Kwaku Bonsam summoned to appear before court
Popular Ghanaian fetish priest and independent parliamentary candidate for Offinso North constituency in the Ashanti region Kwaku Bonsam, has found himself in trouble for invoking the spirits of deities against the incumbent Member of Parliament for the constituency.
the Akomadan-Afrancho-based fetish priest, is facing the Asantehemaa, Nana Ama Konadu’s traditional court.
He is reported to have been summoned to appear before the court to answer for invoking the deities against another, an act reported to have been banned by Manhyia, the seat of the Golden Kingdom.
He allegedly rained curses on any electorate who do not reside in the constituency but decides to vote for Mr Ntim, who doubles as a Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development.
Since a ban was placed on such acts in the Ashanti Kingdom whoever violates it is summoned to appear before the Asantehemaa’s traditional court to answer questions and possibly face sanctions, reports say.
