A demonstration over the white elephant that the government has allowed the Komenda Sugar Factory to become has been advertised for Tuesday, the 6th of July.
Organizers, Concerned Citizens of the Komenda Traditional Area, are labeling the day “Red Tuesday” and have christened the upcoming demonstration as #FixKomendaSugarFactory.
A letter addressed to the District Commander of Police, signed by the convener, Samuel Awudzah, and two others said the demonstration is aimed to bring attention to the deterioration of the factory.
“The focus of our intended demonstration is to create public awareness about the increasing deterioration of the new Komenda Sugar Factory as a consequence of its neglect by the authorities whose duty it is to ensure its operationalization after it was commissioned on the 30th May 2016.”
It said the starting point for the demonstration will be the Komenda and Kissi townships respectively and end at Komenda Junction.
