Aggrieved customers of DKM, a microfinance company in the Brong Ahafo region, have threatened to go on with their demonstration despite the move by police to stop them.
The embittered customers, who lost their investments have planned to stage a demonstration on Saturday, September 17, same day the ruling National Democratic Congress(NDC) would be launching its manifesto at Sunyani.
According to the Spokesperson of the group, Maxwell Mahama, all they needed was to inform the police about their scheduled demonstration which they did and would, therefore, go on with it as scheduled.
Though the police have secured Motion of Notion from the Sunyani High Court which makes it impossible for the group to proceed with the demonstration before September 20, the Spokesperson insist that they will still stage their demonstration.
According to him, they were shocked by the attempt of the police to stop them after discussing the routes they were going to use, insisting that they could not provide the demonstrators with adequate security because they would be occupied by the manifesto launch.
“We only needed to inform the police which we did and would not need their protection, so the demonstration still holds,” he stated.
The development if not addressed could destroy the manifesto launch of the NDC on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the opposition New Patriotic Party(NPP) would launch its manifesto on October 8 at Tamale.
The delay according to the party, is part of efforts to avoid the NDC from ‘stealing’ their ideas.
