Influx Of Doom Prophecies In Ghana: You Cannot Subject It To Scrutiny – Lawyer

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
In the midst of many Ghanaian prophets prophesying doom, A
private legal practitioner, Lawyer Eric Owusu Sae has explained the position of
the Ghanaian law on the influx of doom prophecies.
In an interview with Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity 97.1
FM’s Showbiz 971 in Sunyani, Lawyer Owusu Sae revealed that the laws of the
country do not deal with spirituality.
“We do not deal with spirituality when it comes to law. You
cannot subject the prophecies to scrutiny. The law only deals with physical
things.  There are uncertainties with
these prophecies. It is what somebody thinks or believes and sometimes it is
interpreted differently. Most Ghanaians are not bold. If we are bold things
like this would not happen,” he said.
He, however, indicated that there are laws which regulate
beliefs, but it is weakened in Ghana because people submit themselves
voluntarily to the prophets due to the belief they have in what they prophesy.
Lawyer Owusu Sae was intrigued by the opportunity given to
these prophets to propagate their message by a section of the Ghanaian media.
“It is sad that the Ghanaian media are giving them the
platform to say all these things. If you listen to some radio stations, all
they will be doing is prophesying doom. 
It is worrying and it hampers our development. It does not let us fight
forward in life…it puts fear in people so they could not work towards their
goals,” he lamented.

“It is interesting to know what some people deem as
prophesy. We play a lot in this country. We have to be serious. We have created
two different worlds for humans…it is an endemic problem in Africa,” the
outspoken Lawyer stated.
