There hasn't been a single day since American-based Ghanaian Twene Jonas began his Facebook live streaming in which he hasn't said anything nasty about practically every leader in the country. Some of what he says is without a doubt correct. His criticism on some reckless local chiefs who are involved in galamsey sparked a flurry of controversy, with some Ghanaian chiefs in America threatening to repatriate him to Ghana.
As a powerful figure who is known for chastising Ghanaian politicians in order to encourage them to build the country, he would be prudent to lead by example. Instead, the young man is frequently seen in his videos boasting about having too much money, luxury cars, and other expensive items when he could have given the money to a family member in Ghana because he does not trust any politician in the country to use the money for cleaning gutters, purchasing school desks and computers for deprived communities, borehole drilling, or purchasing bulletproof for security purposes.
His latest Lamborghini, which he claims is worth over a million dollars, could be used to construct an entire secondary school in Ghana or even a contemporary market for some villages. He was seen in a black G wagon Mercedes-Benz that he claimed to have purchased just a few days ago in one of his most recent videos, which is still relatively unknown.
He would garner huge respect and popularity if he completed at least one project in any section of the country to relieve people's problems, but he has done none of them and instead continues to criticize Ghanaian leaders. He should offer an example for the leaders to follow, even if they are unsure of how to do so.
As a citizen of the Republic of Ghana, this is my honest opinion.
