Zanetor Rawlings Alleges Politicisation of Government’s Covid-19 Relief Efforts

Klottey-Korley MP, Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, is accusing the government of politicising relief efforts to persons hit hard by the restrictions imposed by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

The opposition NDC MP on Tuesday, condemned reports of state agents demanding evidence of party affiliation before giving them food.

The flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama made a similar comment while making donations to some 20,000 persons who are unable to fend for themselves following the restrictions imposed on movements as a measure to contain the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

“This must end now and immediately because coronavirus does not know NPP and NDC. Neither does it know CPP, PNC, PPP or APC etc,” the former president said, Tuesday, April 14.

While providing food for some head porters (Kayayei) in Accra, Zanetor Rawliings stated: “This is a huanitarian crisis, women and children are hungry. They are locked down because it’s not their fault the virus is in Ghana.”

“People are literally being asked to show evidence of their party membership before being given food. 

“This is not acceptable [and] this is very sad [because] the virus does not show whether you are NDC or NPP before it infects you,” Zanetor Rawlings alleged.
