Dear GhanaWeb reader,
The country was for the first time in this election year united against secessionist group insurgency which saw the group declaring independence of the Western Togoland part of the Republic of Ghana.
A series of attacks by the secessionist group, which were swiftly quelled this week, rather incited a debate on the history of the unification of the Western Togoland and the Gold Coast after a United Nations supervised plebiscite that endorsed the union. There was also a debate on the approach of Ghana’s intelligence and security forces towards ending the insurgency and the government’s level of application of the law to serve as a deterrent.
Amid the Western Togoland brouhaha, campaigning towards the December elections was ongoing despite coronavirus fears. Precautionary measures are being grossly disregarded by both politicians who enacted laws to punish flouters, and the ordinary citizens.
Meanwhile, MP for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has still not showed up in court over his contempt case after insulting judges. Also, the chilling details of the gruesome murder of Professor Yaw Benneh, a law lecturer at the University of Ghana, are unfolding after his cleaner confessed to killing him in a robbery attempt.
