Musician and activist Kwame Asare Obeng, widely known as A Plus, has accused deputy speaker of Parliament for proposing that, people who engage in galamsey must be shot and killed.
According to him, The deputy speaker didn’t propose that those who stole excavators must be arrested but he rather sized the equipment and gold in the name of stopping galamsey which he ended up selling the gold and giving the land and equipment to their family and friends.
In The Post, He Wrote;
We were in this country when a whole deputy speaker of Parliament proposed that people who engage in galamsey must be shot and killed on sight without a fair trial. And yes, we heard stories of some galamseyers who were killed. But that deputy speaker failed to propose any form of punishment for those parliamentarians who took double salary (pure stealing) They were not even charged,They are walking free.
The deputy speaker didn’t propose that those who stole excavators must be arrested. They are walking free today. He didn’t propose that those who sacked poor people from their own land, sized their equipment and gold in the name of stopping galamsey but ended up selling the gold and giving the land and equipment to their family and friends to mine must be executed by shooting. He has been very quiet like a Chinese Bluetooth speaker which cannot connect.
As for the ordinary people working on their land to make ends meet, they can be hunted and shot like wild animals. Law students were brutalized by police for demonstrating peaceful but even during a pandemic when the president himself has put restrictions in place, his people are allowed to demonstrate because of a social media comment.
You see, these are the things that have brought enmity between politicians and the people. If good politicians don’t rise and speak and join the people to chase the evil ones out, it does not matter whether you are NDC or NPP, you will buy the farm just as an innocent MP bought the farm in the central region not long ago.
The ear that does not listen to advise follows the head when it is chopped off; he added.
