Unlike Mahama, I have difficulty understanding Akufo-Addo’s English – Kumchacha

Prophet Nicholas Osei, also known as Kumchacha, the founder and head of Heaven’s Gate Ministries, has stated that he finds it difficult to comprehend President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when he talks in English.

He pointed out that the typical Ghanaian, who hasn’t made much progress in schooling, finds it challenging to grasp President Akufo-Addo’s messages because of the slang in his English.

Prophet Kumchacha said that while previous presidents’ English, such as that of John Agyekum Kufuor, the late John Evans Atta-Mills, and John Dramani Mahama, is clear, Akufo-Addo’s is a little difficult to comprehend because of the slang.

Unlike Mahama, I have difficulty understanding Akufo-Addo’s English – Kumchacha

Prophet Kumchacha revealed in an interview with Okay FM that the majority of Ghanaians who do not have advanced degrees find it difficult to comprehend President Akufo-Addo’s English.

“If you listen to President Akufo-Addo when he is speaking and you don’t listen to him attentively, you will struggle to understand even a word of what he is saying. His English is slang, not the British English. Even when he says ‘fellow Ghanaians’ sometimes I don’t hear it properly. It is not only me who struggles to comprehend his English. There was a time when market women in Ghana held a press conference to tell Akufo-Addo to speak Twi in his address because they didn’t understand his English,” he said.

Prophet Kumchacha said that, despite the fact that President Akufo-Add speaks well, his English is considerably different from that of the country’s prior leaders.

“When former President, Kufour speaks English I understand, the late president John Evans Atta-Mills speaks I understand likewise John Dramani but I struggle to understand Akufo-Addo’s own because it sounds like slang. The way he speaks English is nice though but I don’t understand.”
