Drinking Spot Operator Fined for Disturbing Public Peace | What Happens to the Countless Noisy Churches?

Ghana Church

Ghana Church

“Touch not my anointed; and do no evil to my prophet.” Perhaps anointed here can also refer to churches since those anointed are found in the house of God.


Churches have always had their way when it comes to putting fear in people, considering the house of God to be extremely holy to be criticised, even when they are wrong. Day in day out, churches in Ghana continue to make extreme and unnecessary noise, disturbing the peace of others who live close by. When such cases are reported to authorities, action is not taken against them making them go scot-free.

Today’s issue of the Mirror reports on a teenager who has found himself in trouble for playing loud music; thereby been fined by the police for disturbing his neighbours.

According to the newspaper, the Amasaman District Court has fined a 19 year old student for making excessive noise by playing loud music at night, which goes a long way to disturb his neighbours. The culprit, Samuel Asare, who is a bar operator was charged GH₵ 350 by the court for using his drinking spot as a medium for disturbing public peace. As if that isn’t enough, Samuel stands the risk of being imprisoned for four months if he fails to pay the fine.

The case was taken to court by two neighbours (Afua Konadu and Asare) of the culprit; all residents of Omanjor in the Greater Accra Region.

According to the complainants, Samuel had been playing music very loudly every night at his drinking spot, making the surrounding residents unable to sleep. Before reporting the matter to the Ga South Municipal Assembly, Afua said she had warned Samuel on many occasions to desist from the act. However, the culprit turned a deaf ear to her complaints.

Samuel Asare who was bent on playing music at his drinking bar loud (in an effort to attract several customers we suppose) continued the nuisance even after the assembly had summoned and warned him to lower the volume of the music he plays and also close the drinking spot by 9pm.

What irritated the neighbours was the fact that on the night of October 2, 2014, the culprit increased the volume of his sound system to the extent that those in the neighbourhood could not stand the situation any longer.

It was then that, Afua ran to the police station, reported the case, and Samuel was arrested. The police thereafter charged him with the offence of disturbing public peace.

Now that we know the police can fine people for disturbing the peace of others (making excessive noise), it’s time for them to go after the noisy churches too—I live next to one.

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....
