As I write, I had received a short video clip on my WhatsApp page in which the self-styled Kumawuhene Barima Sarfo Tweneboa Kodua, known in private life as Dr Yaw Sarfo, has revealed that he will vote for NDC as he usually does. He said this in a meeting with a news reporter, Kumawuhemaa Nana Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah and a few of his elders and people of Kumawu.
I would have loved to attach the video to this publication but it has not yet got on to the YouTube. Once it does, which I shall make sure it does, I shall publish a part 2 of this publication in which the video, along with others depicting the dilapidated state of the Kumawu market, a road and how a refuse dump in Kumawu-Bodomase is washed into a source of drinking river (water) in Bodomase when there is a downpour, will be published. Upon all these deficiencies in development in Kumawuman, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kumawu Sekyere District has the shameless audacity to constantly appear in radio and Television stations/studios to spew out utter lies to the contrary.
He claims how the NPP Government under His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has brought this or that development to Kumawuman. I had on some occasions tasked some people in Kumawu to conduct investigations into his assertions. I take this initiative because I do not want to publish any falsities about anyone but the gospel truth. In all such instances, his assertions had turned out to be almost fallacies.
Following my knowledge of the law regarding defamation of character and its consequences when you get sued for it, I always make sure I have credible evidence before I put out stories about people or situations hence always carrying out investigations despite the monetary expenses I have to incur.
Once, I published an article on Ghana internet news portal on 22 June 2018 titled, “Sekyere Kumawu DCE Is Playing a Big Time Role of Spin Doctor for NPP”. The web link below takes readers to the full content of my story. What I warned the DCE against is exactly what is happening now with the self-styled Kumawuhene Dr Yaw Sarfo and Kumawuhemaa Abenaa Serwaah Amponsah declaring how they vote and how they will be casting their vote come general elections 2020.
I do not blame them at all. I agree with them 100%. Why should a hospital totally paid for by the NDC government which is halfway completed be left to ruin, tormented by the vagaries of the weather to render the money so far invested useless? If there was any perception of the cost been bloated by the Mahama-NDC administration, should that fact alone lead to the abandonment of the project? Why should the project not be continued while the necessary measures are taken to get the cost reduced or those that awarded the contract investigated for causing financial loss to the State?
Dr Yaw Sarfo voting NDC in 2020 is no news to me at all and it does not surprise me. Kumawuhemaa, Dr Yaw Sarfo and almost all the “ahenfie” people are big time NDC stalwarts. From the late Kumawuhene Barima Asumadu Sakyi II through to most of the Ankaase “royal” family members to the current dubiously Asantehene-installed Kumawuhene, Dr Yaw Sarfo, are all NDC people if not NDC fanatics.
Nevertheless, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo allowed them to choose someone for him to be appointed as the DCE for Kumawu Sekyere District. No wonder that they chose that young 30-something year old man in the person of Mr Samuel Addai Agyekum, a liar and an NDC within but deceptively outwardly NPP guy, to become the DCE. Birds of the same feathers flock together. They are on a mission to do whatever they can to cost NPP votes in Kumawu constituency if not to let NPP lose the Kumawu seat.
I shall be publishing a recently privately conducted investigations into the Kumawu market and others which the DCE claims to have been completed or almost completed but which are disgustingly in eyesore state; nowhere near a tenth of their completion.
Should His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo fail to reshuffle and shuffle off some of his appointees, among the casualties of which the DCE of Kumawu Sekyere District must be one, I am afraid, the NPP are heading for election ditch come Election 2020.
I report what the masses are saying which the President is in no position to hear all. He is only one person with two ears so his ears cannot be all over the place. Subsequently, it is my duty as well as that of other concerned Ghanaians wishing his success at the presidency to find means to convey the facts on the ground to his attention.
Stay tuned for more info from the fearless but truthful son of the Kumawu/Asiampa soil. Those plotting against the collective welfare of Kumawuman and her subjects shall fail.
