Prior to the New Patriotic Party’s upcoming primaries which have led to the disqualification of over 50 aspirants for the parliamentary position, stirred the anger of supporters of the disqualified persons, causing them to ruin curses against their leaders and executives who have hand in it. Last week, we reported that a similar thing happened in some parts of the Ashanti region. This time around, it is the Western Region.
The Upper Dixcove Traditional Council in the Ahanta West Municipality of the Western Region, on Tuesday, performed rituals asking their gods to deal ruthlessly with some NPP stalwarts and the MP for the area Kojo Kum.
They accuse the MP of hurling insults at the Paramount chief of Upper Dixcove, Obrempong Hima Dekyi XIV, and the chiefs of Ahanta during a WhatsApp chat by the Member of Parliament and his supporters.
Donning red and black war apparel, 48 chiefs from 48 communities under the leadership of the upper Dixcove chief, Obrempong Hima Dekyi XIV chanted war songs, holding bottles of schnapps and white ram in a procession towards the Upper Dixcove palace, looking furious.
They called on their Paramount chief to formally inform him of some unprintable words in audio used on the paramountcy by the MP and some NPP members.
The chiefs who performed several rituals from morning to midnight on Tuesday said the MP, together with his supporters will all face the wrath of the gods if they make any attempt to step on any land belonging to the upper dixcove paramountcy.
Currently, they are demanding the member of parliament and the NPP in the region by giving them two-week ultimatum to come and render his apology within the above name period of time or face the consequences if they should step on 48 communities in Dixcove to campaign.
