A Piece for Peace is a Disturbing Vision of Ghana in the Event of post-Elections Violence 

Election season in Ghana comes with a fervent call for peace that is understandable thanks to the many scary lessons learned from across the world. With Ghana going to the polls on December 7, it’s no surprise that rallying calls for peace have been echoed from several quarters, animation inclusive.
Animax FYB Studios put together a short PSA that paints a rather graphic portrait of a country destabilized by electoral violence. Yes, Ghanaians are relatively peaceful people but people are people and that’s what the animation, aptly titled A Piece For Peace points out.
While it’s unlikely that the country will degenerate into such chaos, the motion graphic is a good reminder to maintain the peace and also questions the integrity of Ghana’s courts following the bribery scandal that was exposed by Anas Amereyaw Anas sometime in 2015.
Stay vigilante while you vote and remember, no man’s political ambition is worth killing for.
