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.
Speaking on 3FM’s Sunrise on Thursday, November 1, father of late Major Mahama Captain (rtd) Denis Adams said the family of the slain soldier is committed to ensuring that no such incident occurs ever again.
Adams is quoted as saying: “The death of Major Maxwell Mahama should never be in vain, and the only way for it not to be in vain is for us to ensure that never again should such a thing happen to any other person.
“We should use his death to stop mob justice.”
He stated that the family has taken opportunity of the late Major’s birthday, which falls on November 1, to officially launch the foundation to celebrate his life.
