Ghanaian media personality and GHOne news anchor, Serwaa Amihere has descended heavily on celibrities and popular personalities who were quick to jump on the bandwagon to condemn and call for justice during the killing American black man, George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota but are silent on the killing of a 90-year-old woman in Kafaba.
The old woman was lynched by a village mob, led by two women, one of who is a soothsayer on the suspicion of witchcraft.
The lynching of the woman has called for condemnation from some personalities including the Chief Imam Sheikh Nuhu Shaributu, Former President John Dramani Mahama, former First Lady Lordina Mahama and her foundation as well as the running mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.
Some celebrities and politicians have been silent on the killing of the woman including the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo.
Reacting to the loud silence of some of these major personalities, Serwaa Amihere took to Twitter to call out “celibrities and socialites”who have been silent on the murder but were quick to mourn George Floyd.
“We saw a lot of Ghanaians especially celebrities and socialites speak up and condemn the George Floyd killing. Where are they in this KAFABA inhumane and gruesome killing ? Ghanaian lives matter too,” the news anchor wrote in a tweet.
