A TWIST IN THE TALE

A TWIST IN THE TALE

Initially I thought it was one of those inter office things between management and staff.  Indeed, I was a little taken aback when the National Democratic Congress (NDC) joined the fray and pointed fingers at the ruling government as being behind moves to impeach Madam Charlotte Osei, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC).

Why should a mere petition by staff of instititution against the head of that institution be construed as political, I wondered? In any case, what does the NDC stand to gain by defending the embattled EC chairperson? Couldn’t they have used all that energy to manage the deep differences in the party?

Then like a bolt from nowhere, the EC chairperson comes out all guns blazing fingering two of her deputies in the persons of Amadu Seidu, Commissioner of Operations and Georgina Opoku Amankwah responsible for Corporate Services as being behind the agitations.

The allegations of rot, Corruption etc from the embattled chairperson and her deputies, is astounding.  I tell you what, something in the EC saga stinks to high heaven. Little wonder therefore, that there are calls to investigate the independent body.

I tell you what again if we couldn’t investigate the Ghana Football Association (GFA) despite the numerous allegations, I don’t believe calls to investigate the EC would materialise!

By the way, what’s happening to Ghanaian womanhood? When did it become that easy for our ladies to remove their panties and parade their nakedness in public without batting an eye? What sort of life is that and where is it coming from?

Why? What? When? How? Are they doing all this so that they would be classified as celebrities? Whatever happened to the famed proud Ghanaian womanhood? Don’t understand anything now!

The Pre-season in Europe is off to a flier and teams are criss-crossing Co tinents to honour matches.  Interest in mere presence season matches is very high even in our parts of the world.

Strange that with all our problems, we still find time to follow pre-season matches as if the World Cup is on. Imagine showing friendly pre-season matches Live in Ghana! We don’t have problems at all!

Meanwhile, the transfer of players is on and teams are trying to strengthen their squads to stand them in good stead when the new season begins.

The favourite teams to annex the title come season’s end in England namely champions Chelsea,  Manchester United and Manchester City have waded into the transfer market and spent heavily on players like Romelu Lukaku,  Alvaro Morata, Danilo, Antonio Rudiger, Bernardo Silva and Ben Mendy.

It’s the twists and turns in the market that makes it very interesting. Initially, most sports pundits tipped Lukaku to end up at Chelsea with Morata going go United. But when the chips were down, there was a twist in the tale, and Lukaku found himself at the Theatre of Dreams for a cool £75m while Morata ended up at the Bridge a little over £70m plus add-ons.

The market is still open for a few more weeks so I guess there would be more twists in the tale before the market finally shuts!

These things are interesting.  You could say a twist in the tale or a twist in the tail and mean about the same thing. Or is there a difference?
