Ghanaian actress Abena Mckenzie in an interview has said the youth now don’t care about corruption in the country anymore, they just want to survive.
The actress who is well known to speak about societal ills and national issues said that every institution of the country is in a mess.
According to her, Ghanaians are not even as concerned about corruption anymore but just want to survive.
She added in an interview on Lark TV that most Ghanaians have resorted to going abroad not because they don’t like the country but because they don’t want to wake up and be afraid.
“I feel like us being mad at each other is cause being mad at the system isn’t working – and we have to put that energy somewhere. Health, Power, Education, Security, everything is a mess. People are dying because of the most basic things”, she said
“We’re not even as concerned about the corruption anymore. We just want to survive. We want to get through every day without being victims. People aren’t running away because they hate Ghana. They’re running because they feel helpless. They want to wake up every day and not be afraid”, she added.
Abena added that the youth want to work with the hope that it won’t be for anything. If everybody closes their borders to us, what then?? I’m scared. For me, and the future. My heart is literally racing in my chest.
