The District Chief Executive of Atwima Kwanwoma, Nana Okyere-Tawia Antwi, has unleashed some strong lashes on some of his constituents for flouting social distancing rules which have come about as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

In a video captured by Adom FM and currently going round on social media, Nana Okyere-Tawia Antwi was seen whipping some residents in the district who were clamouring for what appeared like relief items.

The DCE, who was clearly peeved over the incident was seen using the cane to drive away some constituents because they were going against the World Health Organization's guidelines of ensuring social distancing.

Nana Okyere-Tawia Antwi who was seen in an ash Lacoste and pair of jeans angrily drove away the constituents and slammed shut a sliding glass window through which people were communicating and receiving free items.

The video showed sacks of sachet water packed in front of a house in the district which appeared to be serving as a relief point where items were being given out for free following a government directive.

In the video, many people were seen surrounding the house and standing very close to each other as the chatted and scrambled for the goodies.

Their action, in the face of the partial lockdown, could put their own lives at risk over the probability of contracting the novel coronavirus.

It is probably that the DCE, in a bid to ensure compliance, resorted to using the rod to correct the social distancing anomaly which was being perpetrated by his own people.
