It is soo sad how some individuals behave towards the aged knowing very well that they aren’t healthy enough to do certain things at their age.
There are a lot of aged especially women who are being maltreated in one way or the other. Talking about the northern part of Ghana, this aged woman are sometimes accused of being witches and sent to the witches’ Camp just to make life miserable for them instead of enjoying at their old age. Other who aren’t lucky are being lynch to death. A perfect example is the 90 year-old woman from Kafaba in the Savannah Region Of Ghana.
The saddest part of it is, the people involved in such uncalled for act are left to go scot free for taking the life of someone.
Having said that, a quite similar incident has happened again and Ghanaians can’t hold their tears after it hit them. It could be recalled that a 130 year-old Ghanaian woman Identified as Obaapanin Mary was said to have fell down during an attempt to retrieve GH¢34 ($5.88) that was owed her by another woman.
