Desmond Cartey was right
Every year at Independence my mind turns to Desmond Cartey’s prophetic words, “All ah we tief!” He was and still is right.
Every one of us has sold this country short. At times we have remained silent when we should shout. We have agitated rather than built. We have decried, not given a full day’s work, avoided paying taxes, and worked without pride.
In short, in the words of another politician, “The problem now is not money.” It’s true; money has never been our problem. Other countries have done much more with less. So could we please confer a national award on Mr Cartey? The poor man has been vilified only because the truth makes us uncomfortable.
