The erection and unveiling of a "trouble-causing" statue at the campus of the University of Ghana, has had close to 1,300 lecturers demand its immediate removed.
According to the petitioners, not only did Gandhi practice racism towards Black South Africans when he lived there from 1893 to 1914 but he also campaigned for the maintenance of the caste system in his own country.
Former Director of the Institute of African Studies (IAS), who championed calls for the removal, Professor Akosua Adomako Ampofo, argues that the "Gandhi statue" mocks Ghana's and Africa's dignity as an independent continent stating that "to allow the statue to remain on our campus will do even more harm and make us appear to hold double standards".
