NDC foot-soldiers to protest sentencing of jailed trio

A number of NDC foot-soldiers are planning to hit the streets today in protest of the Supreme Court ruling against the Montie trio.

The host of the show, Salifu Masse popularly known as Mugabe and two other panellists, Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn were sentenced by the Supreme Court Wednesday, July 27, for contemptuous comments they made against the judges.

However, the ruling National Democratic Congress has said in a statement that the ruling was too harsh and could stifle media freedom. Some irate members of the party want the president to overturn the ruling and grant the contemnors a presidential pardon.
