The founder and leader of Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Kofi Akpaloo has said that former President John Dramani Mahama should have been sentenced to prison just like ex-President of South Africa Jacob Zuma.
According to Mr. Akpaloo, persons who are found guilty of any criminal offense should be dealt with irrespective of their political affiliation.
A few weeks ago, Mr. Zumah was jailed after he was found guilty of contempt of court for refusing to honor an order of the court by providing evidence at a corruption inquiry.
Well, before the 2020 general election flag bearer of opposition NDC was accused of his involvement in an Airbus scandal. The then Special Prosecutor, Mr. Martin Amidu was expected to investigate him but according to him, he lacked the resources to deliver.
Kofi Akpoloo speaking in an interview on Accra-based Hot FM said, “Martin Amidu was lying to have said that because it was an election year, he couldn’t prosecute Mahama…It’s a lie …he just can’t do the job”. “Is the ANC not the government in power in South Africa? Why didn’t they say jailing Jacob Zuma would ignite chaos in the country? Mahama should’ve been jailed like Jacob Zuma”.
