The government has secured a job for Major Maxwell Mahama’s wife.

This is in fulfilment of the government’s promise to the family after the murder of the soldier.

The Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, also told Accra-based Starr FM that the government is working on a trust fund which was established in the name of the late soldier.

The fund which will be called ‘Major Mahama Trust Fund’ will cater for his wife and children.

“Government promised when he was murdered that we would establish a trust fund for him as part of the four things we originally agreed to establish. So we have been working to ensure that we get that bill established.

“We went to cabinet and cabinet approved of it, we took it to the Gazette, it’s been done and today it’s in Parliament. So it’s a bill that the President will assent to it after Parliament has done its job. The objective of the fund is to cater for the welfare of the family of the late military officer. And we are hoping by the end of the month Parliament works on it for it to be passed,” he said.

Maxwell Adam Mahama was lynched on Monday, May 29, 2017, by residents of Denkyira Obuasi on suspicion that he was an armed robber.

A total of 58 suspects arrested in connection with the murder has since made an appearance at the Accra Central District Court.

The Denkyira Traditional Council performed purification rights in the area to ward off any curse the soldier’s death might bring to the area.
