NDC Bribe Scandal

March 17, 2010

Yesterday’s open hearing of the infamous Mabey and Johnson bribery scandal involving some high-profile members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was characterised by legal gymnastics and acrobatics when several lawyers appeared before the three-member Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) panel investigating the scandal on behalf of their clients.

Issues

  • Despite calls by Former President Rawlings as far back as September 2009 when he urged “the Government to act quickly and decisively on the request by President Mills for further investigations”, it took the NDC government about six months to act.
  • A lot of doubt has been raised on issues related to this case and it will be interesting to see how that will be dealt with.

What if it was TA and not EO!

March 16, 2010

Every 6th of March, we have a national holiday to mark what has come to be accepted as our ‘Independence Day’. Many are the people in this country whose understanding, of events prior to that big day, are sketchy to say the least. They depend on the few GBC-produced archives of the time and also on some form of oral tradition. The ‘true’ history of this country has never been told in its entirety. There are elements that would do anything and everything to keep the status quo. They argue that the true story of ‘independence’ would ‘favour’ one group and that should never be allowed to happen.

Issues

  • Columnist claims the that the Kosmos – EO Group case is a matter of political persecution.

Rawlings’ constitutional privileges were never curtailed – Malik Baako

March 13, 2010

Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr. says former president Rawlings was never stripped off his constitutionally guaranteed privileges.

Issue

  • This is very difficult to digest. Whether it is withdrawal of “constitutionally guaranteed privileges” or snubbing a probably reasonable request from a former President, it still casts a shadow of doubt on the integrity of Ghana as displayed by its powers to be.
  • The role of Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr. in the 1979 uprising is still under dispute. Allegations have it that he was at the forefront of shouting “Let the blood flow.” Any information in this regards will be welcomed.
