Ashaiman accident: Religion, superstition as against common sense – Stonebwoy writes
Multiple award winning Ghanaian dancehall artist Livingstone Etse Satekla popularly known as Stonebwoy has made known how the recent accident in Ashaiman that took away the lives of some traders and left others seriously injured has made him sad.
Mourning with the families of the deceased and consoling those who survived but with serious injuries, the Bawasawa hitmaker, a proud member of the Ashaiman community questioned why people often place blame at the doors of God when indeed certain incidents could have been prevented but for man’s indiscipline.
Although Stonebwoy believes “God is the author and finisher of our fate”, he again believes “these deaths and accidents that leave us “disabled” is not from him!”
In a lengthy note, Stonebwoy advised Ghanaians on “religion and superstition take some breath”.
He also touched other issues including the lack of proper measures to attend to emergencies situations siting lack of ambulances etc.

“ASHAIMAN INCIDENT!! God is the author and finisher of our fate.. But these deaths and accidents that leave us “disabled” is not from him! Let religion and superstition take some breath..
Look what happened in my city ashaiman. A loaded truck runs into market women at ashaiman traffic. Killing some and leaving some wounded,
Driver-: break failure.
Does this really justify the killing and wounding of other people mothers and relatives ?Wait But did the driver actually mean to Kill though ? I know The Struggle Of Women Especially Market women who hustle Tirelessly To fend For Their Homes. BUT
1• What if our market women stopped coming into the streets ?
2• What if they occupied and stayed in the market places purposed for them to sell so that buyers go to there if they need anything ? The market places may not be able to accommodate the increasing number of women venturing into trade but is it worth risking Their lives on the street side?
Ashaiman As densely populated as it it still has land for modern market places to be constructed anyway. Not To Even Talk about
3•the trucks road worthiness…
4•the trucks Insurance and the rest…..
5•Not to even talk about ambulances that will get to the scene early enough to save some of the victims while they transport them to hospitals
6• Are there enough Beds in the hospitals to admit victims….?
So on and so forth….. WE The people Are The Government. No One person Can make LIFE easier for US Without Our input…
