Military is being overly politicised – Ex-serviceman
An ex-serviceman has bemoaned the politicization of the military in Ghana.
“In every institution in Ghana, we have politics playing a large role, including the security services. Informally, in the security, we know where everyone belongs,” he said on the Joy FM Super Morning Show [SMS] Wednesday.
According to Shem, because “recruitment into the military is done through nepotism,” it has infested the service with people who “are not passion-driven. They do not carry zeal wholeheartedly.”
There is a national uproar in Ghana over political vigilantism. At an NDC party meeting in Kumasi, two men were shot, killing one.
Before this shooting, a by-election was marred by violence. And there is a presidential commission to fix what is broken.
Shem said, “we the populace can say hey we are tired”.
