An aspiring presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, has denied reports that his decision to contest the presidential primaries of the party will depend on whether or not former President John Mahama will seek a comeback.

It is turning out that the Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson, Charlotte Osei, is still allowing payments to private companies whose contracts are at the centre of the petition that is seeking her impeachment from office.

Former President John Dramani Mahama was not in court to support past officials of the National Communications Authority (NCA) who are standing trial for wilfully causing financial loss to the state, contrary to earlier reports that he will be in court.

The self-declared republic of Somaliland has passed a law against rape for the first time. In the past, the victim could be forced to marry the rapist and the families would support such a resolution to hide the shame attached to rape.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has apparently been gripped with fear and panic since President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo gave presidential assent to the bill that establishes the Office of the Special Prosecutor.

Anti-corruption bodies have lauded the signing of the bill into law as they believe that it can go a long way to reducing or uprooting corruption in the public sector.

Members of the NDC fear that the alleged corrupt acts of some of them would not be ignored by the special prosecutor.
