Help us to resist opressors

There is an Akan adage that says 'when you pull something and it is not forth coming, then something is holding it back'.
I have wondered why thousands of Ghanaian farmers and residents in our rural areas have suffered so much brutalities in the hands of Fulani herdsmen without the various stakeholders, both past and present doing anything about the menace.

Last Sunday at a programme on the nation's broadcaster, GTV, revelations were made releasing a lot of cats out of the bag. I couldn't close my mouth as I sat with my mouth wide open at the revelations.
A leader of the farmers who was among the panel, when asked why government was silent on the issue revealed that TOP goverment officials and other stakeholders including BIG chiefs and TOP business tycoons OWNED the cattle and only hire the services of the Fulani men to take care of their cattle for a fee. Lol!

Just recently a farmer was shot dead by these normads in one of the farming communities in the Eastern region, in protest, the irate youth vowed never to allow the celebration of any funeral in the community till the chiefs and other opinion leaders do something about the menace of the Fulani herdsmen.

I have noticed this silence and luke-warm attitude on the part of government, the security services and other stakeholders whenever the issue of these normads are being discussed. This is a very serious issue that needs to be discussed thoroughly to find a lasting solution to, cos it more serious when the indirect culprits are our own top men.
