Musician-turned-political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng, known popularly as Kwame A Plus, has vented his fury at the country’s judicial system following the 90-day sentence handed to actress, Akuapem Poloo over the publication of nude pictures.
Mr. Obeng indicated that enforcement of the laws of the land has an estranged relationship with the rule of law owing it is biased.
According to him, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo embezzled the COVID-19 funds but he is unpunished and an innocent Akuapem Poloo has been jailed.
In his view, real criminals who milk the nation dry of its resources are unprosecuted but petty criminals face the music adding that such practice will encourage thievery in the country.
“But the person who stole and sold food meant for poor people during the lockdown is walking free. We spent 19 billion Ghana cedis on Covid-19 yet people were fed plain rice and pepper,” he said in an Instagram post after the judgment.
A Plus added that “Akufo Addo managed Covid-19 well Akufo Addo managed Covid-19 well” who said if you give Akua Donkoh 19 billion she won’t be able to manage Covid-19 well?
Leave this poor girl alone. I disagree with the law Always arresting and jailing people for petty crimes and misdemeanours while the real criminals walk freely and continue to steal with impunity”.
Akuapem Poloo, has been jailed for ninety (90) days in prison by the Accra Circuit Court sits on Friday.
The court presided over by Mrs. Christiana Cann convicted the actress after she pleaded guilty in court on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, for posting obscene photos of herself and her seven-year-old son in June last year.
During her sentencing on Friday, Mrs. Cann gave the Akuapem Poloo a minimum sentence for pleading guilty to all the charges leveled against her.
She expressed her dissatisfaction at the increasing rate nudity has dominated the Ghanaian social media space robing the country of its customs and values.
The presiding judge indicated that the action has become necessary to send a stern warning to people who often share nude pictures on various social media platforms.
Christiana Cann added that the actress is being punished to serve as a disincentive to others.
