Actor and National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, John Dumelo, has unveiled a financial support programme worth GHC200,000 for Small to Medium scale Enterprises (SMEs) in his constituency.

According to communication from the aspirant shared on his Twitter page, the scheme is to help business owners such as those operating barbering salons, food sellers, retail shops and other such enterprises to effectively bounce back onto their feet after the Coronavirus pandemic.

Dumelo’s scheme will seek to extend credit facilities to business operators at zero percent (0%) interest rate, a move that has got many people on social media applauding the young would-be Parliamentarian.

Mr Dumelo’s intervention is seen by many watchers as a timely initiative as many businesses have collapsed or been forced to shut down due to the pandemic and even those currently operating are running under so much financial stress.

The actor’s programs also complements government’s initiative to support SMEs in the country with a stimulus package, even though the fine details of government’s programme are yet to be communicated.

Today In History: Exactly 41 Years Ago Today, The June 4th Uprising Occurred

Exactly 41 years ago on June 4th, 1979, Ghana’s history was to be changed forever as a massive revolution occurred, freeing Jerry John Rawlings from a death sentence and changing the dynamics of Ghanaian politics quite significantly.

Earlier on May 15th, 1979, Rawlings had led a group of junior army officers in an attempted overthrow of the government of the Supreme Military Council led by General FWK Akuffo.

Rawlings and his co-conspirators were arrested and imprisoned after their mutiny was quashed through the very instrumental efforts of the army commander, Major-General Odartey Wellington.

What was supposed to be a trial of Rawlings turned into a counter trial, after he (Rawlings) accused the government of massive corruption, insensitivity, and greed, thereby winning the hearts and minds of the junior soldiers and the populace, who were fed up with the bad governance.

On the night of June 3, 1979, a group of junior officers including Major Boakye Djan and enlisted personnel of the Fifth Battalion and the Reconnaissance Regiment in Burma Camp staged a bloody coup and freed Rawlings.

This uprising was again nearly quashed by the fine army commander, Major-General Odartey Wellington, who with his ADC alone, entered an armored car and exchanged fire with the mutineers for three continuous hours.

When he ran out of cartridges, he dashed to the Nima Police Station to surrender. Unfortunately, he was killed on the spot by military officers immediately he came out of the armored truck, marking the actual beginning of the uprising.

After the incident, all military installations were searched and senior military officers who were on the side of the Supreme Military Council (SMC II) were killed. It was on the same day that Col. Aninful, the president of the military tribunal that tried Rawlings and the junior officers on 15th May was killed. His wife and children who were also in the same room were shot. Many sympathizers of the previous government fled the country to seek asylum elsewhere.

The soldiers also rounded up three former heads of state; General F. K Akuffo, Ignatious Kutu Acheampong, and Afrifa for trial. They were subsequently executed by firing squad.

Founder and leader of Anointed Chapel Palace, Rev. Kweku Agyei Antwi (Rev. Obofuor) has been sued by a Ghanaian UK-based business man, Ohene Kwame Frimpong.

In a suit filed by Charles Frimpong through his lawyers, Awoonor Law Consultancy, Ohene Kwame Frimpong who is the owner of Salt Media GH claimed that the defendant, Rev. Obofuor had failed to pay him for services he rendered after agreements between them.

Mr Frimpong, according to the writ met the defendant through one of his employees who later informed him that the Plaintiff wanted to purchase a power plant for his use.

The Plaintiff stated he delivered the Power Plant worth GHC70,000 to the defendant together with his cousin at the defendant’s church in Achimota, Accra.

It went on further to explain that, after an assessment on the power plants, the defendant requested of the plaintiff to deliver another equipment at the same cost taking the total sum owed the plaintiff to GHC140,000.

Frimpong averred that the defendant later requested to be supplied a transmitter at a cost of GHS 90,000 but paid GHC40,000 as part of the cost, leaving a balance of GHC50,000.

However, all efforts to retrieve the rest of the money proved futile as the defendant denied transacting business with the Plaintiff, to the shock of Frimpong.

The Plaintiff is therefore praying to the Accra High Court to assist him in retrieving GHS 190,000 owed him by the defendant, Rev. Obofuor.
