Former president Jerry John Rawlings has stated that murderers must be executed and not jailed.

The former military ruler made the statement when the family of the late JB Danquah-Adu, the murdered MP for Abuakwa North, visited him at his residence in Accra on Wednesday March 16, 2016.

“Our constitution empowers us and gives us the right to punish, to exact the same level of punishment and if we cannot do it, to serve as a lesson, to those who are taking others’ lives with ease, then please I’d like to use this invite parliament to consider the need to look into our constitution as to whether we should not now empower the regional security councils to sign or to approve the taking of a life for a life,” Rawlings who first came to power through a bloody coup in 1979 said.

The controversial issue caught the attention of Cartoonist Makaveli.
