Ghanaian rapper Kwaw Kese has raised concerns about the alarming rise of coup d’états in the West African sub-region and issued what seems like a warning to the government of Ghana.
In a tweet, he emphasized that the instability and unrest in neighboring countries should not be taken lightly, as there is a possibility it could affect Ghana as well.
Hoping that the current government is paying attention, he urged our politicians to take appropriate measures to prevent any potential uprisings and ensure stability in the nation.
“Whatever is happening in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger is not too far away from Ghana. I hope our politicians are taking notes,” Kwaw Kese tweeted Wednesday, Aug 2.

Over the week in Niger, the military junta, now calling itself the National Council for the Safeguarding of the Fatherland, announced on Wednesday that it had captured democratically-elected President Mohamed Bazoum and removed his government from power, citing national security and corruption.
The coup is led by General Abdourahmane Tchiani, the commander of the presidential guard and a close ally of Bazoum’s predecessor, Mahamadou Issoufou.
