Mia Goes To Ghana

 

As part of the Year of Return and the visit of H.E, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to Barbados in June this year, the Prime Minister of Barbados, H.E. Mia Mottley, arrives in Ghana today for a 3-day visit.

The visit also forms part of the bilateral discussions started during the President’s visit to Barbados.

She will be in Assin Manso where a Durbar of Chiefs will be held in her honour at the forecourt of the Assin Manso Ancestral River Site.

Remains of an unknown enslaved African from Barbados brought along with the Prime Minister will be buried at the site.

This will bring to three, the number of African ancestral remains buried at the Assin Manso slave river site.

Prime Minister Mottley will also visit the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and participate in the Damba Festival in Yendi over the weekend. Her delegation includes Foreign Affairs, protocol, and business leaders.

According to the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Hon. Barbara Oteng Gyasi, Ghana’s tourism sector seeks to deepen its interest in the Carribean with Barbados as a key gateway.

The Coordinator of the Year of Return and CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Akwasi Agyeman, says the visit highlights the importance of the Year of Return in the Global African discussion.

    I have said before, whereas Stuart was grossly incompetent, the president has a wider idea of her place in history; she believes she is entitled, that she is smarter than the others, that she deserves a world stage.
    She has no interest in policy making since it involves details, which she no doubt finds boring; I would go as far as saying she is no good at it, which is why the presidential style of governing, rather than being prime ministerial is her preferred style.
    A prime minister is first among equals, note the word EQUALS, while a president just employs flunkies to do the dirty work while s/he grabs the headlines.
    How many of these decisions are made in Cabinet? Despite all this, I am surprised that intelligent, self-respecting young men and woman could willingly agree to stay in such a Cabinet being humiliated almost every day. It will end in tear.

  • There are many who find this story implausible. And with good reason. As has been mentioned by several commentators Mia did not communicate her intentions of the significance of her trip to Ghana.
    The majority of us are of
    slave ancestry. The bones of a slave been repatriated back to mother Africa is highly symbolic. Such an act required an appropriate service in Barbados commerating the memory of this displaced soul. I am afraid that Mia has desecrated our people’s history by her actions. She is offering up bones of a slave in order to facilitate economic trade with Ghana.

    Mia where are your morals? Is there no limit to your ambitions? Why are you mocking your own people and their history.

    Go inside the Church and you will find above the pulpit this memorial to members of the Holder Family, Quakers.

    Not too long ago the graves at Holders Plantation (Holder’s Hill if you like) stood in the way of development and were going to be pelted one side or rather moved with the earth to please.

    Someone stepped in and the contents were moved to Castle Grant.

    It is my belief they were the marker of the plantation burying ground at Holders where other Quakers and slaves were buried.

    With the earth, their remains were moved to please,

    Only God knows where please is.

    Quite apart from the fact that Quakers were often not buried in Anglican Churches by choice here is another reason why there are few gravestones in the Parish Churches in Barbados or for that matter anywhere which date back to the 17th century.

  • And this is why de ole man described this act with such distasteful language.

    It is Desecration of A Gravesite!

    Mugabe Amin Mottley has mutilated the body of a person whose identity is unknown for a tokenism of such a despicable nature THAT IT COMPARES TO NECROPHILIA!

    she has fvucked the nations of Barbados AND KENYA while using a dead body, albeit bones!

    Where is our local equivalent to this statute?

    “…Defacing or desecrating grave sites.

    (a) It is unlawful to willfully:
    (1) Throw, place or put any refuse, garbage or trash in or on any cemetery.
    (2) Take away, disturb, vandalize, destroy or change the location of any stone, brick, iron or other material or fence enclosing a cemetery without
    authorization of law or consent of the surviving spouse or next of kin of the deceased.
    (3) Take away, disturb, vandalize, destroy, or tamper with any shrubbery, flowers, plants or other articles planted or placed within any cemetery to designate where human remains are interred or to preserve…”

    This is disturbing at so many levels but it shows for ALL WUNNA BAJANS TO SEE FINALLY what de ole man has been shouting out to wunna for years now!

    So what are you implying here, Dear Dir John?

