OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Joshua Boye-Doe, otherwise known as Kalyjay on Twitter, the American microblogging and social networking service, is the brain behind the #FixTheCountry social media protest.
Some unhappy Ghanaians have been venting their anger over what they say is the failure on the part of successive administrations to improve the lives of the citizenry through the Kalyjay inspired protest.
Hundreds of thousands of posts have been made on Twitter and other social media platforms highlighting some of the challenges with the Ghanaian economy.
Kalyjay expressed extreme fear for his life since the campaign went viral. In his latest tweet, he asked for prayers pointing to the fact all is not well.
He wrote in the tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh that: “Pray for me.”
The post generated massive reaction and show of support and YEN.com.gh compiled a few.
OseiLiah said: “I am sure you prayed into this before taking the move. One thing growing up I have come to agree with is when the masses are with you be careful.”
@BaaduHenry said: “The Lord is with you your legacy will never be forgotten.”
@NarteyOscar observed: “If they were smart enough, they will not make an enemy of you... They would rather protect you cos if they make that stupid mistake and we hear fiiii like the way they did to the late Ahmed Suale, they can't contain the fallout, the police themselves will run from their weapons.”
@FaithAmpadu stated: “Why would u want to carry all the burden? The entire youth needs help. Not NDC nor NPP. If you need representatives I think there are countless number of people here.Jst open up on your possible meetings with any party in regards to #FixTheCountry I’m sure u won’t be alone.”
@kofi_wins said: “Yeah Man let’s support Him in prayers ..today at work some npp people were dragging him , saying he has gone to collect car den money from Ndc ..they dirty his nama basaa to the older folks who don’t know him and wanted to know all about this Online demonstration.”
Meanwhile, in an earlier YEN.com.gh report, the director of communications at Ghana Gas Company Limited, Ernest Owusu Bempah, has taken the conveners of the social media campaign ‘Fix the country’ to the cleaners for demanding improvement in the livelihoods of the citizenry.
In a scathing Facebook post on popular individuals who have joined the campaign, the vociferous communications director said he had been holding himself “from getting into the gutter with these self-styled comedians who dabbles in social media politicking.”
