Ex-Prez Mahama Calls For Justice For “Murdered” 90-Year Old Woman Accused Of Witchcraft

Former President John Dramani Mahama is seeking justice for the 90-year-old woman who was lynched at Kabafa, Savanah Region, over allegations that she is a witch.

Mr. Mahama condemned the act asking “where were our Assembly Members, Unit Committees, the Police and BNI when it mattered most?”

“It was sad to see a crowd standing by and watching the gruesome spectacle…Our society and institutions failed the poor 90 year old woman.

“Very sad reflection on us as a people in the 21st century. Just by luck, someone captured the sorry sight on a smart phone. How many more Dente Akua’s have died pitiful unrecorded deaths?” he wrote on his Facebook.

THIS IS TRENDING:   Kwaku Boahen Scolded For Disrespecting Nana Konadu Aggyemang Rawlings

I’ve been unable to watch the whole video. Our society and institutions failed the poor 90 year old woman.

Where were our Assembly Members, Unit Committees, the Police and BNI when it mattered most? It was sad to see a crowd standing by and watching the gruesome spectacle. Very sad reflection on us as a people in the 21st century.

Just by luck, someone captured the sorry sight on a smart phone. How many more Dente Akua’s have died pitiful unrecorded deaths?

At least an example can be set with the perpetrators to prevent any such future macabre incidents. I join Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang in condemning the killing and calling for justice for the family.
