The Flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has condemned the lynching of a 90-year-old-woman at Kafaba, East Gonja Municipality in the Savanna Region on suspicion of being a witch.

In a Facebook post, Mr Dramani Mahama said he has not been able to watch the video on how the old woman was subjected to inhumane treatment and questioned why the Assembly Members, Unit Committees, the Police and the BNI were unable to stop the dastardly act when it was happening.

The Former President called for a swift action to be taken against the perpetrators of this heinous crime.

This, he said, will serve as a deterrent to others.

Below is what Mr Dramani Mahama said:

“I’ve been unable to watch the whole video. Our society and institutions failed the poor 90 year old woman.

Where were our Assembly Members, Unit Committees, the Police and BNI when it mattered most? It was sad to see a crowd standing by and watching the gruesome spectacle. Very sad reflection on us as a people in the 21st century.

Just by luck, someone captured the sorry sight on a smart phone. How many more Dente Akua’s have died pitiful unrecorded deaths?

At least an example can be set with the perpetrators to prevent any such future macabre incidents. I join Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang in condemning the killing and calling for justice for the family” – Mr Dramani Mahama said.
