A- Plus blasts Government for holding memorial service for George Floyd


Entertainer and political activist,  Kwame Asare Obeng, aka Kwame A Plus has landed heavily on Ghana Government led by His Excellency Akuffo Addo for organizing a memorial service in honour of George Floyd.

George Floyd, an African-American man died in Powderhorn, a neighbourhood south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota On May 25, 2020.

Mr George 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.

The death of George Floyd is the latest victim of police brutality in the United States and has sparked a worldwide conversation on systemic racism.

Ghana Government following the brutal killing of the African- American, aligned with other nations to hold a memorial service to send a message across that they abhor such racial practice.

The government, under the patronage of the Ministry for Tourism, Arts, and Culture released a flier announcing its decision to hold the said memorial today in front of the Dubois Centre.
