Current levels of hardship dire, probably the worst in 30 years – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has commiserated with the populace on the current hardship brought on by an economic crunch.

He advised that despite the ‘historic’ hardship that Ghanaians are facing, there was the need to keep faith alive and to look out for one another.

Mahama was reacting to a news report last week of how a commercial transport financial administrator – trotro mate – climbed a power transformer reportedly out of frustration.

The incident at Kasoa Galilea ended with Kofi Kakra being electrocuted after attempt to persuade him and to rescue him from the power lines proved futile.

Mahama, who was out of the country at the time of the incident wrote in an October 19 Facebook post: “I returned from a trip to hear the sad news of Kakra who killed himself by electrocution.

“The current levels of hardship in Ghana is dire and probably the worst we have ever experienced in the last three decades, but suicide is never the answer.

“Even in the darkest night, there will always come the dawn. The sun will rise again. Let’s be each others keeper. Let’s keep hope alive!” the post read.

It was accompanied by a viral photo of the deceased when he was clinging onto some of the high-voltage wires that eventually led to his electrocution and death.
