When the watchman watches in vain
A few weeks ago, my Unit undertook a field work which took us to some manufacturing firms in Accra. In the Managing Directors' offices were large screens which were being fed with information from the CCTV cameras mounted all over the premises. I kept telling and asking myself questions that needed no answers.
To me, these Managers are more of security men because I presume they feel the watchman has to be watched also, because when left unwatched, he will watch but, in vain.
Many a watchman have been held prime suspects in cases of theft and armed robbery where their actions have left one with his eye brow raised up in the sky, because he is seen as the protector of lives and properties. But did the Bible err when it said in Psalm 127:1b that "...unless the Lord guard's the city, the watchman stays awake in vain"? Certainly No!
I was taken aback when I read somewhere in the social media that the Security Coordinator at Ghana's Kotoka International Airport has been bagged in the US for being a part of a drug trafficking syndicate operating in the West African sub-region. Its such a pity but, I hope he is exonerated because it will uncover the unending rot in our security apparatus at the country's entry and exit points.
