MOB ACTIONS: MP CALLS FOR INTENSIFYING CIVIC EDUCATION

The Kumbungu Member of Parliament (MP), Ras Mubarak has reiterated the need to intensify civic education in our various schools.

He was speaking in relation to the lynching to death of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama the late.

Whereas he has called on the state to punish the perpetrators, the legislator is of the view that we are recently recording acts of mob action because we are losing our values.

In Parliament yesterday, Mr. Ras Mubarak stated that “we” as a country have sat back for too long and watched incidents like these go unpunished, emboldening perpetrators to continue on such tangents, advocating that persons involved in the act were dealt with severely in accordance with the law to serve as a deterrent to others”

However, speaking on Pink Fm’s morning show Omanbapa Kasa on Friday, the legislator stated that “this is a tragedy that goes on in this country. This incident has become a disgrace to the nation. It is the responsibility of parliament to discuss the matter thoroughly”.

The whole country has still not revived from the shock and cry out for justice against the perpetrators of this heinous crime. He advised the nation to be responsible citizens and aid the law enforcement agencies by exposing all suspects involved in the crime.

Furthermore, Ras Mubarak called for the intensifying of civic education in our schools in order to help shape the lives of the upcoming generation and also make it a priority to educate ourselves on our true values.
