The arrest of the Ghanaian Priestess, Patience Asiedua seems to excite some Ghanaians but as to for her to go to jail is another issue. According to the Communication Minister yesterday, she was arrested on two charges, thus operating her television station, Thunder TV without a license and claim to doubling money using her personal god known as 'Sika Gari'.
Section 2(4) of the Electronic Communications Act 775 of 2008 states that "Except as provided by this Act or any other law not inconsistent with this act, a person shall not operate a broadcasting system or provide a broadcasting service without a frequency authorization by the Authority". This law is not a criminal case but will attract a fine and if Nana Agradaa is able to pay the court fine, she would be free to go home.
With her spiritual case, thus 'Sika Gari' cannot be dealt in court unless there is evidence duping all customers who visit her at her shrine. The court will definitely call for witnesses and if the lawyers are able to manage to get witnesses who can testify that the 'Sika Gari' actually works, that charge against the Priestess might also be dropped against her.
The law of the country allows for traditional worship provided the person or persons do not break other laws of the country. So Nana Agradaa's 'Sika Gari' money double is not enough to send her to jail.
