- Some Ghanaian social media users have replied a Kenyan who re-wrote Akufo-Addo's recent statement
- The Kenyan teacher punched holes in Akufo-Addo's official announcement about the death of JJ Rawlings
- Akufo-Addo has declared 7 days of mourning following the death of the former Ghanaian leader
Some Ghanaian netizens have defended President Akufo-Addo after he was dragged by a Kenyan teacher who re-wrote the official announcement of Rawlings's death.
The Kenyan teacher, known by the Twitter name, Mwalimu Joshua Njenga (@JKNjenga) revealed that he had marked the official communication of President Akufo-Addo and scored it 5 out of 10.
Mwalimu Joshua Njenga made a number of changes to the speech and argued that such national tragedies should not be announced anyhow.
After dissecting the announcement and tagging President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the teacher captioned it:
"Dear President Nana Akufo-Addo (@NAkufoAddo)
My students and I condole with Ghana. We have, therefore, used your statement, on the death of Jerry Rawlings, for today's marking project. Here is how it looks after surgery. Have a great day. Mwalimu Joshua Njenga".
Some Ghanaians decided not to have any of what the Kenyan teacher was doing and took on the foreigner.
One Ghanaian wrote: "No cap. Ano know why people dey reply am. A passage can be written in soo many ways. I can also rewrite his correction and it will look better . If he knows better why didn’t he become a lawyer or something and ended up a Teacher lmao"
Another Ghanaian stated: "Kenyans trying to correct Ghanaians ...not surprised cos it’s 2020"
Yet another commenter said: "You just paraphrased please. You didn't do anything. What you did was pulling down phrases and representing it with pronouns just to make it look short. If you want to teach us syntax then teach us well"
"Mr English corrector, what has good English done for you . Borrowed language wey we are all enjoying Kenyans has taken it World Cup," was another Ghanaians reply to the tweet.
Meanwhile, an epic throwback video which showed former president Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings cooking banku while in public has popped up just a day after his death.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, the former president appeared to be attending an event that was likely to be a food bazaar.
While going on rounds at the event and visiting one stall to the other, late Jerry John Rawlings made a stop at a place where a lady was preparing what looked like banku.
