A so-called soldier from Ghana is taking legal financial action against the (MoD) Ministry of Defence for the grand sum of £150,000, making the absurd claim that they did not adequately shelter him from the cold British weather. 

 

 

The Ghanaian, Michael Asiamah, brought up the apparent breach of a duty of care which results in damage (negligence) claim not long after he suffered a “cold-related” illness after routine military training on the Salisbury Plain in March 2016. 

 

 

Mr. Asiamah’s legal team make the claim that, the thirty -six year-old cold-soldier endured numb limbs as he took part in 18-hours of training during Exercise Scorpion in windy and cold weather. 

 

 

 

 

The chilly West African explained to the High Court that the senior ranking soldiers had failed to bring him sufficient warm clothing such as  socks, gloves, and boots before the military exercise, he claims that he was forced to endure five hours of lectures in chilly British weather whilst dressed as a civilian. 

 

 

His lawyers made the case that the Ghanaian soldier was forced to suffer the moderately cold conditions whilst his superiors were aware of that fact that people from Africa are more likely to suffer from cold weather, they quoted a 2009 military study where it revealed people from Africa are 30 times more likely that they will endure cold-related illness than native indigenous European people. 

 

 

A soldier is man or woman who serves their nation with pride and dedication, not a coward that blames cold-weather and their racial physical characteristics as an excuse for their laughable inadequacy.

One thought on “Strength in diversity? African soldier sues Ministry of Defence over cold British weather

  1. A SOLDIER ? A proper soldier can and would endure more without whining like a baby , that’s outside his whimpering personality . If he is what protects the country we are doomed .
    What next firemen suing for getting burned , doctors suing for contracting viruses , carpenter sued for getting splinters or maybe mechanics suing for getting dirty overalls , SACK HIM HE IS A BURDEN NOT A BENEFIT TO THE UNIFORM.
