Angry customer of defunct DKM, Diamond Micro-Finance Ltd, God is Love Fun Club Jastar Motors investment and others in the Brong Ahafo Region have invoked curses on President John Mahama and the former Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Kofi Wampah.
The clients claim, President Mahama has incurred their wrath after he failed to fulfill his promise to retrieve their monies for them.
Spokesperson for the group, Kofi Sarpong in a press conference Tuesday in Nkoranza said, if President Mahama was able to release the Montie three who were sentenced for four months for contempt of court, then he should release their monies to them.
Mr .Sarpong while pouring schnapps on the ground said the President and Dr. Wampah has left them with no other option after the ‘lies and deceit’.
He revealed that, most of the customers out of frustration have committed suicide but they will rely on their gods for respite.
“Anyone who touches our money and not release it to us will face the wrath of the gods because we are tired of the lies from President Mahama and Dr Wampah. We want our god to collect our monies for us” he said.
The Bank of Ghana (BoG) shut down the company on Monday May 11, 2015, after it reportedly failed to comply with the terms and conditions required in its license and also for purportedly possessing assets deemed too insufficient to meet its liabilities to investors.
Devastated depositors across the country have blamed the BoG for alleged failure to ascertain the capabilities of the company from the onset before granting it license to operate.
Whilst they have sustained their anger particularly against the past Governor of the BoG, Dr. Henry Kofi Wampah, for causing “the mess”, the disappointed accountholders also have slammed President Mahama, under whose government the disaster struck suddenly, for taking so long to undo “the mess” despite the “several promises” he made.
Assembled at a park at Nkoranza blazing red bands, the enraged clients took turns to pour out their frustrations at the news conference.
