#FreeKwawKese? Law implicating Kwaw Kese “stupid” – Gabby

According to the former Executive Director, a pro-opposition think tank, Danquah Institute, Gabby Asare Otchere Darko, the law that incriminates hiplife artiste Kwaw Kese for smoking weed is “stupid”.

“So why should a very popular musician who, I presume, had no previous record, be remanded in jail for smoking weed? Is it because of that stupid law passed by the NPP in a panic reaction to MV Benjamin?”
“I am not for any drugs (weed, cocaine, heroin, alcohol, cigarette etc) but this law is absolutely stupid!” he posted on his Facebook page.

A Circuit Court in Kumasi yesterday remanded the musician to two weeks in prison.

The rapper was sentenced by the Circuit Court Judge William Buampong for smoking cannabis which is illegal in Ghana.

Kwaw Kese, real name Emmanuel Botchwey was arrested on Saturday at Nhyiaseo, a suburb of Kumasi, publicly smoking cannabis in a company of some friends.

He will reappear on December 8.
