Showing his ghetto roots and disdain for the rule of law, ‘dancehall king’ Shatta Wale has warned Ghanaians that God’s judgement would be rained on us if the killers of Capt. Mahama are not found and killed.
Shatta Wale, writing on Facebook, says he ‘swears’ that the end times would start here in Ghana if we don’t go out and murder the murderers of Mahama.
That makes sense.
This debate is going on online, about whether vigilante justice is the appropriate response to such vigilante justice.
Some Ghanaians, like Shatta, are of the view that it is. Others, like Okyeame Kwame, are against it.
We’ve said already and we’ll say again, lynching is lynching – and it seem a poor use of logic to think lynching is the way to show other people that lynching is wrong.
We know Shatta Wale is deeply disturbed by the incident, indeed we all are – but the law must be allowed to work otherwise you have no guarantee that the next time it won’t be you suffering the fate of Mahama.
