Ghana outrage over flogging of girl

Police in northern Ghana are hunting for three brothers after a video of them allegedly flogging their sister with a horsewhip went viral.

The disturbing footage, showing a screaming girl being held down on a wooden bench in a courtyard by two strong men and then a third man whipping her, has caused outrage in Ghana.

She was allegedly beaten for her habit of coming home late.

Otiko Djaba, Ghana’s children’s minister, has called for the prosecution of all those involved.

This act of brutality is unacceptable in Ghana 61 years on [after independence] and cannot be countenanced by all of us.

No woman or girl should ever go through this harrowing and degrading experience in the name of discipline.”
