Host of Peace FM’s flagship programme Kokrokoo, Kwami Sefa Kayi has condemned comments by the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia over the lynching of Captain Maxwell Mahama.
Mr Asiedu Nketia in an interview with Asempa FM on Wednesday, noted the horrifying murder happened “under the direct supervision of President Akufo-Addo”.
He stressed that since former President John Mahama administration handed over a “peaceful Ghana” to President Nana Akufo-Addo, the country has “known no peace”.
“From the beating up of a serving police officer at the Flagstaff House to the beating up of a Regional Security Coordinator, the disruption of a court process, the burning of toll booths, and the molestation of civil servants, the lawless culture of impunity has now reached the doorstep of the Ghana Armed Forces,” he said.
“The State has watched and sponsored its goon squads to unleash wanton mayhem on innocent Ghanaians…This is highly unacceptable Mr President,” he stated.
Reacting to the NDC General Secretary’s comments, Mr Sefa Kayi said he was utterly shocked that he (Asiedu Nketia) would “play politics” with a sensitive issue as the murder of the Military Captain.
He was emphatic the comments were “shameful and irresponsible” and further questioned if Mr Asiedu Nketia would have done same had the deceased been his relative.
The senior journalist condemned the recent practice of people capturing graphic scenes or others in distress with their handsets and sharing it later on social media.
He advised the public to halt the circulation of pictures and videos of the sordid act since it is unhealthy for the society.
