Customers who had their investments locked up in some microfinance companies in Sunyani are asking government to intervene in the release of their funds or prepare to lose their votes in 2016.

The customers who took to the streets of Sunayani on Wednesday in a massive demonstration, wielded placards like inscriptions like, " The Dead Goat Must Rise",   echoing their requests for the president of the Republic  to intervene in the release of their locked up funds.


The customers of DKM Microfinance, one of the companies in the region, have been agitating for the release of their investment since October 2015 when the company's frozen accounts were released by the Bank of Ghana.  The Central Bank accused the company of flouting the Banking Act, by taking on more investments than their assets could support.

On Tuesday, the customers of DKM took their agitations further by attacking the government officials in their regions, vowing to make life unbearable for them if government does not intervene. Customers in Berkwai in the Ashanti Region, Tuesday, also attacked the District Chief Executive of the area for keeping mute on the matter.

With all these attempts apparently yielding little results, the customers are threatening to vote against the government in 2016 elections.


In Wednesday's demonstration, the customers wielded placards saying " No Money No Votes", " Oh President, Protect Your People" " I just need my money oh John."
