We Demand Justice For Madam Yednboka Keena - Modern Women Of Wisdom International

Modern Women Of Wisdom International

The brutality meted out to Madam Yednboka Keena has come to the notice of Modern Women of Wisdom International.

The 67 year old woman was accused of witchcraft and stoned to death by self styled spiritual CIDs at Tindongo in the upper East region on the same day Captain Mahama was lynched.

Although there is no consensus about what is it that she had done, she was assaulted, kicked in the groin and stoned to death without any trial although the deceased kept saying she was innocent of the allegation.

Every now and then, we wake up to hear lynching stories in some part of our great, freedom-loving country, where all men are created free and equal.

As a humanitarian Association that supports women in crisis, we found the evil act perpetuated against the old woman unpleasant and disgusting.

When it comes to issues of women in crisis, this particular case sits within not just a criminal law structure or social justice structure but within violence against women which is a completely human rights issue as well.

We therefore urge the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to step up its education of human rights to curb mob attacks in our beloved country.

Again, we urge the Government to mount CCTV cameras in every district so the police could monitor the activities of citizens and act rapidly without been called to crime scenes.

We humbly call on the Ghana Police service to immediately arrest all those behind the stoning of Madam Yednboka Keena to serve as a deterrent to others.

Long Live Ghana,
Long Live Women,
Long Live MWOW.
