A Ghanaian pastor, 61 has been incarcerated for insulting and threatening to beat up the head of their extended family (Abusuapayin).
The post read; “Kwaku Amofa is a pastor. He is 61. He was sentenced to 16 months in prison for insulting His abusuapanyin and attempting to beat him. When I asked him why he had to resort to such an action, he claims he went to dance and took a little alcohol.
Much as his answer may be funny, this old man should have been committed to community service instead of a prison term. What do we gain putting such an old man in prison for a misdemeanor?
Still don’t understand why the passage of the non-custodial sentencing bill appears to have become a problem for our legislators. We have paid his fine and freed him.”

Lydia posted; Incase you don’t know; Your government is hosting a well known gay man to speak on the creative arts, he will be given a kings welcome and treated like a star. But 21 LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 activists are locked up in Ho for weeks without bail.
I keep telling you that in Ghana the more money you have, proximity to power and the passport you hold will determine the rights you enjoy. When you pray, add privilege to it- it’s the only way you will survive anything here. Jokes.
