A Tema based supporter of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwesi Bentum has claimed that the Ewes who could not understand or speak Twi are the ones from neighboring Togo.
The “mature but ignorant” Kwesi, whose beards are turning gray made this distasteful comment under a Facebook post that GhanaVanguard.com tried unsuccessfully to identify.
According to Kwesi, Twi dominates over all other languages including Ewe which are spoken in the country and therefore anyone who can not speak or understand the Twi is not Ghanaian.
“It’s only the Ewes who are from Togo do not speak Twi so once u are Ewes and claim you don’t speak or understand Twi you are not Ghanaian because Twi dominates over the rest of languages in Ghana…,” Kwesi wrote.
Kwesi Bentum also indicated in his comments that people in the Northern Region speak and understand Twi but they do not complain.
He however asked why only the Ewes always have complains to make.
The tribal bigot ended his comment by advising the Ewes to stop complaining.
GhanaVanguard.com could not immediately tell what the Ewes were complaining about which got Kwesi’s tribal bigotry mode activated.
However, other social media users who came across the comment made by Kwesi expressed their dissatisfaction and anger towards him.
Many of them bashed him back with equally distasteful comments whiles some also called on him [Kwesi] to delete the comment.
