Trending issues about #JusticeForKaaka and the Ejura unrest may have died down, as long after their burial and closure of the work of the Committee of Enquiry, the media may have naturally moved on. For instance, Erastus Asare and the Multimedia Group, who were advancing the cause for justice, may now have to protect their own selves from been literally "killed," as already threats have come their way, asking for merciless beating of Erastus and "a show of pepper" to their station.
But from the latest update on the matter, the "few people," who are truly committed to a revolutionary, not by guns, but by their rising voices and positive defiance, through demonstrations and social media campaigns, are bent on seeing the change, that Ghana must see eventually.
In a Facebook post, sighted by the Economic Fighters League, a pressure Group, that has pre-existed even before the fat and increasing #FixTheCountry campaign and are certainly behind and backing this new calls for the current government to move beyond its plenty talk and promises and truly ensue transformation of the country, as every thing is taking a worsening turn, have shared their official visit to Ejura, with the intent of commiserating with the family and getting inspired, for the many rollercoaster journey, ahead of them.
In the post, the Fighters, followed by 32,518 individual followers on Facebook, shared that:
"Yesterday, a delegation from the Central Command under the leadership of CiC Ernesto Yeboah landed in Ejura to visit the family of Kaaka and those of the victims of the massacre. As part of the outlined actions, CiC presented the donations received through our fundraising to the various families.
A total of GHC 11,120 was raised. GHC5,000 was allocated to Kaaka's wife and 5 children, GHC1,000 to his mother while the rest has been distributed among the families of the two killed and those injured. A full list of the disbursements will follow this update.
CiC reminded Kaaka's family and the other victims to be proud that their children stood up for the truth, that they did no wrong by heeding the #FixTheCountry call to action, and that their blood will not be vain.
He also reiterated that, the Economic Fighters League and fellow conveners of #FixTheCountry had no faith in the so-called Ejura public enquiry and that we would be proceeding to petition the UN Human Rights Council, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice and other bodies to do independent investigations to unravel the truth and bring the perpetrators to book.
We must express our appreciation to the families visited for receiving us. The Ghana their loved ones fight for will come to pass. We also deeply appreciate all those who donated to this effort. Your kindness has been noted as part of history. #JusticeForKaaka #JusticeForEjura #FixTheCountry #UntilWeAreAllFree " it stated.
If you missed it, please read the highlighted paragraph above again! The big news that, key stakeholders such as these two, have already expressed disinterest and a show of non-belief, in the work of a major committee, even before it brings out is report is damning and indicative that, indeed, the processes arrived at, may have been flawed, according to them.
It is worth noting that, this not the first big backlash against the entire process of public enquiry. One of first major stakeholders, that took a differing view of the committees initial work was the media. Joy News TV and later joined by Citi FM and even NPP affiliated Asaase Radio, had in various editorials, called out the unnecessary bashing of Erastus Asare and the work of journalist in the country, as unfortunate, darkening the work of the 3 member committee.
During an editorial on PM Express, a day after its first seating on Tuesday night, Evans could not fathom how the state of the activist’s affinity to said movement culminated into the murder of the duo as seen on the day, as he believed, this the seeming overemphasis on the ethical nature of the journalist’s reportage – which saw to the procurement only set of widely circulated footages – sways away from the mandate of the committee’s work.
According to him, the committee’s mandate was cut out – to establish the events on the day as directed by President Akufo-Addo and for this reason, the dwelling on Kaaka’s death which ensued days prior to the disturbance could not have had a direct impact on the magnitude of chaos that was being covered live by Erastus’s and the JoyNews team, as seen here at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uAI6h-c-AQ.
Fast forward, the likes of Lawyer Kofi Bentil called their work, a waste of the tax payers money, amongst several other criticisms of the Committee of Enquiry's work and line of questioning, which according to many, were set to a create an untrue narrative of what happened.