    By stating that Quakers (the majority of slave owners in early Barbados) were buried along with their slaves in the same plots of land like the pharaohs of old are you insinuating that there is 50% chance the bones taken to Ghana were those of a slave owner from England instead of those a slave captured and shipped from the Gold Coast in the 17th or 18th Century?

    Should those bones turn out to be those of a long-dead Quaker what an embarrassment that would be on the Karmic wheel of disgrace!

    Along with its reputation as the model slave society according to Willie Lynch’s specifications, Barbados would also become infamous as the country which has created the fourth nastily embarrassing angle in that profitably famous Trans-Atlantic Triangular Trade.

    You date yourself by your knowledge of AND ABILITY TO REPEAT that limmerick.

    But let me continue, if I may on a salient point you made about these bones.

    I will use an internet quote for this comment which deals with falsifying items of antiquity

    “…The reasons for perpetrating hoaxes and forgeries range as widely as the kinds of fakes. Common motives for making bogus artifacts include publicity and self-promotion, monetary gain, practical jokes, and revenge, but some fakers have had the goal of supporting their own theories about the human past. Fakes have often been inspired by nationalism, with patriotic perpetrators boosting their country through spurious links to past civilizations.

    People are taken in by hoaxes and fakes for many reasons.

    Successful bogus artifacts often match expectations or preconceived ideas of antiquities.

    Spectacular fakes have worked because those who buy them are blinded by their own pride of ownership–and the higher the price tag, the harder it is to make an embarrassing admission that it’s a fake…”

    Given the stealth with which this operation was conducted DO YOU THINK THAT MUGABE WILL BE ABLE TO COVER THIS FALSITY under a similar veil?

    Barbadian slaves were being given their freedom from the 1650’s.

    Quakers at it again!!

    By the time 1833/4 rolled around emancipation while important, was not a big deal.

    You can actually see the effect in the different bahaviours of “black” Barbadians today.

    I have an ancestor who was freed c. 1802 but by 1817 was owning slaves.

    If you go and check the genealogy of “upper” class “black” Bajan families you will likely find an ancestor freed well before emancipation and the need for a family and family strategies of survival.

    They were no longer provided with food. lodging, clothing and medical attention.

    Those families got the advantage of having to adapt to freedom long before most Bajans did.

    They had a head start if you like.

    King Dyal for example came, I believe, from a family that was freed early.

    I can find Dyal’s described as free from the 1700’s.

    He was an extreme.

    Trevor Marshall calls him racist because he refers to the young “black” boys who chose to torment him as “black cattle”.

    I think what he was telling them was way above their paygrade.

    What you will find within that “black” “upper” class are also those who lost the plot … just like you will find within the “clearer” classes those who should really know better!!

    Both sets lost the ability to lead and became part of the herd.

    An excellent call there, Donna!

    Emancipation of the mind of the black Bajan is the sine qua non before any real cultural and economic enfranchisement can take place.

    If black Bajans cannot even look the white man in the eyes while interacting with him on a daily basis, how on the Mother Africa’s earth can they be expected to feel a sense of confidence and pride in any interactions with their ancestral brothers and sisters whom are currently viewed by black Bajans as ‘beneath them’ in the sight of the white man’s image of God?

    Scientific proof (not through the Adam& Eve fable) of their anthropological origins through a national programme of DNA testing would act as the real cultural catharsis needed among the vast majority of black Bajans who for all ‘slave-minded’ intents and religiously-brainwashed purposes hate themselves for being of African ancestry.

    Just look at the vast quantity of mock hair regaled on their heads when God has provided them with the perfect crown of ‘nappy’ curls (along with their extra share of melanin) to insulate their skulls and skins from His ‘burning’ rays while they walk the fields and mountains of black Mother Earth (Pachamama) from whose womb all mankind has evolved.

    @Pieces, thanks for your blunt honesty. I believe that reasonable people can fully appreciate the Mottley GRANDSTANDING …it was described by you above quite well per: “…Common motives for making bogus artifacts include publicity and self-promotion […and] the goal of supporting their own theories about the human past.” …… This episode appears to focus on those aspects.

