The Menace of Political Party Vigilantism: Reflections from Sunyani

CODEO today, climaxed its ninth regional engagement in the nationwide confab on political party vigilantism in the Brong-Ahafo region with a formal statement via a press conference. The presser allowed CODEO to relay the reflections of various stakeholders (The Security, the clergy, traditional leaders, political parties, the media, the regional peace council, the regional bar association) in the region on this national security threat. Addressing the presser, CODEOs Ambassador Francis Tsegah restated CODEOs stance on political vigilantism, that “The existence of political vigilante groups is illegal and the Government should ban these groups immediately as a matter of national security”. CODEOs Advisory Board member Mr. Nicholaus Akyire after highlighting manifestations of political vigilantism in the Brong-Ahafo region presented the solutions by stakeholders to curb this menace. He pointed out that ” The intelligence unit of the Security Services in the region should map out vigilante activities and develop specific strategies to deal with them, Political parties should develop more rules and regulations to govern the activities of their youth groups and Stakeholders particularly the media should name and shame politicians who form, fund and solicit for the services of vigilante groups.
