Former Ambassador Contracts Mallam To Kill MP?

New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Sunyani East, Kwasi Ameyaw—Kyeremeh has accused an aspirant in the upcoming parliamentary primary in the constituency, George Kumi of plotting to kill him.

The sitting MP said on Adom News on Friday that the former Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria and Libya has contracted a Malam from Savelugu in the Northern Region to ‘eliminate him’ from this world.

“The Malam known as Alhaji Musah was brought from Savelugu to Sunyani to perform rituals on me to either kill me or cause the delegates to forget me so that he can win the Parliamentary primaries…,” he alleged.

The NPP has opened nominations for its members to pick forms and contest Parliamentary primaries to be organized in all 275 constituencies on June 13, 2015l.

The intense competition between the two political rivals in the same party has led to the accusations and counter accusations including plots to kill one another.

Hon Ameyaw—Kyeremeh alleges that the Malam demanded various items including a black cat, black dog and the foetus of an animal. All these items, he said, would have been used to perform rituals on him to ensure he does not win the upcoming primaries.

“But I am not afraid of juju because I believe in God…” he said.

But the former Diplomat maintained in an interview that he has not taken any such step, insisting that the MP was only running away from his shadows. “I'm a Catholic who also believes in God so why would I do such a thing…for what purpose and to achieve what interest…I  am sure he has Malaria and does not know what he is saying…,” he replied.

He added that the MP is making the allegations in a bid to find an excuse for his impending loss in the upcoming primaries.

The Hon Ameyaw-Kyeremeh however insists he would produce strong evidence to back his claim. “If he dares me, I will produce strong evidence for the world to know his evil machinations…,” he said.

He further threatened to name the people involved in the scheme, insisting that he has the car number of the vehicle they used to transport the Malam and who he is currently staying with.
