A non-political pressure group Krachi Youth Association in the newly-created Oti Region has debunked a publication holding the association responsible for burning Hon. Michael Gyato’s 200 acre mango plantation and teak farm for his influence in making Dambai the capital of Oti Region rather than Kete-Krachi.

The fire is believed to have been set on the midnight of Wednesday 14th February, 2019, less than 24 hours after the burning of the Salaga South New Patriotic Party Constituency Office by a section of the youth Tuesday February 12, 2019 over the selection of Damongo as Capital of another new region, the Savannah Region.

But according to the pressure group, the allegation of burning Hon. Gyato’s mango and teak farm is not only frivolous, mischievous and misleading but also treachery perpetrated by a consummate liar.

In a press statement copied to Peacefmonline.com, Krachi Youth Association says there is no reason for any Krachi native to set ablaze the farm of Hon. Michael Gyato and also to harm any of his relations domiciled in Krachi West for merely influencing the capital of Oti Region to be located at Dambai in the Krachi East which still forms part of the Krachi Tradition Area.

The group opined that Hon. Michael Gyato is their brother who was born, raised and nurtured in Kete-Krachi and so there is no way someone from Kete-Krachi will destroy his properties.

“He owns a house, and other properties in Kete-Krachi; all these are intact as we speak”, the group revealed.

SUBJECT: NPP MP'S 200 ACRE MANGO PLANTATION BURNT DOWN FOR INFLUENCING OTI CAPITAL.

It has come to the attention of the Krachi Youth Association about news going rounds in the media that the MP of Krachi-East, Honorable Michael Gyato's 200 acre mango and teak farm was burnt because he influenced the sighting of the Oti regional capital at Dambai against the wishes of the people of Kete Krachi.

We wish to state categorically that, this allegation is not only frivolous, mischievous and misleading but also treachery perpetrated by a consummate liar. We also wish to place on record that, the people of Krachi are peace loving, matured and well-mannered people who will never indulge in such acts of extreme callousness as being alleged.

Facts

It must be known to the public that, there is no reason why any Krachi native will set ablaze Hon. Michael Gyato’s farms nor harm any of his relations domiciled in Krachi West merely because he influenced the capital of Oti region to be located at Dambai in the Krachi East which still forms part of the Krachi Traditional Area.

Hon. Michael Gyato was born, raised and nurtured in Kete-Krachi. He is our brother and so there is no way someone from Kete-Krachi will destroy his properties. He owns a house, and other properties in Kete-Krachi. All these are intact as we speak.

Krachis and Nchumurus are like conjoins. We are the same people and we respect, cherish and value our consanguinity. Our dialects are intelligible. Again, intermarriages amongst us have deepened our relationship. Also, Dambai, now Krachi East, was carved out of Krachi District in 2004 and we have never begrudged our Nchumuru brothers and sisters for any reason; we have co-existed since time in memorial.

The very farm in question is about 6 km away from Dambai in the Krachi East. While the other one is also in the Krachi Nchumuru district. This means both are far from Kete-Krachi in the Krachi west district. Our checks indicate that the farm got burnt almost a month before the declaration of Dambai as capital of Oti by the President on 15th February, 2019. In this regard, it will be preposterous and wicked for any serious minded person to link the sighting of Dambai as regional capital to the arson.

Indiscriminate bush burning around this season may have caused the disaster. Many other people’s farms were burnt as well around the same time Hon. Michael Gyato’s farm got burnt. Our checks also indicate that it is not true the entire 200acres of the mangoes and teak trees got burnt.

We hereby call on the public to disregard this misleading story which is aimed at tarnishing the image of the good people of Krachi. We also entreat the Honorable MP to confirm whether or not his farm was burnt by the people of Krachi. Krachis and the Nchumurus will mutually need each other for a myriad of reasons. Krachis will therefore never engage in this bestial act against a brother they raised.

Finally, we welcome Dambai as our new regional capital and call upon all people residing in the Oti region to work together to ensure a rapid development of our respective districts.

 We therefore call on all media houses to stop circulating this palpable falsehood and spare us the moment to think of how to develop our area.

Long Live Ghana

 Long Live Oti

 Long live Kaakye

Thank you
