Equality before the law is one of the essential ingredients of democracy. When all, irrespective of your status in society are made to face the law equally, it instills discipline into the system and curbs the excesses that may arise due to the power and influence wielded by people in the country. This attribute looks simple and easy on paper but in practice, it is a bit complicated. For instance, in Ghana, a sitting president cannot be prosecuted.
Since the police service in Ghana has arrested Mr. Felix Ansah for a statement he made on Onua TV for his alleged killing of people for ritual purposes, and subsequent apprehension of Owusu Bempah and three others for various offenses, there has been a call from a section of the public for the gesture to be extended to the Assin North Member of Parliament.
The Assin North legislator has made several comments to the effect that he has evidence of people who murdered the late JB Danquah and Journalist Ahmed Suale. Since the police are yet to close the docket on those cases and put those who slain the two behind bars, according to a section of the public, Honourable Kennedy Agyapong should be arrested and made to provide the evidence he claims to have.
But with someone of Kennedy Agyapong standard, will Dampare have the courage to listen to the voice of the multitude and effect the arrest of the Assin North legislator? This will cement the legacy of Dampare and possibly provide the evidence needed to nail those who assaulted Ahmed Suale and JB Danquah.
