A Ghanaian Dancehall artiste and leader of the BHIM Nation, born and bred, grew and stills lives in Ashaiamn the block he represents and passionate about taking to Facebook to pay tribute to the lost souls in the famous Thursday Ashaiman market incident while he wish those injured a speedy recovery.
In his tribute and an address, the artiste who is on his “Epistles of Mama” world tour detailed the solutions to the menace which he described it and advised we leave God and superstition out of this and blame our own attitude as a people.
It’s palpable the “Bawasaba” Hit maker knows exactly what he was talking about as he lives there, grew up there and have his hands wrapped around the issues. We hope the appropriate quarters pays a little responsiveness to the call by the young man and gets the right things done going forward.
Below is the full statement made by Stonebwoy.
God is the author and finisher of our fate.. But these deaths and accidents that leave us “disabled” is not from him! Let religion and superstition take some breath..
Look what happened in my city Ashaiman.
A loaded truck runs into market women at Ashaiman traffic.
Killing some and leaving some wounded,
Driver-: break failure.
Does this really justify the killing and wounding of other people mothers and relatives?
Wait But did the driver actually mean to Kill though?
I know The Struggle Of Women Especially Market women who hustle Tirelessly To fend For Their Homes. BUT
1 What if our market women stopped coming into the streets?
2 What if they occupied and stayed in the market places purposed for them to sell so that buyers go to them if they need anything?
The market places may not be able to accommodate the increasing number of women venturing into trade but is it worth risking Their lives on the street side?
Ashaiman As densely populated as it is still has land for modern market places to be constructed anyway.
Not To Even Talk about
3 The trucks road worthiness…
4 The trucks Insurance and the rest…..
5 Not to even talk about ambulances that will get to the scene early enough to save some of the victims while they transport them to hospitals
6 Are there enough Beds in the hospitals to admit victims….?
So on and so forth…..
WE The people Are The Government. No One person Can make LIFE easier for US Without Our input…
Our mindset And the Way We SEE and Think Things Really Matters..
DONT YOU THINK WE ARE LOSING so many people prematurely because of Our Own indiscipline ?
I know I was only expected to post the video and write captions Like
How about #LetsWiseUp #AndStopKillingEachOther
Get well soon Those who Obtained Wounds
And May Their souls Rest In Peace Those Who passed. Condolences to their families…
On Thursday 26th July, 2018, a Kia truck loaded with cement blocks ran into traders along the major Traffic Light intersection close to the Ashaiman Market.
Reports say the truck’s break failed, forcing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, and in the process running into the street hawkers.
The truck also damaged five other vehicles which were parked along the road.
At least one person has been confirmed dead with six others including a young girl severely injured.
