- Archbishop Mathias Nketia say the Catholic Church has began a healing process for the people of Denkyira-Obuasi
- He says the village and its residents must work hard to regain their past glory
A Catholic Archbishop Rev. Mathias K. Nketsia has encouraged the residents of Denkyira-obuasi, where the late Major Mahama met his gruesome death to work hard to clear the name of the village from Ghana's crime books.
The Metropolitan Archbishop visited the people of Denkyira Obuasi and celebrated Mass with them.
Rev. Mathias in a sermon invigorated the residents to foster unity and work hard to regain the soiled image of the village and its people.
The residents of Denkyira Obuasi in a few months have suffered intense backlash from Ghana both home and abroad following the gruesome lynching of Major Mahama.
The young Army captain with the 5th battalion Infantry was attacked by some irate youth of the town killing him instantly after accusing him of being an armed robber.
Ghanaians and the world at large were enraged after videos of his killing went viral, with many calling for military retaliation.
But the Metropolitan Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Coast, explained that the Catholic Church had to take that step to help the community go through the difficult moment.
He said it is part of a healing process for the community and people should not shun them.
