For the swift response by the state security service, a heated protest by residents of Whindo has been foiled. The road that leads to the peri-urban community was set on fire early this dawn. The protestors argued their calls on the local authorities and the Member of Parliament for Kwesimintsim of the Western Region, Joseph Mensah had fallen of deaf ears.
For many years even in 2016, these residents were all loud on local media demanding their road is fixed. Its replication this time makes one believe the issue of the road which has remained deplorable, will cause voters to vote mainly on this tangent against the government.
In a live situational report taken by Skyy Power Fm on Takoradi, it was disclosed that the road has been cleared allowing the Electoral Officers move their logistics to the various polling centers in the community. Things have returned to normalcy now, and the process is set to begin smoothly.
One interesting thing about the Kwesimintsim Constituency lies in the fact that the Ghana Police Service in its recent publication of flash spots [for electoral violence] excluded it from their list. It could be for a reason that, the District Police Command has over the past years acted professionally and crime rates have diminished substantially.
