Chairman Wontumi in his analysis, implied that the angry goat chews Mahama’s poster out of frustration of the President’s failed promises
Not just humans, animals too have decided to take part in the 2016 pre-election drama which has got both the young and old involved. A goat which was pictured standing close to a torn poster of President Mahama, has been blamed by some notable persons, for the damages on the poster.
The strange incident happened at Tarkwa Nsuem Municipal in the Western Region. It still remains unknown if the poster was already a chomped one, or if the goat in question did its thing on it.
Many people have tried to make meaning out of the trending picture, but no one has been able to give an exact analysis of what was really going on in the picture. But then, there could be a witness after all. The Ashanti regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman Wontumi has blamed the goat for the tears. According to some media reports, Chairman Wontumi said he saw the goat chew the President’s poster.
The NPP chairman reportedly said he was in the Western Region to campaign for the party, when the strange incident happened. Wontumi who visited some houses in the municipality during the campaign, said it was during his visit that he saw the goat angrily causing damage to Mahama’s poster.
Chairman Wontumi in his analysis, implied that the angry goat chews Mahama’s poster out of frustration of the President’s failed promises. According to Peacefmonline.com, the Chairman said the incident is a form of warning to the ruling party that, “domestic animals would not even be happy to go through another hardship under President Mahama.”
The Chairman also pointed out that since the President has asserted that he (Mahama) is a dead goat, live goats would attack him. He said this in reference to Mahama’s ‘dead goat’ comments, which he made in March 2015, while defending himself against critics of his government.
It could be recalled that Mahama, while dismissing criticisms against his government last year, said he has a ‘dead goat syndrome’. The President had implied that he is not moved by the demonstrations and protests against him, just as a dead goat does not fear a knife.
