Dear GhanaWeb reader,
We are witnessing the kick-start of the debate on manifestos after weeks of political jabs by both major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP). NDC’s The People’s Manifesto was finally unveiled last week to level the ground for a debate after weeks of analyzing NPP’s Leadership of Service manifesto.
The flip-side of the political moment is the seeming absence of minority political parties that are yet to present their manifestos and be a part of the entire political debate. This trend has basically reduced the country to a two-party democracy instead of a multiparty dispensation.
Meanwhile, the sad news that every Ghanaian couldn’t miss this past week was of the Ghanaian pastor in the United States who shot dead his wife of five years after series of marital disputes. Sylvester Ofori is alleged to have followed his estranged wife to her place of work and shot her seven times in the back with a gun. Prosecutors told an Orlando court that a raged Ofori stood over the body of his wife as she took her last breath and fired more rounds into her.
While the news was of the gruesome murder was developing, another murder was reported on Saturday of the esteemed Ghanaian law lecturer, Professor Emmanuel Yaw Benneh. His body was found tied in his home at Adjirigano in Accra. He is suspected to have been murdered days before his body was found.
