Comedienne Afia Schwarzenegger believes spending millions of Ghana cedis for Ghana @ 60 celebrations this year is not needed now when citizens in the country are suffering.
The outspoken TV and radio presenter explaining why she thinks this year’s Independence Day celebration is not necessary stated clearly that nothing shows the country is worth celebrating. Speaking to MzGee on Hitz FM’s Showbiz This Week entertainment show, she opined that the country is cursed.
Detailing her comment that Ghana is cursed, she told MzGee “if your 60 years mother is acting the way Ghana is acting, is she not cursed? I always see Ghana as my mother who is 69. I don’t see my mother going to Nigeria to prostitute for gas. I don’t see my mother jumping from one country to the other begging. If you will see Ghana’s name in the international news, then it’s we begging or making mockery of ourselves.
Afia further advised that Ghanaians should pray for the country to develop instead of the leaders organising an event to drag school children to stand in the sun for hours when they the government officials will have dinner at night.
She also asked clean up exercise to be done to keep the country clean instead of celebrating Ghana @ 60.
“In two weeks from now, we should expect the 60 years cloth and dinner. We will invite Head of States to this country for the event. We will also need security for this same event.
Why can’t we do a cleanup exercise for the soldiers to dispose of the dirt so that we won’t have another flooding in June” angry Afia Schwarzenegger said.
