the Governor of the Central Bank Dr. Kofi Wampah explaining once again why he had to increase the Central Bank policy rate two percentage points to 21% in order to hold down inflation in an economy where there is very little money circulating, costs are rising every month, Government is borrowing all the money and banks are complaining and yet reporting above-average profits.

Preparing To Sue Satan. Critical News, 5th October 2014

Reading through all the unfolding events at the National Students Secretariat this week, I had an epiphany. Why don’t we sue Satan for all the woes we are going through in this country?

Coming so soon on the back of the CHRAJ Commissioner’s wanton throw away of Government funds, the Brazil matters in camera and public and the education in corruption coefficients by the Ghana Football Association boss, I am convinced we are in spiritual entanglements.

We have been systematically bound in various forms of high-end incantations spiraling us down a path of permanent impiety. And this is after all the tolerance for many religious causes we have followed to ground ourselves in self-righteousness.

To issue the summons on Satan, the biggest challenge we have of course, is his address. Where do we find him? There is a place called Hell in Texas, USA; our equivalent in Ghana is right here in Accra in the Korle Lagoon.

But we could have a solution because fellow panelist Yaw Oppong on Citifm’s The Big Issue has rightly informed me that we can serve notice on Satan and his numerous agents as accomplices (I am not the only crazy one on the panel). We only need a list of the agents.

So I am asking Arch Bishop Duncan Williams, Anita De Sosoo, Kwaku Bonsam and the many others who cast out demons and bind evil in the name of the Christ to please send me a list of all the potential Satan Agents they know. Provided the street naming and house numbering is complete we should be okay. Read the rest of this entry »
