732 fetish priests want sponsorship to india to perform rituals for ghana

Written by on 03/25/2013

Too much humour in Ghana right now. Some 732 traditional religious practitioners including fetish priests and priestesses, witch doctors, sorcerers, soothsayers and seers have called on the government of Ghana to help facilitate and coordinate a proposed trip to India and Dahomey in the Republic of Benin to perform special rituals for the country.

Kwaku Bonsam who it seems has initiated himself as the head of the ‘organisation’ mentioned that they would spend just a month to cut cost since Ghana is broke.

According to him: “We all serve one Supreme God. The Christians call him Jehovah God and get to him through Jesus Christ, the Moslems call him Allah and believe that Holy Prophet Mohammed is his Prophet; we also call him the Supreme Being and pray to him through our idols.

We are all Ghanaians and enjoy same privileges and rights so if the pastors are saying the Spirit of God has left their churches in Ghana so they want government’s support to travel to Israel to pray, and government is happily facilitating and coordinating, then we see no reason why government would turn us down when we all respect one constitution that allows for the freedom of religion.

He made a very good point saying the constitution respects freedom of worship and government should listen to them because they also pay taxes just like the Christians. He also mentioned that it would be considered discrimination based on their religious belief, if the government of Ghana failed to help them facilitate the trip (this man is really learning a lot from his New York base, you hardly hear a Ghana man crying religious discrimination).
