I sincerely think Menzgold is a social mirror and Nana Appiah Mensah is a part of who we have all become – a society of rusty gold. To quote Walt Kelly the famous US cartoonist of the 1960s, “we have found the enemy, and he is us”. As an artist, I am well aware that every once in a while, an obscure rascal emerges from the shadows of society and confronts us in ways that shock and unsettle our social façade.
It is always a sad irony that the society which produced Menzgold could call for his head to roll. To this end, will the men who have maintained the purity of their gold’s karat, be the ones to cast the first stones?
