Ghana’s Ambassador to South Africa is a clown; his immaturity is remarkable – KSM


Renowned actor, satirist, and television host, Kweku Sintim Misa (KSM), has taken a swipe at Ghana’s Ambassador to South Africa, George Ayisi Boateng, describing him as a clown and immature.

KSM’s comment was a direct reaction to Mr Ayisi-Boateng’s statement that his topmost priority as a diplomat is to help solve the problems of members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) before any other Ghanaian.

While addressing some members of the Tertiary Students’ Confederacy Network (TESCON) at a ceremony to usher in fresh students of Kumasi Technical University into the network over the weekend, Mr Ayisi-Boateng said he prioritizes members of his party and its student wing in his dealings in South Africa.

“This government is doing its best to create job opportunities and me for instance, I told my people over there [that] it is because of NPP that I’m here so the NPP man is my priority. I told them when NDC was in power it was Kwesi Ahwoi who was there, now we are in power, so Ayisi-Boateng is here with you. My topmost priority is the problems of an NPP person before any other Ghanaian, take it or leave it” he said.

“Indeed I’m not boasting but I’ve started meeting the NPP groups. Every weekend I meet some group members and I tell you if I had my way, every job opportunity that will come will go to a TESCON member before any other person. And I know my colleague appointees also have the same feeling except that because of IMF we cannot do anything now…,” he added.

In a tweet, KSM described the remarks as infantile.
