The people of Kyebi in the Akyem Abuakwa traditional area of the Eastern region are protesting against the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwame Zu for his abusive and provocative statements directed at the Okyehene, Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin.
According to the protesters, Mr. Zu last week had suggested that the Okyenhene shared a common source of drinking water with animals until former President John Dramani Mahama gave the people potable water.
The group wants the NDC Secretary to retract and apologise for the comparison made in the said presentation or face their wrath.
Earlier reports gathered by The Ghana Report revealed Kwame Zu, who is the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC, last Thursday stated during the protest by the Coalition for National Sovereignty that the Okyehene competed with animals for water in various unsafe sources until the former President provided water for residents of Kyebi which is the hometown of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“If this Kejetia edifice had been in Kyebi won’t Akufo-Addo open it for his people to use? What development has he brought to Asanteman…even his own hometown his people were competing for drinking water with animals, John Mahama had to provide potable water for his kinsmen. Until John Mahama provided water for him, Okyehene was drinking with animals”, he said.
