Kpakanda Syndrome.

Kpakanda is a pidgin word that comes from a man who is usually a suffer man, and who has become pale that his stomach is touching his wait because of poverty. Many at times because of his hardship he behaves uselessly.

You know you are a Kpakanda when you beat your wife.

Kpakanda is also a lady like Mjimjim who used to beat the husband. When little kids were back from school they will be shouting dep yi chi enyhu, dep yi chi enyhu, dep yi chi enyhu (hit him on the mouth hit him on the mouth hit him on the mouth) Unfortunately, he does not live in America to form a Battered Husband Club.

You know you are Kpakanda when you have a child and abandon the child.

You know you are a Kpakanda when you drop out of school to be committing crime.

You know you are Kpakanda when you borrow someone’s thing and do not take it back or before you take it back you have messed it up.

You know you are Kpakanda when you are always frowning and angry as if someone is the cause of your problems.

You know you are Kpakanda when you are always comparing yourself with your juniors

You know you are Kpakanda when you are riding the child’s bicycle in the neighborhood.

You know you are Kpakanda when you see a woman, you do not say a word but once they go you start to run your mouth about women.

Kpakanda does not know how to swim and he screams when they push him into the river.

You know you are Kpakanda when you allow your parents to marry a woman for you or remote-control your household.

You know you are Kpakanda when you do things just for food and drinks.

You know you are a Kpakanda when you do not write anything but when others write you whine and complain how their English is bad. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for those with better English to write? Oh no, that is Kpakanda Syndrome.

Until then, the Bible has an Antidote for the Kpakanda Syndrome.

Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk).
