The Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has pledged to phase out all witch camps in the country particularly the Gambaga witch camp in order to make it a thing of the past.
According to her, the presence of witch camps in the country is a dent to the country’s image and democracy, noting that the practice of tagging people, especially the elderly, as witches and relegating them to camps, would no longer be tolerated.
She urged the youth in the area to desist from the practice, and rather protect and promote the welfare of the aged.
Prof. Opoku-Agyemang said a future NDC government would strictly apply the laws to stop the practice in the country.
She described the recent lynching of a 90-year-old woman in Kafaba, in the Gonja East District of the Savanna Region, on suspicion of being a witch, as “highly unacceptable”.
“We shall tackle this menace decisively,” she noted.
