Major Maxwell Mahama Foundation set up to help fight instant justice

The family of late Major Maxwell Adams Mahama have established a foundation in memory of the late soldier who was killed on Monday, May 29, 2017.

The army commander was lynched by a mob at Denkyira Obuasi while on official duties in 2017. The infamy caused by the brutal killing forced townsfolk to change the town's name to New Obuasi.

The ex-serviceman was also posthumously promoted to the rank of Major from a captain.

3news.com also reports that the Major Maxwell Mahama Foundation, as it is called, is aimed at leading a campaign against mob justice.
