February 24, the Day Progress Died in Ghana

 

Review, Feb 24, Ghanadot - On this day February 24, 1966, Lt. Colonel Kotoka, Major Akwasi Afrifa and the Armed Forces of Ghana, at the instigation and with copious help from Western interests, took upon themselves a mandate for the forceful removal from office the constitutionally elected president of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

And thus began the tailspin in the affairs of Ghana.

As one writer was to describe it later, it was also the beginning of the “celebration of traitors.” But some thought the coup was good. They naively named it the “Glorious Revolution.” To no one surprise, at least not Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's, this coup was to bring in many ills in its train; some wickedly consequential and others devastatingly worst.......

Malcolm X in Ghana

Malcolm X was assassinated  52 years ago today in NYC

MalcolmXfiles, Feb 21, Ghanadot - I don’t feel that I am a visitor in Ghana or in any part of Africa. I feel that I am at home. I’ve been away for four hundred years, but not of my own volition, not of my own will. Our people didn’t go to America on the Queen Mary, we didn’t go by Pan American, and we didn’t go to America on the Mayflower.

Revenge of the Deep State
Reason, Feb 24, Ghanadot - The chickens have come home to roost. In our misguided efforts to keep the country safe, we have neglected to keep it free. We have enabled a deep state to become powerful enough to control a powerful president. .... Now some have boasted that they can manipulate and thus control the president of the United States by selectively revealing and concealing what they know about anyone, including the president himself........More
