A vigil was on Thursday evening held for the Salifu Maase aka Mugabe, a presenter at the NDC affiliated radio station and two others Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who were sentenced to four months imprisonment by the Supreme Court.

The event brought together a large number of NDC supporters who thronged the premises of Montie FM in Accra in solidarity with the jailed members.

Alistair Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn, who were panelist on the Pampaso show were found guilty of scandalizing the court, defying and lowering the authority of the Supreme Court and bringing it into disrepute.

The two on June 29, warned judges of Ghana’s highest court to be wary of their conduct in the case involving the Electoral Commission and Mr Abu Ramadan if they did not want to suffer the fate of the three members of the bench who were shot to death and burnt on June 30, 1982 in the era of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC).

The Supreme Court handed a four months jail term each to the three men. They were additionally fined GHC 10,000 each payable by Thursday July 28, which failure to pay will attract another one month imprisonment.

Meanwhile, the NDC  ensured that the fine was paid by close of Thursday in compliance with orders of the Supreme Court.
