Above Article Ad

What about the other chiefs from that Zoe Town, the man who spoke during our last village birthday, ehn they also joined da chief there to chop the town money, why have they not call for da other man, because they know what they did there. My pekin, be careful ay, the old people say the same rope da hang baboon can hang monkey oo.

Dear Father,

So they say it was na easy at the Traditional Council this week ehn? They say those chiefs didn’t play with the Old Lady Lieutenant them there oo. Walaye! They say it was na easy. I say they say, na me, they say the chiefs them ordered the people to be dragged to the cool sea side beach resort for 48 hours. Already the people fini vex with the Old Lady in the first place because they say she want to reduce their size.  I could imagine. Yes, oo, Father.

So they say wha the people did now? Oh, you didn’t hear the news; they say the people chopped some of our village money that was actually meant to help lift us from our poverty small. Is that so, yes, oo, Fahter. They say the people had all kinds of things on the list to justify the thing, but it looks like you can’t teach old dog new trick they say. So the chiefs were able to recognize the thin that it was fake.
But is it true da the chiefs them were vex because people say the Old lady people them na give them (chiefs) some of the money? Ah, me da one I don’t know oo.

But what about the other places in the village, especially where da other small looking chief with the plenty grey hair coming from, ehn the other man their chopping all the village money on that side, why has he not drag him to the Traditional Council? Or is it because his man there is giving him lay thing or what about the other chiefs then from da other village where the people there sef already vex with the Old Lady.

Wait na you vex because the people make your god-ma to sleep in jail? Godma? Father forbid! If we are talking fairness, let apply the same measure. So, are they telling us that only these people chopped the money that was meant to develop their towns? I…No, you tell me. What about the other one then who did almost similar thing, the chiefs from the Great Walking village who also took their money to buy machine, have they seen it?

What about the other chiefs from that Zoe Town, the man who spoke during our last village birthday, ehn they also joined da chief there to chop the town money, why have they not call for da other man, because they know what they did there. My pekin, be careful ay, the old people say the same rope da hang baboon can hang monkey oo.

You know Father, da is why, I always say most of the people in this village who can open their lousy mouth to shout fairness, and preach transparency and justice are just pockets and bellies campaigners. You saw what happened to me in particular, a man who poses himself as a human right campaigner and getting money from Uncle Sam Cousins them to run an NGO, he now calls private company, with separate payrolls, if somebody had done these to another he would have jumped with his pen to write nonsense, making himself look like the good guy, bullshit!. What hypocrisy? Father, is it really hypocrisy, or greed, ( what some now termed as interest and the desire to satisfy one’s belly and rain terror, yet we only see other people’s dirt and not ours.).

You know Father that is why I always asked this question, who watches the watchman? The chiefs them actually played their watchman roll the other day but who is watching them. When they have on our village list of employee 15-20 people but you find out that most of those names are their relatives and they signed on their behalf. Father, how do you call that one? Ah, asked my short friend from da place there he the one will give you the right terminology, me da na my area. If you chop oo, you jerk oo or you put it on something else, he knows all the various names, da he the one the village paying to do da, ehn.

Da wha me, I like Professor Moses Duopu business, he says cassava leaf is not for goat alone, human being can eat it too.  So when the chiefs them grapping the Old Lady Lieutenants and putting lacking them out at the cool South Beach Resort, they should na forget da the village people are also looking at the employment listing  and all the little corners they have been cutting around here. Father, they should remember that what is good for the goose is good for the garner.

Anyway, Father, I have to go me I am looking for the new political party they have in town here, the way I broke already sef, maybe they will give me small thing, because I hear they na easy. I understand the Old lady sef shaking, small, small, but hey, she’s an old hand, so let us look. But I know Vayhoo is the most feared right now.
