Seasoned Journalist, Kwesi Pratt has thrown tantrums at the Electoral Commission (EC) for condemning the violent acts at registration centres across the nation.

Self-Defence

Minister for Special Development Initiatives, Hawa Koomson brandished a gun at the Step to Christ voters’ registration centre in the Awutu Senya East constituency in the Central Region on Monday, July, 20, 2020.

According to her, she got a tip that her political opponent had bused some unknown persons to participate in the ongoing registration exercise in the constituency.

She said she went to the center herself with her gun to protect herself and her people but fired shots when chaos erupted.

The Minister claimed she acted in self-defence after fearing for her life.

“I realised the lives of my people were in danger. So I wanted to scare the people. I fired the warning shots. I didn’t direct it at anybody,” she told Adom News.

EC Condemns Violence

Following the Minister’s action, the Electoral Commission issued a statement to register their displeasure with the chaotic situations at some registration centers.

The EC accused political party supporters and sympathizers of perpetrating the violent acts.
