Volta region MPs storm Ketu South over ‘military intimidation’


Members of the Volta Region caucus in Parliament are expected in Ketu South as part of an NDC delegation to the Constituency Monday.

This is in solidarity with residents following an increased security presence in the area which critics say is an intimidation tactic.

Some residents who have spoken to JoyNews allege harassment and intimidation from the troops.

According to the National Democratic Congress, the troops have been sent there to intimidate residents into abstaining from the upcoming voter registration exercise which begins Tuesday.

Governing New Patriotic Party MP K.T. Hammond lends credence to this.

According to the lawmaker from Adansi Asokwa, the troops are to ensure foreigners to not get to register to vote in Ghana’s elections.
