Three executives of the Dormaa Central New Patriotic Party (NPP) have been fined by Dormaa Traditional Council for flouting some customary laws of the council.
The three, Kwame Asamoah, Co-ordinator; Seth Asare, Organiser and William Nyarko, Communication Officer, are to provide 11 sheep, one carton of J.H.Henkes Aromatic Schnapps and a cash of GH¢2,000.00 within a fortnight.
They have been accused of invoking curses on activities of other political parties and the chiefs and people of Alikoassue, Bawurekofikrom, Brebrekrom, and Sikwaakrom, all border towns within the Dormaa Central Municipality.
Messrs Asamoah, Asare and Nyarko invoked the curse to deter anyone with the intention of mobilising foreign nationals across the border towns to register them during the limited voters’ registration exercise.
A female linguist, Odeneho Akosua Fima Dwabeng II, the Paramount Queenmother of the Dormaa Traditional Area, heard about the curse on Gifts FM.
Consequently, Odeneho Dwabeng, on behalf of the Traditional Council, summoned the constituency executives of the NPP, including the three, and reprimanded them for engaging in an abominable act in the traditional area.
She also invited the management of the three local FM radio stations- Gifts FM, Dormaa FM and Voice FM to question them for broadcasting news about the curse and cautioned them not to allow the political parties to use their platforms to foment trouble.
Barimah Buabasa Oppong Yaw Ababio, the Gyaasehene of the Dormaa Traditional Area, pleaded for clemency on behalf of the three executives and rendered an apology to the paramount queen mother and the entire Traditional Council with a promise that they would be of good behaviour, Daily Guide reported.
