This is one of the ills of Ghana that we have to confront and stand up against and not relent on.
For every so-called law or policy, we have two tiers of enforcement – strict enforcement for poor people and relaxed enforcement for the rich and powerful.
That’s why a powerful politician or businessman steals millions of cedis and walks around free but a poor man who steals Ghc 20 to get food to eat can receive a 15-year jail term.
We’re seeing that principle in play once again as Kwadwo Safo Jr recently held a birthday party to celebrate his big day.
Despite COVID restrictions put in place by the President forbidding public gatherings over 25 people being held and mandating wearing of nose masks everywhere one goes, Kwadwo’s party flouted all these rules.
Videos from the party shows atendees more than 25 and with most of them wearing no nose masks.
However, nothing has and will ever happen to Safo for flouting the restrictions so publicly and blatantly.
Some social media users have noticed this hypocrisy and taken to social media to complain.
These are the real issues holding Ghana back and have to be addressed. Everyone must be equal before the law.
