NDC protesters clash with police in Kumasi

The Ashanti regional general secretary of the NDC, Kwame Zu, says no intimidation by the police and the governing NPP will prevent NDC activists from pursuing their agenda

Members of the Kumasi police had to apply force on Sunday 20 December to disperse rampaging National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters who stormed the Manhyia Divisional Command to demand the release of colleagues.

The protesters poured on to the streets of the Ashanti regional capital on Sunday morning as the largest opposition party intensified its call for the annulment of the result of the 2020 general election.


But the supporters, who maintained that one of their colleagues had been arrested, engaged the police in a near-scuffle, injuring a number of officers in the process.

The Manhyia divisional crime officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police Charles Appiah, who denied the claim, said the police were yet to make any arrest.

The NDC claims that the 2020 elections were rigged in favour of the sitting president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The Ashanti regional general secretary of the party, Kwame Zu, said no intimidation by the police and government will prevent the activists from pursuing their agenda.


On Friday (18 December), 26 sympathisers of the National Democratic Congress were granted bail of GHC10,000 with one surety each.

They were charged with failure to notify the police and unlawful assembly, but all of them pleaded not guilty.


The lead counsel for the accused , Francis Xavier Sosu, prayed the court to admit his clients to bail, which the court granted.

The 26 supporters of the NDC were arrested by the police for demonstrating unlawfully at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission (EC).

The aggrieved supporters gathered at the EC to protest the election results declared in favour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The supporters want the chair of the EC, Jean Mensa, to declare the results in favour of John Mahama because they claim the polls were rigged.
