National communication Director of the Opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi, has been condemned by well meaning Ghanaians for insulting the memory of George Floyd in an attempt to discredit the Electoral Commission of Ghana.
The NDC firebrand in a tweet posted a cartoon of Madam Jean Mensa and President Akufo-Addo kneeling on a black male lying on his back. Madam Jean Mensa and the president can be seen in a police uniform the same way George Floyd, was pinned down to his death.
This has infuriated a lot of people and they have gone wild at Sammy Gyamfi for his cartoon picture.
George Floyd, an African-American man, died in Powderhorn, a neighbourhood south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota On May 25, 2020.
Mr Floyd was in handcuff and lying face down on a city street during his arrest for allegedly issuing a dud check of $20 at a deli.
Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, pinned him down with his knee on the neck of Floyd.
He kept his knee there for more than 8 minutes.
Other officers at the scene included Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas K. Lane who were participating in Floyd’s arrest.
A video of the incident captured by an onlooker and posted online has sparked protests in major cities across the United States and even beyond its borders to Europe.
