The former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has called on Ghanaians to shame the National Communications officer of his party, Sammy Gyamfi for politicizing crime.
He added that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako popularly called ‘Wontumi’ should be treated same for also politicizing the kidnapping involving the two Canadian women.
An obviously angry Koku Anyidoho said Wontumi and Sammy Gyamfi need to be cast out like demons for politicizing a serious crime like kidnapping
He described them as a disgrace to their respective political parties and Ghana as a whole.
The former Deputy Scribe of NDC said its high time politicians from both sides learnt how to watch their utterances in order not to destroy the nation.
"As part of the mindset revolution, let us hoot at politicians who politicize crime, lets cast them out like demons, it’s a disgrace for politicians to be politicising crime, I feel like throwing up.
NPP, NDC disgracefully politicizing the kidnapping of the Canadian women in Kumasi, both of them are saying Seidu Mba wore their opponent’s t-shirt, and so what?" he said.
Koku Anyidoho who has been missing in the political space for some time now promised to ensure that politicians who politicize crimes are shunned by Ghanaians.
His comment comes after Wontumi's comment in an interview with Kumasi-based Nhyira FM linked one of the suspects involved in the Canadian women kidnapping Seidu Yakubu Mba to the NDC’s vigilante group, the Hawks.
