Yvonne Nelson divided her fans when she shared her political stance on the current unfolding matter over the state and how they use violence to enforce the law. The discussion was brought to light following the tragic passing of African-American, George Floyd, which social media has attributed largely to the police brutality at hands of predominantly white law-enforcement.
However when Yvonne was highlighting the same problem in Ghana, she did not blame people of another race but pinpointed the people in power for the senseless lives lost. In her tweet that divided the reactions of her tweeps she tweeted, “In Africa, it’s our politicians who do the killing- with hunger, (our) poor health systems, (the) lack of potable water, (and) poor road networks.”
……..well In africa, its our politicians who do the killing… with Hunger , poor health systems, lack of potable water, poor road networks, etc. they dont even have to touch you….their policies and greed will. They dont kill with guns!

3. Our problem is from our roots. And the only way to stop it is to a drastic change of the system. Starting with;
*our system of Government. (Tell me 1 country that has developed understand democracy?) Ghana has no vision! Our vision is the manifesto of political parties….

Exactly, you’re absolutely right. Here, @jidesanwoolu Governor of Lagos State, Nigeria increased the fare of govt owned transportation buses by 200% in a time like this. And the commercial buses is extremely HIGH. Also, the prices of food stuff is affected due to high fare.
