Member of Parliament for Klottey-Korley, Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings has accused government of politicising the distribution of relief items meant for persons who have been badly affected by the partial lockdown.
The NDC MP made the allegation when she provided food for some head porters (Kayayei) in Accra.
“This is a humanitarian crisis, women and children are hungry. They are locked down because it’s not their fault the virus is in Ghana.”
“People are literally being asked to show evidence of their party membership before being given food.
“This is not acceptable [and] this is very sad [because] the virus does not show whether you are NDC or NPP before it infects you,” Zanetor Rawlings alleged.
Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings is not the only MP from the opposition to make such an allegation. Former President Mahama and several others in the NDC have all made such allegations.
