Sammy Gyamfi Defends His Cartoon Agenda

The National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi has cleared the air on why he used such a sensitive animation to communicate to the public.

Following the immediate criticism he received from the public, Sammy Gyamfi explained on his Facebook page that the cartoon doesn’t mock the painful xenophobic murder of George Floyd or seek to exploit same for political capital anyway.

He compared George Floyd’s way of death to the Jean Mensah-led EC which he states are seeking to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through a xenophobic voter register.

“The potential victims of this grave injustice, are screaming for breath. They are screaming for their inalienable right to vote. Nothing wrong with sharing a cartoon which draws a parallel between the painful xenophobic murder of George Floyd, and the evil attempt by the GH EC to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through a xenophobic voter register,” his post read.

Some Ghanaians believe the picture portrayed that the Electoral Commission and the President Akufo-Addo are suffocating  Ghanaians to mastermind the 2020 election to favour the ruling government.

Sammy Gyamfi said the comparison was to indicate how serious the matter was and should not be taken for a joke.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”….he added.
