Actress, Juliet Asante has walked to parliament in protest against the rising political party vigilantism in the country.
The Executive Director of Black Star International Film Festival (BSIFF) who presented a petition to Parliament after the walk said she will not rest until vigilantism is scrapped from the political scene in Ghana.
Speaking to Citi TV after the walk, Juliet Asante said she will stage another protest should government fail at disbanding the various political party affiliated vigilante groups within a month.
“We are giving the government one month to disband vigilante groups. And when I say government I mean everybody who is part of the leadership and management of Ghana. This includes all the key political parties that are represented at Parliament,” she said.
“If by one month time nothing happens, we will keep on walking. I hope Ghanaians will join me and raise their voices against vigilantism,” she noted.
Her petition was received by Principal Assistant Clerk in Parliament, Ebenezer Ahumah Djietror, and the Acting Director of Public Affairs in Parliament, Kate Addo, on behalf of the Clerk of Parliament, Emmanuel Anyimadu.
Juliet further called on Ghanaians to add their voices against vigilantism to ensure the growing menace is curbed.
