Ghanaian political party behind bid to oust Togo president?

The Coalition says it will take its demands to the international community

A Ghanaian political party is heavily lending support to the Coalition of Opposition Parties in Togo to have the Gnassingbe dynasty brought to an end, 3news.com has gathered.

Over the weekend, mass rallies were held across the country to prosecute the agenda to have the current president ousted from office.

The rallies, held in six cities, turned bloody and deadly, especially in opposition stronghold Sokode, where two protesters died after clashing with gendarmerie.

The Coalition has called for the head of President Faure Gnassingbe, who is husband to the daughter of former Ghana president John Agyekum Kufuor.

At a press conference on Tuesday, the parties demanded the constitution of a commission of inquiry to look into the death of the protesters.

On the sidelines of the press conference, Coordinator of CAP 2015 – one of the parties – Brigitte Kafui Adjamagbo-Johnson disclosed to TV3‘s Komla Klutse in Lome that they are receiving support from a political party in Ghana.

She said they will push for the ousting of the Gnassingbe dynasty beyond the borders of Togo.

President Faure Gnassingbe assumed the president in 2005, when his father, Eyadema, died.

He won in elections in 2005, 2010 and 2015, when he took a third shot at the presidency, a move the opposition parties have been protesting.

  1. TV3, 3FM and 3News, you are all associated with this substandard, infantile article. How could you allow it to be posted? If a child wrote it, is there no elder at home? Who will gain anything positive from it? Didn’t Emmanuel Kwame Amoh finish JSS, even if he didn’t study lazy journalism? Couldn’t he have written of his observed heroism of demonstrators and security forces of both sides. Why must we always hear only negative, false and harmful stuff?
    The basics of journalism is usefulness, constructiveness and that you protect your sources. If I were Brigitte Kafui Adjamagbo-Johnson, I will sue you even if I said it, so that you will have the burden to prove it. If it were news-worthy, why didn’t Komla Klutse ask for even a clue as to the name of the said political party? If I was being bullied in school and I puffed up and said my father is a bodybuilder, must you run to town with it as gospel? Now all parties are under suspicion, hence Ghana. Imagine that Fuare eventually leaves, decides to take revenge, raises a rebel army to curve out half of Northern Region. Is that the direction of development we want for our country? I am disappointed. Will report this to NMC and Dean of the School of Journalism!
