Article 204. The Laws of the Animal Kingdom Chapter II,
Original Story “Ampan Dankwa” by Nana Ampadu.
There came a time in an undulated, indubitably hot morning in the animal kingdom when all animals were authorized to come together to make a life-changing law which was, that no animal should eat the other. If anyone went contrary to the law they would be hanged to death. There was singing and dancing in all the streets of the kingdom. The mice, goats, butterflies, little turtles, fish, and worms were, perhaps, the happiest. The monkeys danced because they could still have bananas in this new peaceful world. The cow was indifferent as she lay dreamily on the field munching on some sumptuous hay. Peace at last for all! The law was legally drafted for every animal to sign as a form of agreement. During the day of the law-making decision, the Tiger had traveled so they sent the antelope hence he was one of the fastest animals to get to the tiger. The antelope did not disappoint, he delivered the documents to the tiger. As the tiger read through the documents, he released he was greatly affected by the new law. How could he survive, he thought but he had to sign the documents because he was solitary standing. After going through the brutal starvation for months, the tiger was as weak as it could be and there was nothing he could do about it so he did the possibly logical thing to rest and save his energy for another day. While he was inactive, a deep sleep fell upon him with his mouth wide open. The bat was flying when he saw the tiger helpless on the ground. His first thought was to abuse the new law by jumping up and down the tiger’s throat. He thought wrong because, on his fourth jump, he didn't come back out, the tiger just shut his mouth. The antelope witnessed what had happened so it went to the elders of the kingdom. They called a meeting to confirm what the antelope saw. All the animals came gathering for a row-call. Opuro (squirrel, the collector) the bookkeeper started by calling out names and if they were present, they responded present. Akura twima (wild mouse); present, Apotokura meefi (Sahyadris forest rat); present, dr. Okusia (Bush Rat); present, judge Adanko (Rabbit); present, Otwee Kwabena Agyanka (Cat); present, lawyer Kutagene; present, Owansane Kwegyan; present, Sisi Kwabrafo; present, Koo Sebo (Tiger); present,3sereum Saa Gata (Lion); present, 3sono (Elephant); present, Apane dankwa (Bat); no response. He mentioned the name, again and again, no response. He immediately stopped row-calling because they figured out who was missing. The antelope came forward to say they need not investigate anymore. They should ask the Tiger because he has the most knowledge of what happened to the Bat. The Tiger denied his testimony. The elders at the panel concluded if that’s what the Tiger is saying, he should be taken to the hospital for an X-ray, better yet to be operated on by Dr. Kusia to clear his name and if Apanedankwa (Bat) is not found in the belly of Tiger, he will be free from all charges. Unfortunately for the Tiger, Dr. Kusia who successfully operated on the Tiger did find out that the Tiger had eaten the bat. How did this come about everyone's thoughts? For an explanation and a fear judgment, they trailed the case at court. His family found him a great representation, lawyer Kutadene defended him. During the trial, judge Adanko (Rabbit) and the first witness the antelope were ready for his testimony. The Tiger was asked to explain how the Bat got in his stomach. With no hesitation, he started to explain. His lawyer concluded that the Bat had it coming. In his closing argument, he commented his client is not guilty because the Bat saw the Tiger's leniency to be his weakness and in the process, he died a foolish death. The juror came back with a verdict that proved the tiger was not guilty.
