Kwaw Kese Warns Government Over Coup D’etats

Ghanaian rapper, Kwaw Kese,  has ‘warned’ the government of Ghana about the several coup d’états taking place in the West African region recently.

The rapper, who is known for his comments on governance and politics-related issues, asserts that Ghana is likely to be affected by any disruption of peace in the neighboring countries. He, therefore, hopes that the government pays attention to the plights of the people by doing what is necessary to avoid any insurrection.

“Whatever is happening in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger is not too far away from Ghana. I hope our politicians are taking notes,” Kwaw Kese tweeted.

The military junta in Niger, now referred to as the National Council for the Safeguarding of the Fatherland, declared on Wednesday that it had deposed the administration of democratically-elected President Mohamed Bazoum, citing issues of national security and corruption as justification. General Abdourahmane Tchiani, the head of the presidential guard and a close associate of Mahamadou Issoufou, Bazoum’s predecessor, is in charge of the coup.

Burkina Faso also had its second coup of the year on September 30, 2022, when Captain Ibrahim Traoré, 34, the commander of an artillery unit in the Burkinabe Armed Forces, proclaimed himself the country’s head of state.

Lieutenant Colonel Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba, the former junta leader, was overthrown in the coup. Traoré cited the deteriorating security situation in Burkina Faso as justification for his coup. In January 2022, Damiba had led a previous coup and had made a similar promise to deal with the country’s security situation.
