Major Mahama’s widow Barbara barely talks – Father-in-law

Barbara Mahama, the wife of the late Major Maxwell Mahama, is yet to recover from the shock of the gruesome murder of her husband, the father of the slain army officer, retired Captain Denis Mahama has disclosed.

According to him, Mrs. Mahama and her deceased husband were very close until his unfortunate demise and that since the grisly incident she barely utters a word.

“Barbara is yet to recover. Barbara is yet to recover. They were very, very close. So she is yet to recover. But thanks to God she is still holding herself, picking herself up together,” he said Wednesday on Morning Starr.
“She doesn’t talk. She cannot talk,” he added.

When the host Francis Abban probed: “You mean since this incident happened she has not uttered a word?” He replied “very little.”

Late Major Mahama was brutally lynched and charred to death a week ago after he was allegedly mistaken for an armed robber.

He was with the 5 Infantry Battalion of the Ghana Armed Forces, Burma Camp Accra but on detachment duties at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central region where he was gruesomely murdered by residents there.

As at June 5, the Ghana Police Service announced the arrest of 42 persons in connection with the horrendous murder. They have been arraigned in court and currently on remand.

Mahama who will be buried on Friday was posthumously promoted from Captain to Major by President Akufo-Addo on the recommendation of the Chief of Defence Staff, Lt. Gen. O.B Akwa.
