Legon Feminists Torched By “Jesus One Touch”
Listen to article

“The Executive Director for Child's Rights International, Mr. Bright Appiah, has called on advocacy groups to support a campaign by a human rights lawyer, Nana Oye Lithur, to appeal a ruling that quashed a 10-year jail sentence of Prophet Kofi Yirenkyi alias Jesus OneTouch. Nana Oye Lithur was unhappy with last Friday's ruling and is initiating moves to get the Attorney-General's office file an appeal in the case which involves the defilement of a 10-year-old girl. According to Mr. Appiah, the victim's welfare was totally neglected throughout the court hearing, hence the need for an appeal” Ghanaweb, March 31, 2012).


Where do they go
The broken-heart child
Broken-heart females
Oh! Our daughters
Who speaks for them
Who fights their battles
Where do they go
With broken hearts
With torn ligaments
With deflowered petals
Our young children
Where do they go

Ah! Our loud Feminists
They are theorizing
Oh! Groping for theories
Ah! Loud Feminists
Legon Feminists
Cape Vas Feminists
KNUST Feminists
Touched by “Jesus One Touch”
They have been torched
Like the sun on dead petals
Dull, furling and crumbled

Ah! Our loud Feminists
Preach against house-help
But perch atop house-helps
They have been touched
They have been torched
By “Jesus One Touch”
Prophet Kofi Yirenkyi
The he-goat called prophet
Animal that rapes its own
Has touched the Feminists
Has torched the Feminists
Set them ablaze in silence
Kofi Yirenkyi rapes
Rapes his own daughter
With ropes to walk free

Ah! Our loud Feminists
Preachers of equality
Of gender equality
But who exploit females
Who exploits house-helps
Who exploit maid-servants
Who exploit poor Kayayei
Who exploit their class
Who exploit bleached skin

Ah! Our loud Feminists
Torched and set ablaze
Touched by “Jesus One Touch”
Torched by “Jesus One Touch”
Set ablaze in sordid silence
Ah! Our loud Feminists
Preachers of gender equality
Set ablaze in sordid silence

Where do they go
The broken-heart child
Broken-heart females
Oh! Our daughters
Who speaks for them
Who fights their battles
Where do they go
With broken hearts
With torn ligaments
With deflowered petals
Our young children
Where do they go