    I am AMAZED to understand that there was NO skeletal date verification/some form of DNA validation or NO suitable event with local historians …. and when one considers this reciprocal visit was more than 1 year in its planning it certainly gives you EVERY reason to condemn this seemingly hasty act as “… akin to whoredom…”

    So….surely the narrative you expose re …“[s]he insults the bones of our ancestors” is valid.

    However, the other narrative @Pieces is that the meglomaniac that is this PM appreciated the profound scope of such an ancestral “reinterment” in reestablishing a bridge of relations with Ghana and beyond in Africa.

    You are absolutely right that MAM (like Trump or Erdoğan or Putin or Johnson as examples) have deeply rooted personality flaws which likely will never be ameliorated … however it does NOT mean that individual acts (despite being badly handled) cannot accrue significant benefit to the nation she (they) govern!

    Prosecute her boldly sir as she can be villainous but don’t lets spite our face by slicing our nose!

    ****@The Blogmaster, interesting perspectives re “On emancipation day the gathering at the Bussa statue hardly numbers 30, yet the fake outrage….”

    Why do you see the valid condemnation of a hastily done unearthing of ancestral remains, their preparation and transportation over thousands of miles as “yet fake outrage” compared to those who annually support the Bursa tribute! Respectfully bro but that’s flawed reasoning

    …. If you take that 30 something (or a similarly very interested number) and place their voice on BU you could easily generate 3X comments of what we have so far….. so I don’t see how the well formed critiques of HOW the PM went about this adventure is “fake outrage”.

    I disagree with the synocophantic BS political comments from some sources and the ‘I hate everything this crook does’ from colleague @Pieces but alas I DO agree with him that she is crooked …. I simply also believe that she can still do very practical things that benefit us all DESPITE whatever is her personal motivations … nothing fake about his criticisms, however!

    “NEW YORK – A memorial of granite, stone and water was dedicated Friday at a burial ground where hundreds of slaves and other blacks were interred two centuries ago then forgotten as lower Manhattan expanded above their remains.

    The ceremony featuring the singing of spirituals and a spoken word piece by actor Avery Brooks came more than 16 years after the African Burial Ground was rediscovered.

    “The tragedy was that for so many years, for centuries, people passing by this site did not know about the sacrifices they had made,” said Rodney Leon, designer of the memorial. “Now we have an opportunity to right some of the wrongs of the past.”

    The entryway to the memorial is called “The Door of Return” — in contrast with the door of no return, the name once given to the departure points where slaves were shipped from Africa to North America.

    Alongside the 20-foot-high chamber of gray stone sits a circular court, with a map inscribed into the center. The space has seven grassy mounds marking where some of the disinterred bones were reburied four years ago”

    The few slaves who were freed in wills and deeds going back to the 1600’s I believe became Christians.

    They heard the Word and responded.

    No one can force anyone to become a Christian and no one can play at being a Christian.

    If anything what you are saying demonstrates the reluctance of many of the early slaves to become Christian.

    By the time the Anglicans, Methodists and Moravians came along with a set program to follow to become a member of their Church, enough generations had passed to make becoming a Christian more palatable to slaves.

    Quakers did not believe in any sort of baptism, Anglicans. Methodists and Moravians did.

    Adults became “convinced” when presented by the “Truth”.

    So for example, Mary Fisher went to Constantinople to “convince” the sultan of the “Truth”.

    After she returned to England she wrote “Now returned into England… have I borne my testimony for the Lord before the king unto whom I was sent, and he was very noble unto me and so were all that were about him… they do dread the name of God, many of them… There is a royal seed amongst them which in time God will raise. They are more near Truth than many nations; there is a love begot in me towards them which is endless, but this is my hope concerning them, that he who hath raised me to love them more than many others will also raise his seed in them unto which my love is. Nevertheless, though they be called Turks, the seed of them is near unto God, and their kindness hath in some measure been shown towards his servants.”

    John Perot went to Rome to “convince” the Pope.

    Needless to say the sultan and the Pope demurred as did I believe most slaves.

    But you can see the process in the case of the first two examples.

