Yew’s death grim reminder of what Ghana lost in Nkrumah – Ama Ata Aidoo

Renowned African writer Ama Ata Aidoo has told Morning Starr’s Kafui Dey that the death of Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore is a “grim” reminder of what Ghanaians missed out in Kwame Nkrumah.

“Right from when they were both alive, I had always known–at least from the news and stuff–that Lee Kuan Yew was doing for Singapore what Kwame Nkrumah was trying to do for us here in Ghana…”

She said unlike happened in Ghana where Dr Nkrumah was toppled in a coup in 1966, Singaporeans allowed Lee Kuan Yew to lead them and “didn’t coup him out and now look at Singapore and look at Ghana.”
