Former Diplomat, K.B. Asante, says the commemoration of today’s February-28 shooting incident must be used to honour the remaining veterans who served the country but, are currently living in abject poverty.
The incident is celebrated every year to honour defenceless ex-servicemen who were killed in 1948 at the instruction of a colonial police officer during a peaceful march to the Osu Castle.
They had intended to send a petition to the then Governor on their living conditions.
More than fifty years after the incident, most surviving veterans and relatives of the three who died, are living in extreme poverty.
But Mr. Asante told Joy News the political leadership of today, must learn lessons from the selflessness exhibited by the veterans.
