Kenkey seller exposed on TV after she tried to blame Akufo-Addo for poor sales

Kenkey seller exposed on TV after she tried to blame Akufo-Addo for poor sales

A kenkey seller complained in a TV interview that the Ghanaian economy was so bad that she could not make ends meet only for another man to reveal her empty kenkey basin as proof that the economy might not be that bad for her.

In the video sighted on Facebook, the woman was left bemused and possibly slightly embarrassed by the man because his point was that she might not really be suffering like she claimed.

The interview was supposedly in the aftermath of President Nana Akufo-Addo's state of the nation address in Parliament on February 21, 2019.

It was an exercise to source from Ghanaians, their expectations and views on the state of the nation.

As is the practice with Ghanaian political culture, supporters of the reigning political party usually agree with a president's state of the nation address. Detractors, however, reject the portrait painted by the president.

By this logic, it would seem the kenkey seller might not be a fan of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). But the man who could have been a supporter of the NPP, was having none of the woman's blames on the president.

Earlier, when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo addressed the country in the house of Parliament on February 21, 2019, on the state of the nation, one thing that topped the list of desires of Ghanaians was the matter of security.
