Kuapa Kokoo gives farmers the vote

The latest of Sophi’s posts from her recent trip to Kuapa Kokoo:

The Ghana Electoral Commission oversees the voting

The whole Kuapa Kokoo election process was supervised by the electoral commission of Ghana and the Ministry of Co-operatives.  On the day everyone lined up to vote in the scorching sun and had their credentials checked again before casting their votes.  Having completed the ballot papers they had their little finger dipped in purple ink so that they could not vote again.  As soon as all the delegates had finished voting the counting began.  Music played, people danced, but mainly they enjoyed the shade of the canopies while waiting for the results.  One thing for sure was that there would be a new President as Mr CK Buah the incumbent, had stood down as defined by the constitution.
