Former President John Mahama however noted that in the case of Kakra, suicide is never an answer and also advised Ghanaians to be each other’s keeper .
I returned from a trip to the sad news of Kakra who electrocuted himself. Levels of hardship in Ghana are dire; worst in 3 decades. But suicide is never an answer. Even inthe darkest night there’ll come dawn. The sun will rise again. Let’s be each other’s keeper & keep hope alive
About a week ago, Ghanaians were met by the sad news of Kakra who couldn’t stand the hardship and the rising cost of living and as a result , subjected himself to the highest level of cruelty when he committed suicide by getting himself electrocuted on a high tension pole in Kasoa.
It must be noted the cost of living in the country has increased and many people are finding it extremely difficult to make ends meet. The cost of goods and services have increased tremendously.
