SADNESS IS IN TOWN BUT MUST WE EXACERBATE IT?

SADNESS IS IN TOWN BUT MUST WE EXACERBATE IT?

Sometimes, one can only shake the head with portentous solemnity over how we allow emotions to get the better part of our judgements when we are consumed by sorrow.

The gruesome murders of the four girls have shocked the entire country. There have been twists and turns, hopes were raised, they have been dashed eventually, and all these conspire to make the entire incident a very sad one.

We are sad, wondering what actually happened, how the family members are faring in the aftermath of this sad news, but we should not allow our sadness to overwhelm us.

John Ndebugri, the legal practitioner, has called for the arrest of the C.I.D boss, Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah for being an accessory to the murders of the kidnapped Takoradi girls for assuring Ghanaians that the girls had been found and were in good health.

Some are also calling for the arrest and prosecution of Brian Acheampong because he too alluded to a similar situation with regards to the girls’ conditions.

They may have got it wrong as it has turned out, but to ask for them to be prosecuted is something of an abnormalcy, in my opinion.

Let’s find better ways of coming to terms with this great loss of the parents and other family members rather than walking this path that leads to nowhere.

The axiomatic adage handed down to us by our forefathers that reads ”Least said, soonest mended”, should be applied at this juncture.
