In many jurisdictions where the laws of the countries do not contain immunity clauses for former presidents, John Mahama would have been cited for wilfully causing financial loss to the state.

The whole Komenda Sugar factory idea was a sham from day one. It was not to change the economic fortunes of the indigenes but as a symbol upon which they would vote for Mahama.

Komenda lost its steam in terms of sugarcane long ago since its lands no longer support the growing of the plants.

The fact that the land supported sugarcane years ago does not mean it can do so today. My town, Derma used to be one of the biggest producers of tomatoes in the country. Today, the story is different because our lands have changed and cannot support tomatoes as they used to. To this end, the crop is leaving the town for other areas.

That’s exactly what happened to Komenda. The soils have lost the nutrients which support sugarcane since they might have been used to grow other crops over the years.

This disaster of a sugar factory came about as a result of the aforementioned factors. It should not have been sites in the area. When a sixth form economist is the brain behind such a project, Komenda would be the resultant effect.
