Ghanaians woke this morning to the shocking and unfortunate news that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP for Mfantseman Constituency, Ekow Quansah Hayford has been killed by gunmen suspected to be armed robbers.

The deceased politician MP was shot on the Abeadze Dominase–Abeadze Duadzi–Mankessim Road when returning from a campaign trip on Friday, October 9, 2020. Apparently, the MP was not targetted as it was a robbery operation but when the late MP identified himself as a politician, they murdered him saying he’s the cause of all their woes.

This is what an eyewitness said;

When the robbers started engaging the MP, then he [robber] said, ‘You politicians have made the country very hard to live in.’ They brought all of us down and asked us to lie prostrate so we thought they were going to shoot us. One stated that we are not after your life…so they asked the driver why he didn’t stop when he was asked to.

The torrential rainfall that hit Accra and its environs in the early hours of Saturday has brought untold hardship to people living in water-logged areas with poor or no drainage systems.

Videos making rounds on the internet give a very unfortunate account of massive rainwater that has overtaken the Accra stretch of the Kasoa-Accra highway.

The water has completely ripped the road apart as houses and cars are submerged in the running water. Individuals and people living in these areas are counting their losses as they look on with apprehension.

The havoc flooding causes in these areas especially at Kasoa Old Barrier is a known phenomenon but nothing has been done in the past years to avert the situation which has left residents with no option when the rains come down.

Social media has gone aghast at the level of water that is simply destroying everything in its way and are blaming leaders for sitting aloof and allowing the drainage system of many parts of the capital left unattended to.

Although the indiscipline of residents can be blamed for this kind of disasters, many believe the leadership of the country has failed Ghanaians which has consequentially left citizens to be swimming in rainwater every time it rains.

“Ghanaians should be blamed for the killing of MPs because they hate politicians” – Deputy Defence Minister

, “Ghanaians should be blamed for the killing of MPs because they hate politicians” – Deputy Defence Minister, GlitzEmpire

Deputy Minister of Defence Major (Rtd) Derrick Oduro, is pointing accusing fingers at the populace for the recent killings of Members of Parliament (MPs) and politicians in general.

His assertion comes on the back of the grim news that was reported yesterday announcing the gruesome murder of the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman, Hon. Ekow Quansah Hayford.

According to him, Ghanaians are not ready to accept the call by MPs for the beefing up of their personal security since they are vulnerable to attacks and robbery.

Speaking and reacting to the death of the Mfantseman MP on Nhyira FM, Major (Rtd) Oduro said Ghanaians refusal for politicians to be protected by the state is the reason they are being killed thus the blame should go to them.

“This is not the first time a Parliamentarian has been attacked and shot dead. It happens all the time in all successive governments. But anytime we raise concerns that the three arms of government need protections as prescribed by the constitution, Ghanaians get angry in regards to the request.”

“They say, why should we offer protection to MPs including the media. You lead the cause and chastise us as if Members of Parliament are aliens as if they are from a far country.

Major Oduro called for the protection of politicians and especially parliamentarians who have become the target of unscrupulous individuals who are bent on terminating their lives out of sheer hate and animosity.

Some armed robbers shot Mr Ekow Quansah Hayford and his driver, Issah, in the early hours of Thursday after they had blocked the road linking Abeadze Dominase and were robbing commuters of their belongings.
