Waterz Yidana, a popular Ghanaian author has backed famous social media activist, Twene Jonas, who has been constantly pestering Ghanaian leaders to fix the country.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his personal Facebook handle, Waterz indicated that although many people attack the activist for being a bit too harsh, he is actually doing the right thing.
According to the renowned writer, Jonas is a revolutionist who has taken the path of people like Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, Steve Biko, and Julius Malema.
He added that Ghana would be much better off if more young people like Twene Jonas spring up to speak without fear.
"If we can all get angry like Twene Jonas and speak the hard truth without fear of suffering or dying, the country will be changed in just a few years to come. We must encourage confident people who speak up to continue speaking, so that we can have a better country, not what we have now," he said.
Waterz Yidana also added that the archaic culture of respecting elders even when they are wrong must stop as the country can only develop if we fearlessly tell our leaders to fix the country.
