Aggrieved Menzgold customers demonstrate in Kumasi

Some embattled customers of the defunct Menzgold Company have beseeched the Amakom branch of the company to demonstrate for the failure to be paid back their investment over some months now.

The demonstrators blocked part of the main Amakom stretch to Asafo, Adum, and others amidst chanting and burning disposed car tyres.

Some of the protestors reiterated their call for the President to intervene as there appears to be no end in sight for the Menzold saga.

They indicated that they have petitioned him, the National Peace Council the Economic and Organised Crime Office and other state institutions but there has not been any encouraging response.

Firefighters were called to the scene to put off the fire set on the streets by the protesters.

The demonstration comes despite a warning by the Ashanti Regional Police to the leaders of the demonstration not to go ahead with the protest, citing their failure to comply with the Public Order Act.

The Deputy Regional Police PRO, ASP. Godwin Ahianyo, speaking earlier to a local radio station indicated that they do not rule out arresting any of the demonstrators whose actions maybe overboard.

According to the Police, the leadership of the demonstrators turned down their invitation to make arrangement for a new date as they were earlier informed not to go ahead with today’s demonstration.
