It is needless to declare Castro dead – Kofi Kinaata
Ghana’s best songwriter, Kofi Kinaata, has said it’s needless to declare Castro dead.
It will be seven (7) years on July 7, 2021, following Castro’s disappearance.
If you would recall, Castro and Janet Bandu went missing when they went cruising with a Jet Ski at the Ada Estuary in 2014.
Efforts to find them have not yielded any positive results.
According to The Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33, a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.
Commenting on this in an interview with Graphic Showbiz that Newshuntermag.com has chanced upon, Kofi Kinaata did not see the need for him to be declared dead.
“Personally, his absence is costing me a lot and his being declared dead will not change anything for the family, friends, and loved ones since we still don’t see him around,” he said.
“Again, we don’t feel his presence or contribution in our lives, which is a great loss so what is the point in declaring him dead? The declaration will not change how we feel about his absence and the many tears that are being shed for what befell him since we are already in pain. Declaring him dead will not kill him or prevent him from coming back home when he feels like doing that if he is not dead,” Kinaata added.
