Gender Ministry calls for immediate investigations and prosecution of killers 90-year old woman

The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection has noted with grave shock and incalculable revulsion, a video making rounds on social media showing a being lynched 90-year old woman on suspicion of witchcraft leading to her unfortunate death.

This unfortunate incident, which is said to have occurred at a village called Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region, has, rightly so, shaken the very foundation of our sensibility as humans.

The Ministry, on behalf of the Government and People of Ghana, unreservedly condemns this barbaric act, and calls for immediate investigations and prosecution of all the perpetrators of this gruesome murder in accordance with our laws.

It certainly cannot be said that such antiquated mentality could still be with us in this 21st century where the world and Ghana in particular has made significant strides in upholding the rights and dignity of women
