cash for vote saga: campaign team chases delegates to refund GHs 3,000 each after loosing parliamentary seat

www.leakynews.net  has picked up intelligence that the campaign team of the defeated incumbent Member of Parliament for Atwima Kwanwoma District Hon Dr. Appiah Kubi  are busily tracking delegates to claim back monies which were dashed out to them (delegates), subject to  the condition of voting for the MP in the just ended NPP parliamentary primaries.

Per information coming in, the team is led by one Mercy Mensah, including a police officer, two macho-men among others. It has been whispered into the ears of this medium that they started the operation this morning around 2:00am, chasing delegates at their various homes, knocking on their doors in demand of a refund of GHs 3,000 from each delegate.

One delegate who identified himself as Ebenezer Kusi  Mpaini, an NPP organizer for  Atwima Akyeremade electoral area narrated his ordeal to www.leakynews.net.

This is what he said; “… After returning from church, I commenced taking a rest when a neighbor came to inform me that  some individuals are in to see. As  I came out to check out who they were, I discovered that they were the campaign team of Hon Dr. Appiah Kubi and among them were Mercy, a CID officer who stays at Akyeremade, two community police personnel and two macho men.

I immediately asked them the reason for their visit and they replied that Dr. Appiah Kubi has sent them to collect back the money I took from them before the primaries. ….But I told them point blank that the money is not with me in the house  and that it has been deposited at the Bank.”.

Mr. Ebenezer Mpiani disclosed that the team threatened to curse him and seize his motor bike if he fails to refund the money.

An eye witness who is also a resident of Benyenase of Akyeremade electoral area narrated how the same campaign team were fiercely resisted by dwellers of the area  when they(campaign team) attempted to reclaim the same amount of money GH3,000 from his mother who is a delegate and an NPP Women Organiser for the area. He gave her name as Georgina Serwaa.

Taking his side of the matter, Hon Dr. Appiah Kubi  told www.leakynews.net that he has not sent anybody out to take back monies from the delegates.

“I’ve not gone anywhere today. I have sent nobody to take monies from delegates. Tell those who went there that I have not sent them. I have not even stepped out of my house”, he told www.leakynews.net  exclusively.
