Cease your malicious blame games, o, ye Kumawu non-practising "professional” journalist!

Cease your malicious blame games, o, ye Kumawu non-practising \

“It takes two to tango”, so an idiom goes. How justified are you to come out now to expose a person who may have allegedly secretly spoken ill about certain individuals to you many years ago? Does it take one person to gossip? No, unless the person has gone mentally crazy. Even in such situations, the mad person talks to themselves but does not say unkind things about others.

Indeed, it takes two or more people to gossip about others. Each person in the gossip group may have something to say or contribute.

Did Auntie Rose just out of the blue come to say bad things about her half-siblings to you, o, ye Kumawu professional journalist who prides himself more in the mere possession of his journalism qualifications than the works of the qualifications?

What did she say and how did you contribute to the conversation, ye bitter man?

Whatever transpired between you, when and how long ago, is of no value and interest to the half-siblings concerned. They are all bygones. Even if they are true, they don’t want to know!

They are now more a united front, pursuing a common goal of renovating their father’s property willed to them that is now faced with destruction because of years of probable neglect and sabotage.

Say what you like, insult them as much as you can, they don’t care a hoot about your insults and threats of revelations of all that Auntie Rose may have said about them to you.

You are just an ignoble being for being unable to remain an honest confidant, despite how the situation turns.

You are acting out of anger, bitterness, greed, jealousy, and lack of knowledge about real life situations hence your established hatred towards some people, compounded by the raining of insults on them.

It takes a man to swallow his pride to say sorry when they have committed a blunder.

Will you be a man after reading my recent publications about you, or you will continue to behave the same irresponsible person wallowing in his ignorance as does the pig in its own shit in the pigsty?

In Proverbs 26:4-5, it says, – “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes. The self-confident fool thinks too highly of himself and his opinions, and he shares them freely”.

How do you relate to the quoted bible verse, checking your current behaviour regarding your badmouthing and surreal machismo attempts to prevent the beneficiaries of Nana Nyanor Payin’s testament from executing their consensus to renovate the house?

The curses you have been invoking on Auntie Rose and her half-siblings or siblings, are spoken about in Proverbs 26:2. It says, “Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,

an undeserved curse does not come to rest”.

Curse as much as you want, they will come to nought, by the grace of God!

Saying without admitting that Afua Akyeah was the first to insult you hence guilty and owes you an unreserved apology, hear and take note of what the bible says in Ephesians 4:31-32 – “31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you”. What is your view on this?

Many a person trusted you, but little did they know that you are a poisonous “green” snake under grass, hardly to be detected until today that you have emerged slithering out from underneath the grass, displayed your true being out of sheer bitterness and malevolence.

Finally, be it known to you that Jesus Christ whose blood you are repeatedly invoking to curse other people, especially Auntie Rose, came for the sinners but not the righteous like you. He never sinned but came to bear our sins on the cross.

This is shown in 2 Corinthians 5:21 – “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ”.

From the bible verse just cited, what was wrong by me asking you, Mr Innocent, to proceed to reconcile with Afua Akyeah, Madam Guilty, if I had indeed requested that of you, but which I hadn’t?

Are you better than Jesus Christ, who although had not sinned, offered himself as a sacrificial lamb for our sins and sake? Are you wiser than him, if you cannot forgive your own family member alleged to have sinned against you but choose to invoke Jesus’ blood to curse them?

You must be joking big time! That is not how the precious blood of Jesus operates.

You had better stop feeling bitter about the successes of some members of your own extended family who may be able to help you someday, God willing.

Yes, you were the first to obtain a passport in your whole family, somewhere in 1977/78. Should you simply pride yourself in its acquisition than the purpose for which it was obtained, thus, for travel?

The fact that you were the first to obtain a passport does not necessarily mean that you should be the first from your family to travel abroad. You can still be fortunate to travel abroad should you cease wishing evil for those members of your family that have travelled abroad, if that is what you are doing.

Many fathers and mothers have travelled abroad by the help of their children living abroad. The late Awo Serwaah, the late Madam Yaa Ankrah, Madam Yaa Nantakyiwaah, Madam Ama Serwaah (the late Mr Bosompem’s wife), and Auntie Yaa Saah, all of Kumawu Zongo, travelled abroad, or are living abroad, all because of their children.

You can also travel abroad if any of your children first travels abroad. Right? Why then not appreciate and accept any offer that can help your dream to come true but rather follow that path of jealousy to ruin your chances?

Sooner than later, you will regret your folly, ye proud and obstinate member of the family.

The house will be renovated whether you like it or not. If you disagree with them, go, and burn the sea, for that they care!

I am done.

Which team do you think has the higher chance of winning the 2024 elections?
