Former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) Ras Mubarak has penned down a letter on the day Ghanaians celebrate first leader Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
September 21 has been dedicated as a statutory holiday to remember the birthday of the country’s first President. It is Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day.
On the occasion, the late President would have been 113 were he alive, the former Kumbungu MP wrote that hearts are heavy-laden with pain as the people Kwame Nkrumah held dearly now pay for chasing after cheap stuff.
“The country you fought for is in a mess, trapped in a cycle of visionless leadership,” he wrote in his letter to Kwame Nkrumah.
“The descendants of those who fought against our independence and committed the greatest sins against our country are in charge today. How Ghanaians soon forgot them and allowed this to happen is unbelievable.”
