General News of Saturday, 15 June 2019Source: kasapafmonline.comPoliticization of crime emboldens criminals; stop it! According to him, the politicization of crime emboldens a criminal to continue to perpetrate crime knowing that one political party or the other will come to his defence whenever he’s caught. But Sammi Awuku speaking to host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM condemned the unnecessary politicization of the issue, stressing that crime is crime and should be treated as such devoid of political colorization. I plead with the youth on both sides of the political divide and communicators of both the ruling party and the opposition NDC that crime has no colour.

Now once those things begin to happen, they think that a certain Satan has possessed the woman and is shaking the woman’s body.”“And they take the women to the prayer camps. On the role of prayer camps she said “for women, we look at the emotional side most of the time, and because of that we like to cling to God. Eating well, going to the hospital, going for anti-natal will help.”She added “so I will encourage all pregnant women in Ghana to visit the hospitals to take care of themselves.”
