To welcome you back, here is our special treat for you today:

In a court trial at Ekumfi Essakyir, a lawyer called his first witness who happens to be an elderly grandmother, to the stand. He went to her and asked, “Mama Okanawu, do you know me?”

She responded confidently, “Why, yes I do know you Kofi Patapaa Mawuli. I’ve known you since you were a young boy, and to be frank with you and this young district, you have been a big disappointment to your parents and to the society. You are a liar, you cheat people including your wife,and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you are a big man when you do not even have the least responsible brains. Yes, I know you!”

The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, “Mama Okanawu, do you know the defense lawyer?” She replied, ” Yes, I do. I have known Mr Kwaku Nsembone since he was a young boy too attending school at Ekumfi Bogyano. He has been your very good friend since childhood because both of you attended High School at Cape Coast, continued to KNUST and then to the Ghana Law School; and have the same character. He, Kwaku has also been a very lazy man and he has a drinking problem. Infact, he is a criminal and he can’t even build a normal relationship with anyone. His law practice is one of the worst in the entire region. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with 3 different  women, one of them was your wife.Yes, I know him.The defence lawyer almost fainted.

The Presiding Judge who had been listening to everything, called both lawyers to his table and in a very quiet voice, said,”If any of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll make sure you loose your license!!!
