The politician was pictured preparing to sign a book of condolence opened by the family for the fallen soldier.

The move, however, drew mockery from some social media users, as Madam Akua Donkor cannot read and write.

The social media users speculated on what she could have written in the book, with one saying she wrote "Da Yie".

Maxwell Mahama

Police say 10 kilometres into the walk, he stopped to buy snails from some women in the community and was reaching into his pocket for money to pay them when one of the women spotted a gun tied to his waste.

The woman, according to the police account, called William Baah, the assembly man in area, and reported that she had sighted an armed robber.

The assembly man then quickly organised people in the community to beat and kill the soldier, police said.
