-Angry clients of DKM and Diamond Micro-Finance Ltd have invoked curses on governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Kofi Wampah
- The clients have argued that the governor did nothing to ensure that their investments were released to them
- Leader of the irate group says 61 affected clients have so far committed suicide
Angry clients of the controversial DKM and Diamond Micro-Finance Limited at Nkoranza in the Brong-Ahafo region have invoked curses on the governor of the Central Bank, Dr. Kofi Wampah.
So far, the reason(s) for the invocation of curses has been premised on president Mahama's State of the Nation's address in which he blamed the governor for the lack of effective supervision of micro-finance institutions - a statement which is said to have given the aggrieved customers reason to believe he ( the governor) did little to ensure that the investors get their funds back.
"The struggle will never end until we get our monies back and God will punish whoever played a role in the loss of our monies, 61 lives have already been lost through suicide and we are not going to sit down for more souls to be lost. We are fighting till our last breath to ensure that we get our monies back.” said the leader of the Concerned Nkoranza Youth Association, Nana Nyarko.
Meanwhile the aggrieved demonstrators have stated their resolve not to participate in the November 7 elections as they would be mourning the death their lost souls between November 7 and December 7 and will therefore not participate in the 2016 elections.
Customers of the financial institutions are aggrieved because the accused persons of the micro-finance organisations convinced them of a 50 per cent interest offer on investments in three months. Based on the information, a number of people were said to have deposited various sums of money in the suspects’ companies. However, on the maturity dates, the clients found the offices of the suspects locked when they went to collect their money.
