Crime Check Foundation has come to the rescue of Samuel Kwaku Sakyi a tricycle driver serving jail term.
The tricycle driver was asked to pay Thousand Eight Hundred Cedis to his boss or serve an 18 month sentence by the court of law.
According to the guy he had fulfilled his part of the ‘work and pay’ agreement but his boss insisted he hadn’t finish.
The court asked Samuel to pay one thousand eight hundred cedis to his boss or in default go to prison for 18 months, but he could not raise the amount. Ama had then left him.
With tears, Samuel had to go to jail. After spending two months at the Koforidua Local Prison, philanthropist, Ali Ibrahim has paid the court fine for him to start life all over again.
Samuel’s reaction when I broke the news to him that he is going home, courtesy the intervention by Ali Ibrahim.
May Allah continue to bless our dear brother Ali Ibrahim.
So the question is, couldn’t have Samuel contributed to society better if Ghana had a law on Community Service?
When other countries are using prisoners for socio-economic development, we continue to warehouse our own. So sad!