    For clarity sake and if I may use the phrasing of the doc GP the @Waru post of 12:20 PM is a non sequitur … in other terms its just a completely illogical comparison.

    1.The remark by TLSN that “[t]he bones of a slave been repatriated back to mother Africa is highly symbolic. Such an act required an appropriate service in Barbados commerating the memory of this displaced soul” is validly made.

    2.However that has NOTHING to do with the NY scenario.

    3.What we know (or don’t) about this disinterment is very little but we are NOT dealing with the wholescale desecration (removal of remains to erect new buildings) of a large burial site which WAS the NY case.

    4.This is the removal of two deceased ‘slaves’ (de facto under official seal of a national governing authority) and the remains are being REBURIED at a HALLOWED specifically designed burial ceremonial site back in their ancesteal home.

    5.That is hardly the context of desecration. It may be poorly handled; crass, selfish political maneuvering even but it’s illogical to compare two remains removed to a HALLOWED burial site to the unearthing of a long forgotten burial site during an excavation and the subsequent creation of a suitable memorial at the site to honour those buried there.

    6.The NY situation is COMPLETELY different. In short, that location in Manhattan was in fact an EXTENSIVE graveyard of THOUSANDS on African descendants…the building contractors apparently expected to find some remains but had planned to disinter and reinter respectfully to another grave site…BUT the graveyard was significantly more extensive than they expected. This led to protracted negotiations over many years and resulted in the burial memorial being incorporated into a redesigned buildings/site.

    7.How does any of that equate to our local situation beyond the simple common fact that remains were disinterred???

    8.As i understand it the Ghanian burial site was created to honour the deceaed slaves who left from that point to their dreadful future; it’s not an original gravesite but is yet comparable as a special memorium to honour the memory of African decendants to the NYC site.

    8.Lets get our facts clear, please!

    Bakra Johnny ma boy, what are you trying to argue here?

    Are you saying that the black slaves could have secured their freedom like their white indentured labour counterparts by merely accepting the Word of the Quaker god and become a ‘Christian plantation’ labourer?

    Even the Bajan equivalent of Uncle Tom our own Dr. GP would find that hard to swallow.

    Come on, John, and be a real supremacist man! Why notj ust admit that slavery ended in Barbados and in the West Indies because of economics and not religion. The industrial revolution did in slavery in the West Indies; not preaching hypocrites hiding behind the cloak of Quakerism in their secret meeting rooms.

    Ligon was in Barbados just before Quakers came so this is a Puritan take on Christianising slaves.

    “Ligon wrote that one particular slave was curious about his compass and wanted to understand how it worked. He entreated Ligon to convert him to Christianity because ‘he thought to be a Christian was to be endued with all those knowledges he wanted’.

    Soon afterward, Ligon approached the slave’s master and pleaded the slave’s case. In response, Ligon was told that ‘the people of that Iland were governed by the Lawes of England, and by those Lawes, we could not make a Christian a Slave’. Realising that the slave owner had misunderstood his intention, Ligon pointed out that his ‘request was far different from that,’ and that he ‘desired him to make a Slave a Christian’, not a Christian a slave.

    The slave owner, at last comprehending the issue at hand, responded that being once a Christian, he could no more account him a Slave, and so lose the hold they had of them as Slaves, by making them Christians; and by that means should open such a gap, as all the Planters in the Iland would curse him.

    To David the Blogmaster: I drop this post here simply because there is a minor nexus wid moving from one country to another (well and death too) …otherwise it ain’t got one pang to do did MAM n Ghana really.

    I was most bemused to read this headline on the legal issues site (lawfareblog) today: ‘Trinidad’s Islamic State Problem’.

    Of course you have created blogs on this topic previously so the issue is well known here but the article refreshes the problem facing Dr. Rowley and his fellow Trinbagonians and awakens us to some pressing realities.

    According to the essayist “in 2017, more than 240 Trini nationals had migrated to the so-called caliphate in Syria and Iraq. This makes Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), a small twin-island republic in the Caribbean, one of the world’s biggest recruiting grounds, per capita, of the Islamic State.”

