Majority Leader, Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu Apportioned Blames On NDC As The Caused of His Attack By Suame Residents -See His Statement

Major Leader and Member of Parliament for Suame, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has alleged that the members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) were behind an attack on him by some persons in his constituency.

Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu suggested that an NDC group in his constituency, who were not willing to listen to him, during a visit started hooting at and pelting him with sachet water.

“There is an NDC group behind the post office area and I believe that the third group that came, we met and they said they were not prepared to listen to any government official and that the NPP has disappointed them and so on. I think that group was led by our opponent.

“There is an NPP group by the road side … When the people (NDC group) got there, they overturned the elephant carving and started stamping on it and that is where they started shouting ‘NPP away, Nana Addo away’

“I am saying I suspect them,” Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, who is also the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, said.

He added that despite his suspicions he thinks that the concerns raised by the residents were legitimate and will be dealt with.

Some artisans at the Suame Magazine in the Suame Municipality of the Ashanti Region on Monday, July 18, 2022, hooted and pelted their Member of Parliament with sachet water over the bad state of roads in the Constituency.

The MP was there to inspect the abandoned Suame highway, which the artisans said had claimed a life due to its deteriorated nature.

Some angry artisans, upon hearing of the arrival of the MP, thronged the highway and started hooting, pelting him with sachets of water.

They also blocked some roads in videos sighted by GhanaWeb.

According to the MCE, the MP managed to make it to a meeting point where he met with leaders of the workers’ groups and explained to them what was being done to address their concerns.

Denounce Akamba; He Does Not Deserve To Be National Organizer – Blakk Rasta To NDC

Denounce Akamba; He Does Not Deserve To Be National Organizer – Blakk Rasta To NDC

Popular Radio Host and Musician, Blakk Rasta has tasked the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to disown pronouncement by its National Organizer, Joshua Akamba.

His call is as a result of comments made by Mr. Akamba suggesting the NDC made a mistake in firing Victoria Hamah for allegedly seeking to amass wealth.

Speaking on Kumasi based Ultimate FM Mr. Akamba said the party on hindsight would have retained the deputy minister and not acted on the pressure from the NPP.

“I think she was not given a fair treatment; I know Vicky as an honest woman, everybody aspires to make some money, she didn’t say I have made or there was no evidence that I have stolen, yet again we listened to the NPP and took that action.

“It was the NPP that pushed this action, directed our action, today I can tell you that Vicky cannot be a corrupt person, I know her. She is still an active member; I think she even contested Kintampo North or West.” He said.

But Blakk Rasta is least pleased about the comments of the National Organizer.

According to him, such comments should not be encouraged and could cost the party and its possible flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.

He predicts that the comment from Joshua Akamba could work against the fortunes of John Mahama and the NDC in the 2024 elections.

“These are the people who will make sure Mahama will not become president again. For this guy alone, Mahama will lose a million votes in the next elections. If I were the NDC, I would kick out this guy called Akamba right now.

Adding that, “the reason for which Victoria Hamah was kicked out, this guy is endorsing the same. You are in government and heard on tape saying that all you want is one million dollars and that is it. It’s not about the people you promised to serve, it is no more about the nation. It has nothing to do with the nation but your ego and selfishness of enriching yourself.

“You sit here and tell me Victoria Hamah was offered a raw deal. Such a fool. This guy is supposed to be who? National Organizer? The NDC should come out and denounced this guy and distance itself from his comments. I’m angry at this thing that I’m reading.” Blakk Rasta fumed on his show.

Ghana Will Not Recognize Any Ukraine Territory Annexed By Russia : Foreign Affairs Minister

Ghana Will Not Recognize Any Ukraine Territory Annexed By Russia : Foreign Affairs Minister

Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, says Ghana will not recognize any annexation of Ukrainian territories by the Russian Federation.

Addressing a special meeting of the United Nations (UN) Security Council on the maintenance of the peace and security of Ukraine in New York City today Thursday 22 September 2022, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey noted that Ghana remains committed to its position that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is in breach of international law and unjustified.

“We have expressed several times our principled position against the aggression on Ukraine which we consider to be a disregard for the rules of international law and the principles of the charter (UN Charter).
Ukraine as a sovereign state and a member of this organization (UN) has every right, we believe, and indeed a responsibility to defend its territorial integrity and political independence,” Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said.

“Ghana does not, and will not recognize any territory that is unilaterally and forcefully acquired as dismembered from a sovereign entity,” Miss Botchwey added.

Cease fire

In her statement, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration reiterated Ghana’s call on the Russian Federation, to “immediately and unconditionally cease its operations, withdraw its troops from the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine”, and respect its western neighbour’s “sovereignty and political independence.”

“The need for a credible pathway for a genuine diplomatic process is urgent. The barrel of the gun does not provide such a pathway. It only leads to needless loss of lives and destruction on both sides. Indeed, the cost of the war has been high, not only for the parties, but also for the rest of the world,” Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said.

Proposed referenda

After stunning battlefield setbacks in the last two weeks, Russia moved to cement its grip on territory it occupies in eastern and southern Ukraine (Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk and Luhansk) as Kremlin proxies and associates announced plans on Tuesday 21 September 2022, for referendums on annexation to Russia, indicating a possible escalation of the seven-month-old war.

The Kremlin signaled that if Russia were to go forward with annexation, even if no other country recognized it, any further military action by Ukraine in those regions would be seen as an attack on Russia itself, justifying any military response by the nation with the world’s largest nuclear arsenal.

Partial mobilization

In what is seen by several international law experts as an escalation of Russia’s war in Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin, announced on Tuesday 21 September 2022, a “partial mobilization” of Russian citizens in what would see 300,000 reservists called up, according to the Defence Minister of Russia, Sergei Shoigu.

Putin in his announcement said those with military experience would be subject to conscription, and stressed that the decree, which was already signed, was necessary to “protect our homeland, its sovereignty and its territorial integrity.” The announcement by Putin has been received with widespread protests in Russia as some have sought to flee the country to escape the impending conscription.
