“It is saddening to hear of some chiefs and Queen mothers in the region demonstrating and organizing press conferences to defend the first lady and his husband the President, instead of them to tell President Mahama and his wife to act fast on how customers of DKM and other will get their money but rather campaigning for them”.

According to the queen mothers, Lawyer Owusu Afriyie popularly known as Sir John and Major Derrick Yaw Oduro (rtd) attacked them for rising up to defend the first lady.

The NPP MP who is a retired senior army officer speak to media during new patriotic party (NPP) Minority caucus in Parliament from the Brong Ahafo Region press conference at Techiman on Microfinance operation in Brong Ahafo Region, Major Derrick Yaw Oduro said “I have never accused First Lady Lordina Mahama that she is behind the DKM microfinance, so there is no way for me to render apologise to BA NDC Queen Mothers, so they can invoke curses as they have said”.

Meanwhile the NPP Minority caucus in Parliament from the Brong Ahafo Region said it is disgrace and shameful for Queen Mothers engaging in partisan politics which 1992 Constitution restricts chiefs from partisan politics.

“This people have been defrauded and have lost huge amounts of monies in the process, some have died and they are continuing dying”.

According to them, these victims are putting the necessary pressure on the government questioning the conduct of the president and his wife and BOG, the position of some chiefs and queen mother’s is to defend the president and wife.

“We as MP does will continue to give the respect due Nananom and disrespect for Nananom by eminent people like us will not augur well for traditional communities”.
