Some traders at Kasoa of the Central Region have invoked curses on members of the Awutu Senya East Municipal Taskforce for forcing them to wear face masks.
According to the taskforce members, they went to the market to enforce the ‘no face mask no business’ protocol as instructed by President Nana Akufo-Addo in his latest COVID29 update.
The Second in Command to Operations Commander, Francis Patapaa, told the media that immediately they reached the market circle, some of the market women and men came out with eggs and schnapps to invoke curses on them.
“We went to the market asked them to buy face masks upfront before entering the market. Some complied but we were informed one male trader invoked curses on us just for enforcing directives,” he said.
Some of the culprits have been marched to the traditional leaders for breaching both national and local laws and to persuade them to reverse the curses.
