A Section of Ghanaians Hit Back At Sammy Gyamfi Over Cartoon Posting

A section of Ghanaians have hit back at the Communication Manager of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi over the posting of a cartoon on his twitter handle.

Sammy Gyamfi has however defended the posting of the cartoon, “This cartoon doesn’t mock the painful xenophobic murder of George Floyd or seek to exploit same for political capital in any way. Floyd was choked to death while screaming for breathe. In Ghana today, the Jean Mensah-led EC is seeking to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through xenophobic voter register.”

Sammy Gyamfi concluded by saying “The potential victims of this grave injustice, are screaming for breathe.  There is nothing wrong with sharing a cartoon which draws a parallel between the painful xenophobic murder of Floyd, and the evil attempt by the Ghana EC to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through a xenophobic voter register.”

Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enam Hadzide on his Facebook commented on Sammy Gyamfi’s post, “You are so message less that you had to dishonour and disrespect the memory of Floyd George?

Our politics is fast degenerating with the current opposition. And what happened to JDM’s admonishment that we should leave the EC to perform its statutory mandate?”

Kwame Gyan, who is popular on Facebook shared his opinion on the post, “Folks, this man here speaks for our largest opposition party. This is how he thinks he can use a sad case of racism and death to the benefit of his party. I will be happy of some of us his party people condemn this publicly and not the in-private condemnation they like to do.  If you don’t find anything wrong with this too, ah well, such is life.”

Bettilyna Afiah Kyerewaah also shared, “I think he just doesn’t understand it. There could be no better reason. Comparing these scenarios just means he is lost. Please forgive.”

Akua Asantewaa Opoku-Tuffour, has this to say on Sammy Gyamfi’s comment “This is the worse I have seen from him. Using the imaginary description leading to the demise of a innocent man for political wins… yet, I am sure he shouted black lives matter. Indeed it does when you can’t respect the departed. Shame of all of us.”
