Manasseh Azure Awuni, a Ghanaian investigative journalist, has urged the country’s top officials as well as the citizens to look on the bright side of the frequent vulgarity of Ghanaian social critic Twene Jonas.
He stressed that the leadership must analyze the criticism’s substance to ensure that everything is done properly.
The seasoned journalist said on Facebook, “Twene Jonas is frequently harshly criticised for his obscenity. But if you set aside the insults and consider the meat of his analogies, you will agree with him.
He said those kind things about Twene Jonas after he aired a video from his trip to Germany boasting about the country’s excellent transportation infrastructure.
In his post, Manasseh stated, “In this video, I stepped out of my hotel and wanted to take the “trotro” train to a shopping centre in Bonn, Germany. See what happens under the road.”
He quizzes, “Can we ever get here? How can we when we seem to be retrogressing?”
He continued lamenting that “Are the parts of our cities and towns planned and built in the 1960s and 1970s not better than the settlements we are building today?
“Are the drains of Accra Central not covered while the new settlements, including the East Legons of this world, are built with open gutters?
Manasseh’s post concludes “Are we making any attempt to change the narrative beyond challenging the unpleasant truth?”