    He continued: ” Now, more than six months after the fall of the territorial caliphate, the country faces the mother of all returnee problems: what to do about the scores of its nationals who are currently in detention in Syria and Iraq.”

    What to do indeed? … Europe has a returnee problem and the US too…but significantly less so. In fact just recently a US Judge ruled that a young mother who was born in US, had a US passport and lived her entire life (save these few years in Syria) was NOT a valid US citizen and DENIED her and her new baby the right to return to US shores. (Interesting back story to that) … But that’s not an option for TnT!

    Based on comments in one of your blogs in 2017 one wonders if the Trini authorities will now collaborate with Pres Erdoğan and ask him a favor of identifying the TT nationals in captivity and ensuring that they remain permanently rooted in Syria soil…. just like the French special forces were accused of doing for French ISIS recruits back then: given them eternal rest in their ‘caliphate’.

I questioned the reason given once and their representative and I came to high words. I did not bother with them anymore. I called the Fair Trading Commission. The gentlemen who answered told me he had been working there for three months and NOBODY ELSE HAD CALLED TO COMPLAIN. He wondered if the problem was not on my premises. I told him it was not and the proof was the noise of my next door neighbour’s generator. He told me it could be as simple as a failure to do regular maintenance at the substations, He advised me to make a note of each outage which I had already started to do. He made a call to EMERA (let’s not allow them to hide as BL & P) and he included my concern in the standards which he was at the time formulating. These standards were published soon after. My problem was fixed for a few years. But now the problem is island wide.

    I must say that Emera is treating us, as I told them, like monkeys in trees, because I know they wouldn’t dream of providing such shoddy service in Canada.

    But were we not behaving like frightened monkeys? NOBODY ELSE CALLED TO COMPLAIN!

    It has taken Bajans too long to join me in protest against this ridiculous monopoly that does not seem to give a damn about their substandard service and how it affects us.

    And where is the voice of the people elected to represent us? The ones talking about increasing productivity?

    Bajans must now contend with no garbage pick up, no buses, no water, no telephone service (due to fibre optic technology and my Digicel cell phone had no service) due to no electricity,

    If the social services provided by the taxpayers are lacking in funds, WE KNOW this is not true of the private providers. How long will the government allow them to treat us this way?

    6.Is there any funding in place for the remains to be studied or used, or any funding anticipated in the future, or plans seek further funding?

    HOW MUCH MONEY WUNNA FEEL GHANA GOING TRANSFER TO BARBADOS AFTER WUNNA MANUFACTURE THESE SHEEP BONES?

    7.If the remains have little or no contextual documentation, is it still reasonable to assert a use for them?

  • Where is the regulator?

    @Mariposa

    You are right about the president. She is far more intelligent than Stuart and has a better political brain, and that is the problem. Her neglect of policy is not incompetence, like Stuart’s, but a perception of Barbados, its people and her place in it.
    It is about entitlement, arrogance and over-confidence, the kernels of undemocratic rule. It will end in tears.

  • But listen to this no mentioned made here on BU
    Remember hearing the govt boasting about buying cheap oil.from Jamaica
    The minister went on to say that the cheap oil would have a decrease in charges for barbadian households
    When Minister spoke those words a thought came to mind of asking whether the minister knew the difference between lard oil and crude oil
    Well my suspicion came true of what i thought about the minister’s verbal diarrhea when a spokesperson for light and power said that the Jamaican company from which they purchased the oil had sold them contaminated oil
    The old folks always said never give a monkey a gun to handle
    That saying fits like hand in glove on this govt and all their ministers
    A govt who for all intent and purpose has become a barrell of laughter leaving the country with empty promises and loud noises

  • Makes for wonder as to if Mia took into consideration before removing the bones that the grave might have contained close family members
    Mia in eighteen months has exposed the kind of self serving !egotistical !egomaniacal self absorbed person she is
    But bajans were warned by those who knew her and were closely associated with her
    Her latest mission of the past two days has sent duppy dust flying all over the place
    This problem would be hard for the country to solve because the gods of the underworld are angry
    Bajans be prepared for four more years of catching hell
