It is expected that the Dr. Bawumia and Alan Kyeremanteng battle for the flagbearer ship of the ruling New Patriotic Party would be a fierce contest, but, nobody envisaged it to be this early, and this bloody.
Footsoldiers of the party belonging to these factions have clashed in a gory fight. The arena for this unnecessary altercation is said to be the funeral grounds of the father of a serial caller of the party at Suhum.
Video of the clash shared on Facebook by NDC activist, Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe accompanied a caption that suggested that the clash was between fans of Vice President Bawumia and Allan Kyeremanteng.
The video footage showed an already scattered, disorganized, and chaotic scene, apparently due to the confusion that ensued between a group who support Dr. Bawumia, and others who are said to belong to the Alan Kyeremanteng camp.
Shortly after the confrontation began, people started probing around for offensive weapons, ostensibly to cause harm to their adversaries. One man was seen running with a long stick, chasing and hitting an elderly man on the head.
This is troubling, considering the fact that, the contest for the flagbearer ship position is not anywhere close. What should be engaging the NPP and its leadership at this moment is how they can take Ghana out of its current conundrum of debt unsustainability into a path of prosperity that they promised.
Further reports suggest that several people belonging to either side of the faction have been sent to the hospital for sustaining various degrees of injuries.
