Akufo-Addo’s administration has been empty – MzVee
Ghanaian songstress, Vera Hamenoo-Kpeda popularly known as MzVee has fumed at the reckless spending by the Akufo-Addo government.
“I don’t even know what they do with some of the amounts they collect from IMF with the huge sums I have not even heard of before,” she remarked in an interview on Property FM in Cape Coast.
MzVee who recently arrived in the country after spending four months in the USA said there’s nothing to show for the huge sums of money the government receives.
She posited “The amounts that they are collecting are so huge that I have never heard of before so if you are collecting all that money but we don’t even see anything happening in the country”.
She added that the nature of Ghanaian roads are so bad.
“When you travel outside and you’re landing in a foreign country you see the layouts and the roads nicely done but when you are landing in Ghana it’s so bad,” MzVee lamented.
In addition, the musician said citizens must be blamed for the flooding in Accra adding that, we can’t blame everything on the government.
She lamented profusely the recent floods in the Greater Accra Region and blamed citizens for the disposal of plastic waste and bottles.
She said “We can’t blame everything on the government although the government is to be blamed a lot but I feel the citizens must also take the blame. I saw people posting floods and stuff like that, yes our drainage system is really horrible and the government has to look at that”
“But If you see the amount of plastic bottles I don’t think the government came to put them there so I think we’re all to blame for these things,” she concluded.
Global Way of Celebration
She further stated that the phenomenon of celebrating the dead more than the living is everywhere and not just a preserve of Ghana.
“Celebrating the dead more than the living is not just a Ghanaian thing but it’s everywhere and it’s a very normal thing,” she said.
According to the Ghanaian artiste, the death of Nigerian singer, Mohbad has become a topical issue due to the circumstances surrounding it.
Hundreds of young Nigerians in white shirts converged in Lagos for a candlelight procession in honour of the Nigerian musician who died mysteriously on September 12
Reacting to the news and activities after the death of the musician, she observed, “I think for that guy the circumstances surrounding his death and all that I think people were really angered by that. So it makes the whole issue so sensitive that people want to talk about him more than it would have been”.
