- Vigilantism has been a topical issue for sometime now
- Opinion leader of Yalwa Zongo, in Kumasi, has said more than 90 percent of vigilante groups in the country were recruited from the Zongo area
An opinion leader of Yalwa Zongo, one of the Zongo communities in Kumasi, Alhaji Sani, has said more than 90 percent of vigilante groups in the country were recruited from the Zongo communities
He described the development as worrying as the emergence of these vigilante groups were seen as ‘symbols of political disruptions’ that appear to deepen a negative perception about Zongo youths of the country.
He observed that contrary to these perceptions, Zongo youths are very hardworking. He opined that the people of Yalwa Zongo, in the Subin Constituency, are, therefore, in support of those who genuinely desire to help create job opportunities for the youths.
Alhaji Sani made these remarks when an aspiring Member of Parliament for the Subin Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Villey Acheampong, donated some food items to the Babul Salam Mosque at Yalwa Zongo, in Kumasi.
Acheampong, said, in the spirit of supporting the prayer offerings of the Muslim community for the good of the country and all mankind in this Ramadan period, he considered it selfless to offer something to the Babul Salam Mosque.
He also appealed to the Zongo youths to let the peace that has existed since the commencement of the fasting to continue, while urging them to also desist from being used by any corrupt-minded politician to pursue any bad agenda.
