We live in a country where we are prone to judge the poor by the index of material possessions and predilection of one’s personality rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind.
A country where the poor suffer injustice and various acrimonious act from those in authorities all because they have no money to pay to seek for justice.
It really boils down to this; if this innocent boy can be jailed for two good years for stealing Gh20 from a kenkay seller. But we have those within the political space stealing millions of money and parading as free people even though with concrete evidence to prosecute them.
This incidence really affirms that we live in a country where the poor is always seen as element of mental inferiority and object of urgly bellicose. For years, people have use various political offices to enrich themselves at the expense of the suffering populace but we see nothing wrong with that because they were government officials and they are too sacred to be touch.
We can not continue like this as a country govern by judicial principles and democracy. This is also clear indication that, the laws are enacted to favour the rich and the nocturnal criminals without protecting the rights of the poor in the country.
Authorities and stakeholders should rise to the majestic height and seek for justice and proper adjudication for this innocent boy.
