Highlife musician, Kwabena Kwabena has expressed disappointment in

members of the ruling party who are casting insinuations and virtually

insulting persons complaining about the energy crisis.

dumsor crisis instead of taking it upon themselves to 'insult' the

citizenry for complaining.

everyday to the people…," he said.

A former aide of the Chief of Staff,Alhaji Halidu Haruna described

such persons including celebrities above thirty years and unmarried as

'irresponsible and prostitutes'. He has since apologized.

suchcomments "shock" him as he believes it would have been prudent for

government to be apologizing for their failure to tackle the energy

problem, now in its fourth year, instead of raining insults on those

who demand answers.

the right to comments about politics in the country.

service to humankind instead of lording it over the citizenry.
