Corruption is a highfalutin word for stealing. A “corrupt public official” is just another way of saying a “thief in public office.”
Most thieves in public office in Ghana are either Christians or Muslims. They claim they fear the spiritual retribution of Jesus, or Allah, but actually they feel no retribution or compunction after stealing from the state.
Even in traditional Africa, the chiefs who converted to Christianity (Western Catholicism to be precise) are some of the most corrupt, block-headed men in the world. Some sit on actual gold chairs, yet they ask for loans (in paper pounds sterling) from the British Queen who sits on wooden stools.
Western Christianity is the poison that entered the veins of Africans. Before it, it was a virulent form of Islam that came via North Africa. The African is the originator of both religions (very long ago), yet he is poisoned by the returning mutated forms of these religions. The African is not aware that what he left behind (very long ago), by and large, had been picked up by others outside of Africa, and loaded with various poisons. The African is unaware of the stupor into which he has been plunged by the poisonous forms of Islam and Christianity now pervasive on the continent.
Jesus claims, it is only through The Christ that a man can reach Heaven after death. Once the African accepts Jesus the Christ, he no longer is African. He is cut from his African ancestry. He can no longer return to the Ancestral World. He must go to Heaven instead, which houses angels other than his Ancestors. Once an African man accepts Jesus the Christ, that man can no longer die and commune with his great grandmother in the Afterlife. He no longer answers to his Ancestors, but to some figment of his imagination, called God. The African Christian is a man in opposition to himself, to his history, and to his Ancestors.
That is why the African Christian in public office (chief, or president, or minister, or headmaster) is so easily swayed by the Devil. He will torch the dying memories of his Ancestors, especially the memories of his great grandmother and steal millions of dollars from public coffers in the name of setting up his family (wife, mistresses and children) for life. He is no longer afraid of the retribution of the Ancestors. He no longer must answer to them. Even when he dies, he no longer goes to the Ancestral World, where he meets great grandmother, and where he must answer for his foolishness.
Jesus the Christ has saved many African Christians in public office, or it has saved the corrupt public officials, thieves really, from the retribution of the Ancestors. When they die, Jesus will take them to Heaven or Hell, away from the wages of their stupidity in the Ancestral World. Instead of answering to his Ancestors, who watch him daily from the World of the Ancestors, the African Christian in public office answers to Jesus from Norway, who watches on with a smile while the African loots millions from the public coffers.
The returning virulent religions of Islam and Christianity are just two of the poisons we take daily to our deaths.
But we can change. We can get rid of real thieves. Bring the Ancestors back into Action. Bring Back Our Ancestors! Resurrect them. Let us behold our Transfiguration. Bring back the Memories of our great grandmothers!
