Former minister son shot

Posted by Business in Ghana on August 14, 2009

Armed men in uniform from the Ghana Police Service on Saturday opened fire on Kwesi Osei, a pre-med student and first born of Kofi Osei-Ameyaw, former MP for Asuogyaman and ex-deputy Minister of Tourism.  The firing saw a live-bullet piercing through the right thigh of Kwesi Osei and shredding some substantial amount of flesh, with his trousers and shoes getting soaked in blood as he sprawled in agonized semi-consciousness struggling to stay alive.

The chilling story of a Tamale mother Butchered & left for dead

Posted by Business in Ghana on March 27, 2009

Her home was being burnt down. Scores of armed men were pouring petrol everywhere, smashing the skulls of dogs. She ran 400 yards down the road to flee from a machete-wielding mob, who were firing gunshots behind. They chased her to a neighbour’s room. Pulled her down the wardrobe and started hacking her, aiming to split her skull, which she protected with her arms. They butchered her arms like a cow’s thigh on a butcher’s table.
Slashed her legs as she sought to escape. Leaving her for dead, as blood splashed all over her attackers, one inserted a metal bar inside her private parts, swearing his stars for not having the privacy to cause more sexual damage.

This is the story of Sadia Seidu, a victim of the recent clashes in Tamale, who is currently receiving treatment at the 37 Military Hospital.

Corruption and the fabric of our Existence

Posted by Business in Ghana on September 21, 2008

By Mike Mensah-Bonsu, former National Chairman of PNC and staunch Nkrumahist

I think we shall be doing our country a great disservice if we single out Mr. J.J. Rawlings as a ‘betrayer’ of his own rules.

Similarly, I do not agree with the imprisonment of Mr. Tsikata on the basis of corruption even though “there may be” clear proof of wrongful doing.

My comments are in no way intended to defend or attack these gentlemen in question. However, I firmly believe that vindication can never be the best form of justice and of resolving problems in our society, otherwise we may have to ‘get rid’ of many people – we have far too many corrupt men and women in Ghana – singling out “scape goats” is not the answer. The killing of the Honourable Judges, Afrifa, Kotoka, Achampong, Akuffo, Yaw Boakye, Felli, etc., etc., is still haunting the Nation – the result of vindication.
