Corporal Osei Owusu, now Lieutenant Osei Owusu, was among the list of 132 military officers, who graduated and were commissioned recently.

Corporal Osei Owusu was captured in uniform drinking Kalyppo, ahead of the 2016 elections, a craze that had gone viral on social media at the time.

Ghanaians criticized the military for refusing to punish the soldier who took a picture while sipping on Kalyppo in the build-up to the 2016 polls but has gone ahead to punish another for commenting on a matter also in the public domain.

The Director of Communications of the Ghana Armed Forces, Colonel Aggrey-Quarshie, at the time did not comment on the outcome of the investigations into the matter except to say that the investigations are over and Private Osei Owusu was going about his official duties.

According to him, the young soldier breached sections of the military regulations but was never detained.

He said military regulations “do not allow for self-publicity so you don’t do anything that will draw attention to yourself as an individual soldier. You need authorization before you can do that.”
