Soldiers have abused people in this country and everybody thinks its normal, a group of children under 18 were beaten in Sunyani by soldiers and some are now disabled, the case is with human rights, Joynews is following up, a boy in the Northern Region called combia was brutally beaten that his manhood can not function again, the case is with human rights, years down the line those soldiers are still working and walking free

Are soldiers for war to protect a nation from invasion or are they trained to bully citizens. Because in Africa that is what it is. In the face of war they will betray the country

Lazy Ghana soldiers don't go to war so sometimes they feel like testing their training skills on the citizen..They are specialized in removing people's eyes and teeth..Like what they did to my teeth.. We go write some friendly match between Ghana army and boko haram to test their pulse paaa

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a Ghanaian man currently identified as Dave, took to social media to share a recent encounter he had with his former classmate who used to be one of the best in class.
In the post sighted by YEN.com.gh on a Facebook page called Trotro Diaries, Dave shared that he joined a commercial vehicle (trotro) and quickly noticed that the face of the vehicle conductor (trotro mate) was familiar.
He would soon realize it was his old classmate. Leaning forward to pay for his fare, the mate who had also identified him asked him not to bother.
Mastering courage, Dave asked his former mate how he ended up being a 'trotro' mate. According to the friend, he lost both parents after Junior High school, and that was when everything went wrong.
