Kwesi Aning mourns how violent country Ghana is becoming

Ghana as a whole has become more tolerant of violence over the last decade or two, according to security analyst, Dr Kwesi Aning.

Dr Aning was on Citi FM on the morning of Thursday, January 17, 2019, to speak on matters bordering on security in the country.

The analyst argued that the kind of language and attitude exhibited by Ghanaians in the public space has strong underlying violent tones.

Citinewsroom.com quotes the analyst as saying: "“Overtime, back to the last 15 to 20 years, we have become a tolerant society when it is related to violence, it has become showmanship when the violent actually does happen.”

"Our language itself glorifies violence, and right now, the threat of harming somebody."

YEN.com.gh has, in recent times, reported the deaths of some Ghanaians, all of which have left several people heartbroken.

In what appears to be a series of unrelated events, some people lose their lives under bizarre circumstances, and this usually leaves others in a state of bewilderment.

Only in the beginning of 2019, there have been five high-profile deaths, with the latest being the shooting of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a member of Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Tiger Eye Investigations team.

In a violence-related development, the actions of vigilante groups have also taken over Ghana’s media space in recent times as they often make the headlines on various news portals.
