Isnât this an important lesson for us?
Less than three years ago, an atrocious unwarranted crime took place on the bank of the river in Pembroke. It was in the month of DECEMBER, when the life of one of its villagers was cruelly wiped out. The very river was used by culprits to wash away the guilt to make it appear that the murderer(s) came from far away. It was the same month, but different day that the river raised its ugly head and caused havoc for villagers, some of whom knew about the murder, but kept it a secret. Innocent ones were affected, but I believe the upholders were scared out of their wits. I am sure memories of that fateful morning when “ELLSâ was butchered, for no reason at all, compounded the fears they experienced.
The water bodies â the elements, then provide warnings. They provide important lessons for us. Shouldnât we stop and listen and learn? It is not too late for those villagers who are parties to that horrible murder to come forward and let those involved be brought to justice. Time is no deterrent.
The justice system can accommodate this.
Mr Bassy Alexander, in one of his weekly writings, said: “WHEN THE MESSAGE HURTS, WE DESTROY THE MESSENGERâ.
I donât fully agree with this. I think they DESTROY THE WOULD-BE MESSENGER, SO THAT THE MESSAGE WILL NOT BE KNOWN.
ELLS is not forgotten and his killers are still at large. Everybody knew Moses did not kill him. If Moses didnât, WHO did? And why arenât the murderers brought to justice yet?
Is it because the police are too afraid to do their jobs which is the case at times?
EVEN THE WATER BODIES ARE CRYING OUT.
