• Sir John, passed away on Wednesday at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
• The relationship between Sir John and General Mosquito is what politics is supposed to mean, that you have political differences but act in decorum.
Celebrated broadcaster and host of Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Kwami Sefa Kayi, affectionately called Chairman General has advised the youth in politics to draw lessons from the character and personality of the late NPP bigwig, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie.
Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John, passed away on Wednesday at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
According to sources, the CEO of the Forestry Commission tested positive for Covid-19 and succumbed to complications of the disease while undergoing treatment at the ICU of the hospital.
Two politicians, different parties but best friends
NDC General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Sir John are bosom friends despite their political affiliations.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia, also called General Mosquito, overwhelmed with grief, shared a touching revealing story about his late friend.
“ . . I was deeply touched when he (Sir John) came to stay with me for 3 days after the death of my mother . . . he could have stayed in a hotel when everyone else had left but he came to live in my house. We ate the same food and did a lot of things together. The Pentecostal pastor who presided over the funeral, as well as sympathisers who were present were amazed by his gesture that General Secretaries of the two rival parties would get along so well,"he wrote.
Kwami Sefa Kayi scolds arrogant youth
Chairman General reprimanded the young people, who in the name of politics, disrespect and insult elderly people.
According to him, the relationship between Sir John and General Mosquito is what politics is supposed to mean, that you have political differences but act in decorum.
He advised the youth to stop the politics of insult and wipe off their arrogant disposition saying "Ghanaians will attest that one person who has lost his brother is General Mosquito. I am sure that we remember their political fight. They will fight but immediately come back together after their arguments. These are two leaders with one in NDC and the other in NPP. There is no way General Mosquito would vote for Nana Addo and there's no way Sir John would ever vote for Mahama but still, it is not even the close friends that I am looking; I'm looking at the maturity to agree that I like this and you like that but we don't hate each other," he said.
"This should serve as a lesson to the youth who disrespect and insult adults because they're following politicians. It should be a lesson to show them that life is short . . . With some of them, it is some adults who are behind and stimulating them. That is what creates the tension. At the end of the day, it is all about political power. That's all it is," he accentuated.
