Rawlings backs vigilantism
Former President Jerry John Rawlings says the need for community vigilantism is “an absolute necessity” and “an absolute must”.
To him, vigilantes protecting the environment, for instance, can help prevent random and persistent dumping of refuse on the streets.
Mr Rawlings said the vigilantes will, therefore, complement the efforts of security agencies.
He recommended that even before lawbreakers are handed to state security agencies, they have be “disciplined”.
He, however, stressed that nobody supports thugs who parade as vigilantes like it is happening in the political circles.
The former president was speaking at the Annual Thanksgiving Service of Zoomlion and the JOSPONG Group of Companies.
