Source: Rockson Adofo - Upon the declaration of Nana Akufo Addo as the President-elect of Ghana by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Charlotte Osei, the NPP supporters in Kumawu like their fellows in other towns, villages and cities across the country, exploded into spontaneous jubilation.
From a very reliable source via a telephone call to me, the NDC supporters at Kumawu Zongo were not amused at the jubilation by the NPP supporters who at the time were principally all Ashantis.

One Zongo lady by name Abiba of about forty years is said to have arranged one Yasil, a young boy of about eighteen years and his crew to stone the jubilating NPP supporters for no apparent reason. Abiba collected a heap of stones for the Zongo teenagers who used them as missiles, throwing them with maximum force to injure some of the jubilating NPP supporters. 

The jubilating NPP supporters had neither said anything bad against them nor attacked them yet, the NDC supporters did confront them using stones. Some people are said to have sustained various degrees of injuries.

Had it not been for the timely intervention by the Kumawu Police, the situation could have escalated into fatalities. This is because some NPP supporters started moving from other parts of Kumawu to the Zongo area when they were alerted to the incident.

As at writing, the police are understood to have barricaded the street leading to Kumawu Zongo to prevent any further clashes between the Zongo NDC supporters and the NPP supporters.
It is just unfortunate for such an incident to occur since the Zongo people and the Ashantis have been coexisting peacefully. 

The elders of the Kumawu Zongo are said to have expressed their profound regret at the untoward attitudes by their youths.

I pray that this type of incident does not happen anywhere else in Ghana as Nana Akufo Addo is the father for all and would not be happy to see Ghanaians fighting among themselves because of differences of political persuasions.

Well done to the Kumawu police for their sensible and timely intervention to prevent the bloodbath that could have ensued following the dastardly behavior of Abiba and her Zongo thugs.
