Abronye DC, Dela Edem want gov’t to destroy witches camps completely

Dela Edem, a Communication team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is urging government to destroy the witches camps completely.

He believes victimization of the alleged witches at the camps will continue if government carry out its decision to renovate where the alleged witches are kept.

The NDC communicator, speaking on UTV’s Adekye Nsroma, added that the old women who are being kept in the camps should be given financial assistance from the social welfare.

The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Maamle Morrison, has revealed that a lot of the women who are accused of being witches and are kept in witches camps are scared to return home out of fear of being victimized.

To that end, she said, the government is planning to renovate where they are kept at the moment in order to make it a befitting place for humans to dwell.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, September 2, Ms Morrison said government wants to turn these camps into a safe haven for these elderly women.

The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe Abronye, popularly known as Abronye DC, says keeping these old women in the camps are infringed on their fundamental human rights.

He was of the view that government should step in and assist these alleged witches financially, saying that the camps must be destroyed completely.

A lot of the alleged witches have refused to go home because of fear. Families have refused to accept them and where the family even wants to accept them, the society says no.
