Controversial Ghanaian musician and member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Asare Obeng aka Kwame A Plus has said the President of the United States Donald Trump is justified to describe African countries ‘shitholes’.
According to A Plus, African continent suffers several mishaps that should not happen in the twenty-first century.
In a post on Facebook, the NPP sympathizer could not fathom why in the twenty-first century, some Africans including Ghanaians will queue just to have access to toilets.
The musician says he is surprise why people build houses on daily bases but laws are not enforced to have them add important facilities such as a toilet.
“Today, 2018 people queue to shit in Accra, the capital of Ghana. Nigeria is worse with all the oil they have. Today in 2018 you find cattle roaming graphic road, in the capital of Ghana. Come to Spintex, in this day and age, one of the biggest slums in the world called Cambodian is fast growing. Something bigger than the “Sodom and Gomorra” that has become a national security threat,” A Plus lamented.
He also added that, “today 2018 when people are planning Mars mission we still build open drains. It took about 3 to 4 years to build the Eurotunnel. A 50.45-kilometre (31.35 mi) rail tunnel linking Folkestone, Kent, in the United Kingdom, with Coquelles, France. It took Ghana one and half years to renovate a five minutes’ walk Adome Bridge”.
This and many more worrying trends he [A Plus] agrees that Donald Trump’s comment is a wake-up call on Africans to hold their leaders accountable rather than attack the US President for being truthful with the African Continent.
