John Mahama should be jailed like Jacob Zuma – Kofi Akpaloo

Kofi Akpaloo, the founder of Liberal Party Of Ghana (LPG), has said that Ghana’s former President John Mahama should have been jailed like former South African President, Jacob Zuma.

As to his best knowledge, irrespective of one’s political affiliation, he or she must be jailed if found guilty of any criminal offense as in the case of South African Jacob Zuma.

Don’t forget, Jacob Zuma served as South Africa’s President from 2009 to 2018. However, he resigned under growing pressure from his party, the African National Congress (ANC).

So, somewhere in the month of June 2021, the constitutional court sentenced Jacob Zuma to 15 months in jail for defying an instruction to give evidence at an inquiry examining allegations of high-level corruption during his time in office.

However, prior to the December 2020 general elections in Ghana, former President of Ghana, John Mahama was accused by his political opponents (NPP) of having links to a corrupt network in a case of kickbacks in the contract for the sale of Airbus military equipment.

Martin Amidu who was then the Special Prosecutor was expected to investigate Mahama on the alleged Airbus Scandal- but the former said his office lacks the resources to deliver and vowed not to arrest any corrupt official in an Election Year.

Speaking in an exclusive interview on the political talk show, “HardBall” – hosted by Kwabena Owusu Agyemang on Accra-based Hot 93.9FM, Kofi Akpaloo stated strenuously that Martin Amidu failed to prosecute John Mahama because he lacked the expertise in executing the role as a special prosecutor.

According to Mr Akpaloo, “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”. Akpaloo insisted.
