Press Release on the Murder of Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed.

Published

on

We have just received depressing news of the death of our colleague and friend Ibrahim “Kaaka” Mohammed, a #FixTheCountry activist and member of the Economic Fighters League who was attacked by a mob for his #FixTheCountry related activism.

As you will recall, we earlier reported that Kaaka was attacked on the same Friday the Ghana Police Service arrested other #FixTheCountry Convenors.

As Tv3/3FM has reported, Kaaka received voice messages of threats being made on his life. In fact, there are voice recordings on which some persons known to be bodyguards to the Municipal Chief Executive of Ejura Sekyeredumase, could be heard saying that activities of Kaaka on Facebook were making the governing New Patriotic Party unpopular in the area and that every means possible must be used to stop him.

In fact, less than two weeks ago, various individuals had gone to report Kaaka to the Ejura Police in order to get him to stop stop his work. Instead of cautioning those individuals to refrain from intimidating and threatening Kaaka in the exercise of his Constitutional rights as a citizen, the Police rather issued Kaaka with a warning letter.

Following Kaaka’s torture, we lodged a formal complaint with the Ghana Police Service. They have taken no steps to interdict or even invite any body for questioning over the murderous attack.

This is murder of an innocent citizen! Kaaka’s blood is a formal indictment of us all and our refusal to stand up and challenge a false democracy! If this is truly a democracy, give us justice!

Tomorrow, we shall seek a formal audience with the Inspector General of Police relating to this matter.

May we not rest until Kaaka receives justice.

Efia Odo breaks silence over her arrest.

Published

Social media sensation and a member of the #FixTheCountry campaign, Efia Odo has spoken following her release from police custody after she was arrested together with 14 others at an Accra High Court, Friday.

Efia Odo who is one of the conveners of the campaign demanding for better living conditions through the #FixTheCountry movement was at the Accra High Court ahead of the court’s ruling on a police injunction seeking to stop the group from embarking on a street protest.

Speaking to the media immediately after lawyers of the group secured bail for herself and the remaining 14 individuals, Efia Odo expressed disappointment in how her arrest was criminalised by the conduct of the police officers.

“I was inside the courtroom and the judge called for a recess that we should come back at 1:30 to get our final verdict. So, as I came outside, obviously a lot of campaigners were outside to support and they wanted to take pictures.

“I am a public figure and they wanted to show their support. A lot of commotion was going on and all of a sudden we see police come with their guns as if we were criminals and they just aggressively pulled us in,” she narrated.



Court throws out injunction against #FixTheCountry demo

An Accra High Court has thrown out an injunction by the Ghana Police Service against the organisers of the #FixTheCountry from holding a street protest.

The Court on Friday, June 25, 2021, ruled in a case in which the Ghana Police citing public health concerns and the COVID-19 restrictions was asking for the conveners of the #FixTheCountry protest to be barred from proceeding with their demonstration.

The group has in the past weeks been demanding better living conditions through social media protests and has been challenged in their decision to take the protest onto the streets.

The Police were seeking to stop the group from embarking on the street protest by citing public health concerns and the imposition of COVID-19 restrictions as its basis.

One of the issues that came up during the court case was the legitimacy of the Attorney General’s Office to represent the Ghana Police Service.

In their challenge against the Attorney General from representing the Police, lawyers for the conveners of the protest argued that the court cannot hear a matter on public order which has been filed in the name of the Republic instead of a police officer as mandated by the constitution.

“The applicant does not have the capacity to bring this application under section 1 subsection 6 of the public order act. Act 491. And as such, the Court is not clothed with jurisdiction to hear or grant the application,” Julius Assinyo said in court.

The Public Order Act section 1(6) which was being relied on by the campaigners to argue their case reads, “where the organiser refuses to comply with the request under subsection 4 or fails to notify the police officer in accordance with subsection 5, the police officer may apply to the justice or chairman of the regional tribunal.”

In his counterargument, the Attorney General described the application as being “completely misconceived and a misunderstanding of the fundamental laws regarding this application.”

The court however sided with the Attorney General and allowed him to represent the Police in the case.

With the injunction against the #FixTheCountry demo quashed, it is not yet known how the organizers intend to go on with their plans or whether the Police and the Attorney General’s Office will explore other opportunities to stop the protest.

We’re aware of your nonchalant attitude, but don’t let it cause stray animals to destroy the trees — Ras Tafari to EKMA and STMA

Published

on

The chairman of the Ras Tafari Council chapter in the Western Region, Kwame Mensa popularly known as Kwame Malcolm is calling on authorities of Effia Kwesimintsim Municipal Assembly (E.K.M.A) and the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA) to ensure the trees that have been planted in the metropolis survives.

Speaking during a tree planting exercise a part of the national tree planting exercise to plant 5 million trees, the RCG -WR chairman wondered if this exercise will not end in futility.

“If you look at the nonchalant attitude of EKMA and STMA in dealing with stray animals one cannot be wrong to say that all our sweat will be in futility…look at how EKMA and STMA look on helplessly as stray cows take over our neighbourhoods? They are looking on helplessly despite numerous pleas and complaints. Now we are here in the rains planting trees and the stray cows will just come and negate all that we have planted, ” Kwame Malcolm stated.

The Western Regional Ras Tafari Council Chair who doubles as the Programmes Manager at Radio 360 and a morning show host indicated that members of the Ras Tafari faith are conservationists who love the beauty of nature.

“As Ras Tafari naturally we love nature; the more reason why we have thrown the comb away and wear our hair in locks. Most of us are vegans we love nature and planting a lot hence you see most of us as farmers. We are therefore asking all to respect our biodiversity and laws to protect our environment. Most of our environment were intact when our forebears used taboos etc to protect them but Western Christianity came and said these are pagan practices. Now look at where we have gotten to?” he underscored.

Kwame Mensa assured that the Council will as part of its support help ensure the trees planted are nurtured to grow.

Over 20 members of the Ras Tafari Council in the Western Region joined the national tree planting exercise by planting over 20 mahogany seedlings along the cocoa villa road in Effia Kwesimintsim Municipality.
