    JUST IN: Zongos want SCHOOLS not MORTUARIES – Bawumia replies Mahama

    The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has reacted to the proposal of the National Democratic Congress  (NDC) to construct mortuaries in Islamic Communities, popularly known as Zongos in Ghana when voted into power.

    John Mahama in an interview monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com revealed his intention to build not less than 300 morgues in Muslim communities should he win the December general election.

    “Facilitate the establishment of mortuaries in accordance with Islamic customs and practices and collaborate with the Ministry of Health to set up focal teams responsible for procedures that are compliant with Islamic customs and practices at all state morgues…,” he stated in an interview.

    But the former President has been mocked by those who think the promise is just a political gimmick.

    Critics, mostly from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), could not fathom why he [Mahama] will make such a promise when Muslims don’t keep their dead at the morgue.

    Commenting on this on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, Dr Bawumia said he was shocked the former President could make such a comment.

    “Mortuaries are not the priority of Zongos. There are better things we need…we are will build one model school in Zongos when voted for again…we will impact knowledge not mortuaries…,” he said.

    He added that the NPP has demonstrated that they could do this by building several astro turfs.

    “We have built 10 Astro and Green Turfs across the country…40 students from Zongo communities have been sent abroad to be trained as Medical Doctors and we are planning to construct 16 model SHSs…,” he added.
