A social activist and member of #FixTheCountry movement, Kaaka Anyass Ibrahim, popularly known as Macho Kaka, is reported dead after he was attacked by a mob on June 25 in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
He is reported to have died this afternoon while receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. This comes hours after his family gave an account of what happened to him and demanded that justice be served.
Macho’s brother Wakas, who spoke to 3news.com said the perpetrators of the act must not be allowed to go free. “Our brother did not do anything to anyone. He was only expressing his views and so those who are responsible for the attack must be found and made sure they pay for their action”, he said.
The Economic Fighters League, a radical Nkrumaist movement mobilizing people at the grassroots to achieve economic freedom and justice for all, had also condemned the attack and demanded the assailants be arrested and held accountable.
But Macho unfortunately did not live to see the justice demanded for him.
Macho Kaaka, as he is known by many and his Facebook followers, uses social media to talk about developmental issues. He mostly highlights areas of his community that need urgent attention – deplorable, dilapidated and abandoned facilities and stalled projects Ejura community.
This, many thought was a good initiative meant to court the attention of duty bearers and prompting them to act, but it will not be long before he attracted opposition that will metamorphosed into enemies issuing threats and subsequently going after his life.
